On Saturday December 1st 2018, we held our second Sharing Heritage event. Mrs Ibbitts’ 1918 Christmas. Mrs Ibbitts’ shop and parlour told the story of Bacup during it’s first peace time Christmas in over four years, whilst the Fern Hill hospital room played host to an exhibition on the Spanish flu and its effects on civillians and returning soldiers. Our little visitors were invited to make Christmas baubles and cards whilst the grown ups enjoyed a mulled wine and mince pie.
