For the first time we had all 11 of our regular Friendship Group volunteers at a session at the same time – a big help with a busy afternoon.
We had several visitors to the session today. Tricia came to ask people about their experiences with dentists as part of research for her PhD. She was so engrossed in chatting to group members that she plans to come to our next session to talk to the ones she missed. Pauline came with two of her colleagues from Home Instead Greenwich and Bexley. They are looking to set up a “Dementia Hub for Home Instead” soon. Watch this space. And finally, Alf came to speak to me about a Dementia Friends session I am running for his group on the 21st March. It should be fun and educational as usual. More information about Dementia Friends here.
While this was going on we also enjoyed some word-puzzles and jigsaws.
The energetic types played balloon tennis.
Our new singer, Nikki, was slightly delayed – but launched into her set soon after she arrived.
The group joined-in with dancing and singing.
With the new year comes a new main funder for Reflections. We thank Metro Gavs and Greenwich Council for funding us for the last two years and are very pleased to say the Lottery Community Fund is supporting us for 2019-20 and 2020-21. We also need to say thank you to our volunteers, who give all their time for free. Lovely people!
See you next month.
