The weather has been very hot for a few weeks now and today was no exception. We still however had a very busy session which also included the National Citizen Service (NCS) students. The NCS students attend every year and they are always a pleasure. The students sat and chatted to all the members making teas and coffees and generally helping.
We then played bingo which was good fun. There was also a birthday to celebrate. It was Grazia’s 86th birthday. Lisa made sure it was celebrated in the usual DCUK way with a cake sparkler. Jo her daughter brought 2 home made cakes and another birthday cake which was cut and shared out. Lisa then surprised members with ice creams. There was enough for everyone including the students.
As it was so hot, Lisa then suggested for members to go out in the garden. Members liked the idea. Students then took all the chairs out for members to sit. We took our traditional group photo with the students and then we did some singing and dancing. The students were by now very relaxed, integrating with the members and really enjoying themselves.
It was a really great afternoon and members are looking forward to seeing the NCS students again on the 8 the August when they will have prepared a surprise for the members.
Thank goodness for the students today as Lisa had no volunteers.
