A good attendance to today’s session. We had 25 members including some members from Friends in Need. We registered four new persons who became members of Dementia Club UK.
The session started as usual with members chatting and enjoying their teas, coffees, biscuits and cakes. Simon, our Rotary quiz master, then distributed his quiz, which consisted of 10 anagrams of famous persons. The members found the questions a bit more difficult than usual, however, they enjoyed themselves trying to find the answers.
After the quiz Richard, our yoga exercises teacher, did about 30 minutes of chair yoga exercises. Richard introduced colourful scarves to make the exercises more enjoyable. All attendees joined in and had a very enjoyable time.
The yoga session was then followed with our entertainer James Le Bec who sang songs selected by the members. James then asked the members to identify various songs and when they guessed them correctly, they were asked to throw a large dice to get points. Unfortunately, the total number of points during this session were well below other Dementia Clubs.
We also had a member’s birthday today, and all the members sang Happy Birthday. The members enjoyed listening to James’s songs and joined in singing and dancing.
Thank you to our church volunteers for making teas and coffees, setting up the venue and making the necessary preparations for the sessions; Dorothy, Sue and Andrew.
Thank you also to our Rotarians from Barnet; Jim (President), John, Victor, Malcolm and Simon. Many thanks to our Doctor Rebecca Hatjiosif for attending. Also, thanks to Mark and Lisa the Chairman of Dementia Club UK, for their continuous support making the Dementia Club at St John’s Church so successful.
