The return visit was a huge success. The arrival of Percy Powell Cotton's travel trunk caused excitement and anticipation in the Garden Room. The treasures emerged from the trunk and were passed around for our residents to examine, items included:

Percy's safari jacket with the claw marks from a Lion attack, the Whiskey flask with the bullet whole ( the flask actually saved his life!) also amongst the items were a Buffalo hide saddle bag, & numerous items with so many stories related to them...what a character Percy was.

Our residents were captivated and swept away with the adventure stories. as more artefacts were produced including a Hippo hide, camera case, a Zebra hair bull whip, an ever ready battery torch, calliper's and Percy's personal  shovel.

We have only one question... when will you return to fascinate and entertain us again?
