Description The Scullery at Hartlebury has been created for children to experience a day in the life of a Wartime child. Housewife Dolly Tubb, will lead the activities
Children should arrive suitably attired with their gas mask boxes. The room is equipped with a variety of make-do-and-mend items to give a real flavour of the period.

Once the children have found out about life during the Second World War they can take part in a series of hands-on activities including finding out about ration food and tasks for children around the home. These activities give the children an opportunity to learn and develop new skills.
