THT Nanny Bench Raffle Fundraiser

Nanny

Sackville resident Ray Dixon has made an exact reproduction of the "nanny bench" in the possession of the Tantramar Heritage Trust and on display in the front hall of the Boultenhouse Heritage Centre on Queens Road. The Trust has gratefully received the donation of the reproduction bench and is raffling it off as a fund-raiser. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20 and are available at the Boultenhouse Heritage Centre and from members of the Trust's Board of Directors. The draw will take place at the Trustís fund raising dinner in November 17. The nanny bench allows two adults to sit and rock, but its greatest use is with the insertion of a side that allows an adult to rock while the baby is cradled on one end of the bench. As near as Ray can determine, the bench was built by his ancestor Charles Dixon, who was born in 1803, founded Dixon Shipyard and built the celebrated vessel the Sarah Dixon, but was also a builder of houses and maker of furniture.
