Our Dementia Club at St John’s church was very well attended today, we had 28 attendees, including 18 members and carers from Friends in Need.

The session started as usual with members chatting and enjoying their teas, coffees and biscuits.

The quiz questions were then distributed to all the tables. The quiz consisted of 12 questions with the answers relating to colours. Everybody enjoyed the quiz especially when the answers that were given in the answers sheet did not match the questions.

After the quiz we had a new yoga teacher, Sue, that did about 30 minutes of exercises. Sue did very well and made everybody to join in and enjoy the exercises.

The yoga session was then followed with our entertainer James Le Bec who sang his usual songs some of which were 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. The members managed to identify all 10 songs and they got a total of 101 points, which were above all previous clubs. The members enjoyed listening to James’s songs and joined in singing and dancing.
