We had 17 members today with their carers. Lisa welcomed everyone and Dr Angela one of our Trustees and also Andrew Mills a church Warden at St John’s United Reformed Church in Barnet. Lisa also wished all our Jewish members a Happy New Year ‘Shanah Tovah’ which is celebrated on Friday 18th September.
Our music entertainer James Le Bec was then ready to start and sang 2 songs before starting the music quiz. The first song which got members moving their arms to was- ‘You got the whole world in your hands’ and then followed with a Cliff Richard song called ‘Young Ones’. One of our carers held a photo up showing Laurie London (the singer who sang ‘You got the whole world in your hands’ ). The photo showed Laurie sitting at the table with them celebrating their 50th the wedding anniversary.
Members were then ready for the music quiz. Everyone is muted so that they can hear each song clip. Before James plays a few seconds of the song, Mark rolls the digital dice which appears on the screen. Members used to physically throw a giant size dice before and it was always good fun trying to get a high score. In the virtual game each time the dice is rolled this is added up to a total score at the end after the 10 music quiz questions. Our score this week was 93, unbelievably one less than last week. We might need to improve this score next week! Thank you James.
Richard Kravetz is then ready to do the Yoga with everyone which members as always enjoy. Richard then continues to do a general knowledge quiz after. Very interesting questions especially the question about who in the Beatles song ‘Penny Lane’ keeps the portrait of the Queen in his pocket. The answer was the Fireman.
Lisa thanked Richard and wished him also ‘Shanah Tovah’. Lisa then read a couple of jokes and then called out the Bingo numbers. Our Bingo winners today were Gina and Chris.
