We had a presentation today from Mr Hugh Petrie MA - a Barnet Council Heritage Development Officer.
Lisa invited Hugh to present some archive materials that would stir some memories for some of the Dementia Club UK members. It certainly did just that. Hugh brought some World War II materials and talked about the history for each of the items.
He then showed a slide presentation showing the old cinema in Hendon which is now a gym and the Queen mother in some of her visits during the war which was fascinating. It stirred up conversations with members and questions. Members would have liked extra time and expressed their thanks to Hugh asking for further visits.
The session then followed with Tai Chi with Egon which members enjoyed and found challenging.
The session ended with some singing and then some social activities. I had no volunteers today but as usual our carers always jump in to help which I am grateful.
