Pupils from St Ivo School visited St Ives Day Care Centre on Wednesday 16th December, where they entertained the elderly members to a most enjoyable programme of Christmas songs. The piano accompaniment was by music teacher Miss Barnes and the solo singer with such a lovely voice was Sissy Ford. Afterwards the young people joined the members in games and conversation which was very much appreciated and enjoyed by all. A great mix of the old and the young! Our greatful thanks for a lovely afternoon in the run up to Christmas.
- On 5th October members went out to lunch at the Crown in Earith and on 12th October Wiltshire Farm Foods visited the Centre to give a demonstration and provide some samples of their reday made meals (the samples of choclate eclaires and lemon drizzle cake went down particularly well)!
- The Centre also are very grateful to Mrs M Wallis for the donation of a folding wheelchair for use by the members!
- There were also 6 new members and 2 new volunteers in October (one voluteering on a Monday and another volunteering on a Tuesday)! If you would like more information on voluteering see the voluteering opportunities page or to volunteer on any weekday please contact the Day Centre Manager.
- The knitters on a Wednesday have been busy making “Twiddle Muffs”, a handwarmer which are great for folks with dementia. The idea came from Dementia Friends and the Centre will be donating some to Dementia Freinds as well as to a number of Local Care Homes.
