September 2019 Extra

Some of our volunteers had a busy time in between our two September cafes!  The main and much anticipated event of this month in Crantock is always the ‘Bale Push’ when hundreds of people descend on the village to watch teams of 4 push huge round bales of hay around the village at break-neck speed.  As usual, the Memory Cafe was given a table to promote our twice-monthly gatherings and in addition to talking to interested visitors and locals about the cafe we were able to raise some funds by running a ‘lucky dip’ for passing children!
It was a great evening, and at our cafe on the following Monday we were delighted to welcome a new visitor who had learnt about us at the Bale Push.
At our mid-month cafe we welcomed back Adrian Davis and his guitar, who provided a selection of well-known songs which we sang along to and accompanied on our selection of percussion instruments.

As usual there were copies of our Bowgie-sponsored ‘Sparkle’ reminiscence magazine to browse, and an accompanying quiz devised by Richard. Today’s wordsearch had an autumnal theme and a new challenge for those of us with a more mathematically-orientated brain was a sudoku puzzle to tackle.
With delicious refreshments to enjoy mid-afternoon it was the usual friendly and entertaining session and soon it was time for Richard to solve the mysteries of the quiz before we packed away with many thanks given to our visiting troubadour!
We meet up again on 7th and 21st October at Crantock Village Hall from 2pm – 4pm. New members with their carers are always welcome, and should you require further information please contact Di on 01637 830544, Joan on 01637 831347 or visit our website at
