Today’s session was led by Eleanor:
"We started off with two quizzes, ‘Find The Football Teams’, with gaps left for letters to be filled in and ‘Complete The Proverb’ where the last word of the saying was missing. Both proved popular and there was fierce competition between the members at each table!
Eleanor then read an extract from ‘Somebody I Used to Know’, a book recently published by Wendy Mitchell who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in 2015 at the age of 58. It was a very moving account of the day Wendy got lost in her office at work. There wasn’t a sound in the room as Eleanor read.
Next it was time for a sing along to some old favourites, including It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles and Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner. It was lovely to see so many members joining in and the gentleman and ladies responded to the challenge of singing a verse each on their own!
We finished with two games of card bingo which is popular with everyone.
My thanks to our volunteers, Melvyn and Eva, and to all the carers who helped set up the activities and cleared up afterwards"
