Sport Relief 2014

It took us a long time to get out of the door as we wrapped up warmly to face the stiff breeze but the sunshine made it a pleasant walk into town and then down the path to the river and Goggs mill. Ellen met her old friend walking his dog who was born in the same year as her 81 years ago. We'd met them 2 years ago more or less in the same spot.

We didn't spend too long feeding the ducks as the wind certainly was keen so we carried on to The Bell at Hempton. It's not exactly wheelchair friendly so most of us sat outside and swapped our usual cold drinks for teas and coffees which fortified us for the way back.

Kaleigh had brought her very sweet puppy along who was grateful to snuggle up to Enid.

A very big thanks to everyone who came and helped and made it such a success.

Pancake Day

Pancake Day was the usual fun. First making the mixture and then cooking the pancakes. The most fun of course was trying to toss them and we had lots of successes  but the odd disaster too! Relief chef Dominic was in the kitchen and made some very professional ones for lunch.

Movement to Music

Another good session with Heather. For some reason we got on to touching our toes and it is surprising how good some people are at it.

Ellen, Mary C 'golfing', Ada and Bill C look on

Arts and Crafts

Vicky had a good crowd for Arts and Crafts. It's getting more popular every week.

Chat Club goes travelling

Donna got her maps out, ranging from the local Ordanance Survey to a World Map. This gave plenty of scope for a chat which ranged from the modes of transport people had used, (from tandems to aeroplanes), to holidays, to where people had been, lived and worked.

The maps hanging on the wall gave the appearance of a school room.
