Lucy memories - a call to action

by Judith Roberts on 27 February 2015


For many of us our memories of times past are recalled as images: our families, friends, places we’ve loved (or not!) and our pets. We all have heads full of snapshots. Quite often, however, our remembered pictures are simply of objects that were significant to us at particular times in our lives; think of Proust recalling the madeleines that he ate on Sunday mornings as a child in Combray.

As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations we are asking our alumnae to recall objects from their time at Lucy Cavendish College and to tell Nautilus readers how they became loaded with significance. What, for you, really evokes the remembrance of time past?

These ‘objects of significance’ can be anything you choose – but not people, of course. Please let us know, in about 100-200 words and we will publish your writing in the next edition of Nautilus. If you have a picture to accompany your account, that would be helpful, but don’t worry if not – we’d still love to hear from you.

Continuing the theme of looking back to the Sixties, we are hoping to run a vintage clothing stall at the Garden Party on Sunday, 14th June. If you have any clothes or accessories that you would like to donate, please get in touch with Katie Godfrey on 01223 339241 or kcg28@cam.ac.uk.
