Guide Badges and Certificates

There continue to be new items arriving at the museum – items of historic and social interest. Just yesterday a small package arrived containing Girl Guide badges and certificates earned by a Market Lavington girl more than 60 years ago. The young lady concerned – still very much alive – lived at Homestead Farm. This year we had already planned a display about this farm and its people so now we have just a little more to include in the display.

From the collection, I have selected the ‘needlewomen’ badge and certificate for this posting. I have blurred the name on the certificate because the person concerned is still alive.

If you wish to see more about Homestead Farm during the twentieth century then do visit the museum (open from May to October on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Bank Holiday afternoons) and enjoy a chat with a couple of our volunteer stewards. If you have items with an Easterton or Market Lavington connection that you think might be of interest to the museum then do contact the curator by clicking the link below
