We had over 30 members again today.
Kevin one of the volunteers who comes with his wife Olivia and his mother in law Mable took the activities part of the session today. He first played chicken charades which was very funny and then played Family Fortunes which again members really enjoyed.
The session then followed with poetry by Cllr John Hart who read some well known poems and also read one in French. Everyone enjoyed the poetry.
I took the opportunity to also talk to members about special religious holidays on Sunday 12th March. I told them about Purim which is a Jewish celebration where people wear fancy dress and drink lots of alcohol and Holi which is a Hindu celebration where people shower each other with coloured water and red and green powder. I also talked about the meaning of Lent which is observed by fasting 40 days and how with the Greek Orthodox religion we have the painting of eggs at Easter.
The last part of the session we had singing and also played catching the ball and then finished off with 5 minutes of stretching exercises and a 5 minute general discussion.
Thank you to Melvyn and Dr Angela our volunteers for their help at the session today and thank you to Olivia one of the carers for assisting.
