AN EXHIBITION of childhood nostalgia at Clifton Park Museum has been refreshed with more fondly-remembered toys.

Staff said there had been a great response to an appeal for treasured items — and the stories behind them.

Toys from the 1940s onwards have been hand-picked to give an idea of life as a child growing up in Rotherham.

Cllr Taiba Yasseen, Rotherham Borough Council’s Cabinet member for culture, said: “Thanks to the appeal, the cases are filled with items which have stories to tell, all of their own.

“The exhibition is full of music, games, fashion, toys and more in what may well be the most colourful exhibition to date. 

“Come along and find out about some of the hilarious and fascinating childhood stories of some of Rotherham’s residents from across the borough.”

The free exhibition runs until June next year.
