We had a full session as usual and also had 3 visitors today. Two visitors from Rotary Club of Barnet – John Michaelides and Malcolm Bye and also Andrew Mills from St John’s Church (United Reformed) which is on the corner of Somerset Road and Mowbray Road, New Barnet EN5 1RH.
Lisa introduced the visitors to members and informed them that the purpose of their visit was to observe our session with the view to hopefully setting up another similar dementia club in New Barnet in the New Year on the First Tuesday of every month. Members were delighted to hear this news.
The session then followed with Kevin one of the carers doing his usual quiz with members. Kevin is always a great hit with members as he makes it very enjoyable with lots of banter.
The session then followed with Egon our Tai Chi instructor – which again members always look forward to. The session ended with some singing and Lisa read some of her jokes which always makes members laugh.
One of the volunteers Melvyn also said a few words about his recent trip to India. He wanted to read a couple of poems but there was no time. We look forward to those next time.
Thank you to our volunteers, Eleanor and Melvyn for their continued support. Also thank you to those carers who bring some biscuits for the sessions – very much appreciated.
