Today was another very busy session with lots of fun activities and lots of smiles.
Lisa welcomed everyone giving a brief update and also welcomed Muz and Faz who had already set up various activities for each table before members arrived.
Lisa then mentioned one of the members - Shital’s birthday which was celebrated yesterday and everyone sang happy birthday to him. Shital kindly brought a box of chocolates which was shared out.
One of the carers – James, who attended the recent Blenheim Palace outing brought in the Alice in Wonderland book to read a small paragraph from the book. James decided to read the passage where Alice meets the Cheshire cat. Everyone enjoyed listening to that and thanked James.
It was now time for Muz and Faz to take the second part of the session. They had a warm welcome from all the members. Muz and Faz had various games on each table and the aim to day was to circuit the games so that each table had the chance to play all the games. Members really enjoyed especially the egg box game where they bounce the ping pong ball which should then go into the egg box.
There was a lot of fun and competition amongst the members. Some members wanted to also do some exercises and therefore Lisa did a few exercises with those who wanted to exercise.
It was then time for music entertainment and members were delighted to see James Bernard. James as usual always plays the right music and it was not long before most members were up and dancing.
Thank you to our volunteers today – Melvyn, Angela Chen, Dr Angela, Melissa and her husband Bob and of course Mark who helped throughout the session. It was lovely to see Melissa with her Christmas tinsel hat which members really liked as this also marked the beginning of Seasonal joy.
