Jamie Steen- 27th September 2022

Jamie came with another selection of unusual outfits that managed to fit his choice of hits from the 50s and 60s.

He managed his quick changes, and had everyone singing, dancing and joining-in.

Gyda looked after the craft room and kept everyone busy.

Dot and Jen were busy looking after the quizzes, puzzles and colouring.

Dancing is always optional, but always popular.

Tony will entertain us at our next session.

The Reflections Friendship Group is next at Shrewsbury House on 11th October at 1pm.

Tom Carradine – 13th September 2022

A new performer today -the delightful Mr C.

Tom got (nearly) everyone up dancing and singing to songs old and not quite so old. The Abba medley went down well, as did the Beatles. There was also the promised knees-up.

A busy dance floor – as ever.

Earlier, David’s craft table was popular – as was Gyda’s.

Carmen came from The Greenwich Carers Centre to offers confidential advice to our members. The Centre has lots of useful information here.

Julian Garman – 30th August 2022

Janet was unwell and could not attend, but Julian blew up a storm.

The tunes were varied and the audience sang and danced along.

David’s creative corner went well. Note the programme for the Plumstead Artists Open Studios 2022 – you can read more here.

The “Library” offered plenty of space for dancing to Julian’s tunes.

Gary came from The Greenwich Carers Centre to offers confidential advice to our members. The Centre has lots of useful information here.

Tony Martin – 16th August 2022

Tony entertained a record post Covid turnout.

We were treated to a selection of tunes from the 50s/60s/70s.

You can hear some more of Tony’s best tunes here.

Marc was with us to run the archery.

The colouring and quizzes filled the first hour.

We were very pleased so many people were able to dance in the cooler conditions.

Carmen came from The Greenwich Carers Centre to offers confidential advice to our members. The Centre has lots of useful information here.

Vikki Melrose – 2nd August 2022

Another powerhouse of a performance from one of our favourite singers.

We were pleased to be back after missing our last date due to a burst water main cutting off the water supply to Shrewsbury House.

We had lots of new members today and they all liked to sing or dance or both.

Vikki gave us some very danceable tunes. The Abba section was particularly popular. This bit involved a Love Train.

Tony will be back with us next time.

Reflections 6th birthday – 5th July 2022

Jamie Steen

We welcomed Jamie to celebrate Reflections sixth birthday with his country music show.

Group members enjoyed warming up with some puzzles and a chat.

The dancing was fun, as ever.

Janet was very happy to have two new volunteers today, Tony (who stepped in at the last minute) and Debs (who has already spent a lot of time with the group in a carer’s role). We look forward to seeing more of both of them in the coming months.

The Reflections Friendship Group is next at Shrewsbury House on 19th July at 1pm.

Julian will be with us next time.

Tony Martin – 21st June 2022

The first day of summer and we had a bright and sunny performance from Tony.

Tony succeeded in getting most of us (not me) dancing and singing along. He even had a new couple dancing, when they had never danced together before!

You can hear more of Tony’s best tunes here.

Mary encouraged our puzzlers to work their way through word-searches and other brain teasers.

Janice (from the Carers Centre) was back with us giving advice to members.

David’s poems – David has recorded four more personal poems for Reflections. You may find them on his page.

The Reflections Friendship Group is next at Shrewsbury House on 5th July at 1pm. Numbers will continue to be limited for the foreseeable future, to ensure everyone has plenty of space, and many safety measures will continue to remain in place.

Jamie will be back with us next time.

Vikki Melrose – 7th June 2022

We celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with some scones, a cuppa and Vikki.

Another splendid performance from one of our favourite singers.

The dancers soon took to the floor, with just a little encouragement from Vikki.

Tony will be performing another sing-a-long when the Reflections Friendship Group next meet at Shrewsbury House on 21st June at 1pm.

Julian- 24th May 2022

An hour of non-stop poptastic tunes.

Julian was asked for his business card before he had even sung a note! As usual he used backing tracks to frame his singing and keyboard skills. His trumpet playing added extra punch to a couple of songs. 

Julian gave us a fun packed, dance and sing-a-long performance.

The puzzlers became very involved with the latest word-searches. Eyes were locked on the grids until all the hidden words were found. Then the next challenge was taken on.

As the dancing became more intense, the windows and doors were opened. People took recovery breaks before they returned to the dance floor. Julian was non-stop party-power.

Vikki will be entertaining us next time when we will be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.

Jamie Steen- 10th May 2022

It was the 1950s all over again…

Jamie managed another 12 costume changes – each of which complemented the songs.

Gyda’s crafters were being creative, as usual.

We all liked to dance to the 50s tunes.

Julian is with us at our next session. You can get a flavour of the man on his YouTube site. Here is a sample:
