Viki was popular, as usual, with her excellent singing and interaction with the group.
Her version of Cilla Black’s “You’re my World” was outstanding.
We welcomed visitors from the Rotary Club of Greenwich who joined in with the pre-entertainment discussions and activities. Two visitors from Healthwatch Greenwich came along to gather the views of some of our group on health services in Greenwich. One of these visitors had attended a recent Dementia Friends session I had run at the request of Greenwich council, and I was pleased she was complementary about my interactive presentation. The Carers Centre were again in attendance (we wish Sharon a quick recovery from her bad back). We also had a new mum and daughter join us, swelling the ranks of the ballroom dance enthusiasts. To our surprise, the mum had been at ballroom dance classes Janet and I attended about 15 years ago!
We had an excuse (did we need one?) to join in the dancing and wonderful singing.
We were concerned to hear of the fire at Shrewsbury House, but impressed with the quick action of Richard (the member of staff) who called the fire brigade. Thankfully, we are therefore able to continue enjoying the delights of this lovely community centre.
