Today’s session was in the café area which was very successful.

Lisa welcomed everyone and after their teas and coffees and cakes they were ready to do some exercises with Annalisa who always makes exercising fun

It was then time for some music entertainment and James Le Bec sang some old time classics which members enjoyed singing and dancing. The challenge then begins when James brings out his big soft dice to play name that tune. There is always a previous score to beat from other organisations but members make sure to try and beat the score with a little bit of footwear cheating!!

Great fun and lots of laughter. Thank you to Mark for helping throughout the session.

A very busy session as usual. Lisa welcomed everyone and gave a special welcome to 2 of our members Helen and Chrystalla who have been away in Cyprus for 3 months.

We had a new musical entertainer today Mickie Driver who was dressed as a Pearly King. He sang a lot of old times favourites which everyone enjoyed and danced and also sang together with him.

He also works with a Vera Lynn charity and sang some of her numbers. Near the end of his performance he played a recording of Vera Lynn. His songs stirred many emotions.

Thank you to our volunteers today – Annette, Angela Chen, Melvyn, Dr Angela, Arzu and of course Mark.

Our Rotary Club volunteers from Rotary Clubs Edgware & Stanmore and Northwick Park – Danielle, Helen, Ritu and Mollie were all ready and waiting for our members with Lisa our Chairman and Mark one of our Trustees and our musical entertainer James and his partner Joy.

We had a good number of members today. Also in attendance was our Rotary Club of Mill Hill volunteers – President Desmond and his wife Bobsie, Jeanette and Graham, Janet and Peter. It was also a pleasure to see Theresa one of our dementia club volunteers who attends other clubs.

Lisa welcomed everyone and thanked the Rotary Club of Mill Hill today for bringing the biscuits and cakes and milk. One of the members Hettie also brought in a home baked honey cake she made to share out as it is the Jewish New Year next week. Hettie wanted to say a few words about the Jewish New Year which everyone enjoyed hearing.

We also had a birthday to celebrate today – Brian Cuthbert’s birthday which was on the 25th September and this was celebrated in the usual DCUK fashion. Brian was very happy.

Richard then arrived to do some chair yoga exercises with everyone and also brought out the colourful silk scarves which are great fun to use.

The final part of the session was great fun playing Putting Golf and magnetic darts which everyone took part. Thank you again to all our Rotarians and Theresa for helping out during the session.

Members were welcomed today by Lisa and Rotary President Eugenia as Charlyn was away. Lisa gave members some water colour painting which was  enjoyed by all whilst drinking their teas/coffees and chatting.

Eon our fitness instructor then arrived and as usual gave members a really good and fun work out. We also had a birthday to celebrate today as it was Mabel’s 87th birthday. The birthday was of course celebrated in the usual DCUK fashion and Mabel was very happy and had lots of fussing from family and friends.

We were then joined by James Bernard our music entertainer who is absolutely magical as he gets everyone motivated and up dancing straight away. He will be missed as next year he is following his dream career in New York where he will become even more famous. Good luck James.

Thank you to our Rotarians Eugenia and also another Rotarian visitor Laurence who enjoyed the session.
