Request for Artifacts 1920's & 1960's

Started by: jspriggs (6)

Hi my name is John Spriggs. I work at Coops Foyer as a training officer with the young people resident here. We’re attending a resident’s conference at the JJB, 14th September. Throughout the conference within a function room, there’ll be displays representing each decade from 1910 till present day. We at Coops aim to produce displays representing 1920’s & 1960’s.

My request is for the loan of any artifacts from these eras, which we could use in our displays. Please be assured that we’ll take great care of anything offered us and that all items will be returned immediately after the conference.

If you can help or would like further details, then please contact me John Spriggs on 08451114442 (opt 4) or email

Thank you.

Why do you use an expensive, so called, local rate 0845 number? Do you not have a number beginning with 01, which for the majority of people, this would be cheaper to call.

With reference to our 0845 number, it's simply the way the Foyer's phone system is set up. All calls are charged at standard local rate. Alternatively I can also be emailed and I'd be happy to reply via phone. Thanks.

Hi again! We're now getting quite close to the 14th September, when we put together our displays. We've got several items but would be very grateful for more. I assure you whatever you can loan us for the day will be kept safe and returned immediately afterwards.

Items of interest could be LPs, photos, coins, maps of the time, 1966 world cup memorabilia, football/rugby programmes and books, just to mention a few things among many other there could be.

Once again thanks and don't hesitate to contact me for further details.
