As usual we had so many members today, we had 4 new members. It was a beautiful sunny and warm day.
Lisa welcomed everyone and gave everyone a quiz to start with which all enjoyed.
We then celebrated 2 birthdays. Miltis’s birthday on 15th October will be 84 years old and Ruth’s birthday which was on the 6th October. Both were celebrated in the usual DCUK fashion.
Dr Angela then gave members an update about the Flu jab and suggested that everyone should book their Flu jabs with their GP's as the FMH chemist this year is in short supply. Dr Angela also advised everyone that they should check before they have the vaccine to make sure that they have the ‘adjuvanted vaccine’ as this is the vaccine which has the extra ingredients for older age to help them develop a stronger defence.
The session then followed with some singing and name that tune and then bingo which is a real favourite. Lisa then played their favourite songs ‘Coming Round the Mountain’, the ‘Birdy song’ and the ‘Hokey Kokey’. This got members up dancing including the new members. The finale dance was the Zorba dance which Lisa got all members moving by exercising to the music. Everyone was buzzing with joy.
It was then time for the Tovertafel and we also had our new members round the table. It was lovely to see how members interacted with the games with smiles. It was a really fun pack afternoon.
Thank you to our volunteers Melvyn and Eleanor for their help today during the session and Dr Angela.
