A busy session as usual at the Finchley Memorial Hospital Lisa kept members busy with quizzes whilst having their teas and cakes.
A game of Bingo was played which is always taken seriously as members concentrate on their numbers.
Members were then very keen to show the items they brought to the session. It was very interesting and everyone enjoyed listening to the various stories. As it was also D Day, one of the carers Helen talked about how her cousin found the gravestone of a lost family member who served in the war.
David in the pictures is showing members some of his paintings. Rochelle is holding a painting is the daughter of David and Norma. Her mum Norma is sitting down. Rochelle is proudly showing a painting her mum did.
David showing his painting of horses racing. Rochelle is also holding another painting her dad David painted of a model. This last painting means a great deal to the family as this is the boat they used to own and sale the English Channel many times before they sold it. It had great memories for them
Viv and Brian showed members the following pictures.
This is a picture of Brian who met the Queen Mother and Viv in the white dress next to the Queen Mother, Brian speaking to Prime Minister James Callaghan and Brian speaking to Richard Attenborough.
Brian showing members some of his medals he received in the RAF and some other medals.
The session then followed with the Tovertafel and Lisa showed members the new games which they really enjoyed.
We then had music and singing and dancing and everyone left with a smile. Thank you to our volunteers today. It was good to see Melvyn return after convalescing from his fall.
Thank you to our new volunteer Angela who is a great hit with members and thank you also to Risom who once again attended to help.
