We had another vibrant session at our March Memory Cafe. We created a pretend beach seaside with real sand, shells and candy floss. People seized the chance for a quick photo opportunity at the comical seaside peep board, which had been lovingly painted by some previous visitors to the Memory Cafe.
Stirchley Community Pop-up Choir got everybody involved and treated all to a sing along to some seaside classics like “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside” and ” What shall we do with the drunken sailor” which evoked smiles and joyous faces from the people remembering their old favourite holiday tunes.
We will be getting filmed for the television tomorrow. We cannot as yet disclose why but will be able to soon!
It is vital that we get lots of shares and likes in the meantime, please see the links below to check out our social media channels.
Cotteridge Day Care creating donkeys and other creatures for their collaborative seaside landscape. Using wool, textured materials, wire and paint and other mixed media they got busy making intricate designs for the big wall hanging they had already painted. Next we need to construct the finished piece. Watch this space…
Here are some highlights from our Creative Reminiscence sessions and our Memory Cafe which we run at Stirchley Baths, Onneley Centre, Alzheimer’s Society activity sessions and Cotteridge Day Care Centre.
