We welcomed everyone back for a New Year and a new start.
It looks like people are beginning the year on a positive note. We also discussed some interesting actions from previous years. These included:
- Cycling from London to Brighton
- Raising £1,500 for the Anthony Nolan charity
- Agreeing to appear in GMTV only wearing black underwear
Gyda had us making a snowman. A craft which was very popular with out crafty group.
Gyda also suggested we could make a chart/snake to measure our mood on each day of the month.
Our top quizmaster – Lynne – gave us another tricky quiz. Perhaps it could have been a bit tougher – one person got 11/11 right.
Here is a sample of the questions…
- In January 1877, Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of which country?
- Which company was incorporated in January 1977 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak?
- In January 1959, this TV series premiered staring Clint Eastwood.
A New Year’s joke from Pearl:
Pearl got us to sing and dance with Cliff Richard and Gerry and the Pacemakers.
Everyone was a little worn out after Pearl’s sessions. Gyda managed to calm us down with some thoughts about the New Year.
Gyda speaks to us all:
We were very pleased to hear that several member have vaccination appointments lined-up for the near future.
Stay home, Protect the NHS, Save lives.
