I do like to be beside the seaside,
Oh I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll along the
Prom, prom, prom,
Where the brass band plays
(Words from ‘I do Like to be Beside the Seaside’ by John A Glove-Kind)
Have we taken you back to the fun filled days of sand in your sandwiches and handkerchiefs on your head? Or, sheltering from the rain in the arcades?
From our ‘Holiday at the Seaside’ memory box to ‘The British Holiday - the Golden Years’ DVD our Reminiscence Collection has a variety of seaside themed items, which you can share with your family and friends to spark memories and conversation about the past.
All items in the collection can be reserved for pick up from your local Hertfordshire library; browse the whole collection online here.
Are we there yet?
Oh, the joy of a long hot car journey! Our ‘A Day Out in the Car’ memory box has us reminiscing about the travel games we used to play to pass the time. I-spy was always a favourite.
Did your family have any less well known games they enjoyed playing?
We’ve added to our selection of jigsaws with these large colourful 16 piece puzzles.
Do you remember the scent of Cussons’ talcum powder or the taste of Bird’s Cake Mix? Use the search term ‘jigsaw’ on our online catalogue to see more of our puzzle collection.
