Storytelling with Strathcarron Hospice

October 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Strathcarron Hospice has announced further dates for their “Storytelling”, “Musical Memories”, and “Local History Stories and Events” Zoom sessions.

The sessions are designed to be very relaxed and informal, providing some light relief each month from the current pandemic. They are open to everyone; you do not need to have a connection to the Hospice to attend.

The sessions all begin at 2pm via Zoom, with the next taking place:

  • Storytelling and Reminiscing: Tuesday 26th October and Tuesday 23rd November

Leading the Storytelling is Jean Currie, a volunteer with Strathcarron who will reminisce about “the good old days”.  She will lead each session by telling a personal story, and is happy for people to just listen, but is hopeful that her reminiscing will spark memories in others which they may wish to share.

The Zoom details (linked for your convenience) are the same for all Storytelling sessions. (Meeting ID: 645 564 0456; Passcode: 252391.)

  • Musical Memories: Thursday 11th November

These sessions are led by Tommy, a supporter of Strathcarron who has played in a band for many years and is keen to share his talents and love of music with others.

Tommy will play “Songs from the Decades” and encourage people to share any memories they have of the songs played. He will also welcome requests, which he will slot into a varied set of traditional and modern favourites.

People can sing along, or simply sit and listen, as they prefer.

The Zoom details (linked for your convenience) are the same for all Musical Memories sessions. (Meeting ID: 645 564 0456; Passcode: 252391.)

  • Local History Stories and Events: Tuesday 16th November

Ken has an incredible knowledge of local history and the stories behind events that happened in Central Scotland. He is delighted to share his passion of local Scottish history with everyone and answer questions about well-known historical moments, and will also talk about lesser known facts.

The Zoom details (linked for your convenience) are the same for all Local Histories sessions. (Meeting ID: 645 564 0456; Passcode: 252391.)
