Today Diny one of our carers brought a lot of jewellery she has been making over a number of years. She sold a number of pieces to the members and donated the proceeds to our charity – Dementia Club UK. I am very grateful to Diny and thank her very much.

Diny said it takes her about 2 evenings to make a piece, she enjoys making them and she believes that the secret of living longer is to keep your mind active by having a hobby you enjoy. Diny will be 90 years young on the 30th of this month. Her mother lived to 102.

We had 4 volunteers from Barnet Council Staff who were rushed off their feet as we were very busy today. My thanks to them as I don’t think I could have managed today without their help.

Tija our new dance exercise instructor gave us some Spanish dance movements. She explained the 2 ways to clap, the graceful wrist and finger movements and tapping feet.
