Two more glimpses into Lincolnshire’s past will be offered by Grantham Museum.

People are invited to share memories and memorabilia of living and working in the county, especially in the Forties and Fifties, on Thursday October 2.

And on Sunday, October 5, there will be a talk, with music and song, exploring the county’s farming heritage.

Both dates are part of the Past and Present project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The first of the events will include displays and a bookstall about the impact of the war on the local community.

Admission to this event, from 10.30am to 3pm is free.

The talk about the farming year in Licolnshire, titled Harvest Home - music and folklore, will be presented by Tom Lane, Nigel Creasey and Teri Clarke at 2pm and admission is £2.50.

Grantham museum is on St Peter’s Hill.
