On the 18th January Irene Rogan brought in a beautiful collection of decorated eggs for us to admire.

Irene explained that her sisters late mother-in law – Muriel-, who had connections with Millom had hand-made the decorated eggs as a hobby and they were so special that they were dubbed ‘The Faberge Eggs of the North’.

When Muriel passed away, the majority of the egg collection were left to her own family and Irene was left with the broken ones. Irene then restored the eggs to their former beauty and now takes pride in sharing their existence with others.

Thank you to Irene for sharing her story with us.
