The session started as usual with members chatting and enjoying their teas, coffees and biscuits. Simon our Rotary quiz master then distributed a picture quiz asking the members to identify the persons, whose names were related to towns and cities.

The members enjoyed the quiz and did really well. This was followed by Chair Yoga exercises by Richard, our yoga teacher. The colourful beanbags were used during this session and again this resulted in a very enjoyable atmosphere.

The yoga session was then followed with James Le Bec our musical entertainment. James sang some old-time favourites which members enjoyed listening to and joined in singing followed with some dancing. James is well known for his music quiz using a large dice which becomes challenging amongst members and very enjoyable.

James asked the members to identify the singers before throwing the dice. The members did very well and managed to get more points than the other clubs. Everyone left with a smile.

Thank you to our church volunteers making teas and coffees, setting up the venue and making the necessary preparations for the sessions; Dorothy and Andrew.

Thank you to our Rotarians from Barnet; Jim (President), John, Malcolm and Simon. Many thanks to our Doctor Rebecca Hatjiosif. Also, thanks to Lisa, Chairman of Dementia Club UK, for her continuous support to make the Dementia Club at St John’s Church successful.

 

Members always enjoy attending at the Britannia centre. When everyone was settled with their teas and coffees Lisa welcomed everyone and introduced Mark who was ready to give members a quiz. The questions were a little hard but members always enjoy the challenge.

The session followed with celebrating and this was celebrated in the usual DCUK fashion.

It was then time for some dancing as Moshe attended and as always Moshe always gets people up and dancing. Pam and John enjoyed doing the Jive and Tita was given the microphone by Moshe to sing an Italian song which happen to be Tita’s favourite song.

Barnet TV recorded a session on the 25th September 2018. Today was the official launch of the Dementia Club at St John’s United Reformed Church in association with the Rotary Club of Barnet.

I would like to say a few words with affection about a special club Mollie and I have found.

It has about seven or eight different nationalities as members. They talk and get on well together. They laugh and joke together and also sometimes dance and sing together, even including “She Will Be Coming Round The Mountain When She Comes”!

Strangely enough they also play indoors golf together. Wouldn’t it be marvellous if the whole world behaved like that without conflict or war?
