We had a very busy session today with a visit from 12 students from National Citizen Service ‘NCS’ The students were led by their senior mentor Stefan Filby and Nora Perone.
We also had some birthdays to celebrate. It was Pantelis birthday celebrating 81 years. His wife brought a huge fresh cream cake and other special biscuits which everyone really enjoyed.
We also celebrated another belated birthday for Ruth who is 66 years old. All members sang Happy Birthday to both Pantelis and Ruth and of course celebrated with a firework candle.
The students were great as usual with the members interacting and helping during the session. The leaders introduced themselves informing members that they would be putting together a drama for tomorrow’s session at Hendon Town Hall and this would be based on what they have heard and learnt from members during today’s session.
The session then followed with Richard taking the chair yoga exercise with everyone and even the students joined in. The last part of the session we took out the games and the students were happy to play with members. Lisa then read a couple of jokes before everyone left and also gave members some new badges today.
Our thanks to our volunteers Eleanor, Melvyn, Dr Angela and we also had a new volunteer today Maureen.
