May 2017

Nature was all around us for our first cafe in May!  Upon arrival, there was the usual friendly chatter, and on the tables among the display of natural objects including pine cones, shells and bird nests, there was a ‘Natural World’ word-search to have a go at.  Hannah then took us on a ‘virtual nature walk’ which, with the aid of Liz Burt’s wonderful photographs, took us on a trail from Penpol around to Polly Joke, looking at the beautiful views, flora, fauna and birdlife along the way.

Di then gave us a new challenge: with the aid of a CD everyone listened and tried to identify sounds of familiar animals, birds and insects. Some were more challenging than others but it certainly caused much amusement around the cafe tables!

Before tea there was a cryptic bird quiz for us to solve, with the help of friends, and after our indispensible tea ladies had cleared up we had a display of colourful boards showing photos of flowers, herbs and Cornish gardens for us to identify and chat about.

As always, it was a lively and entertaining afternoon and everyone left feeling that summer was well and truly on the way!  Thanks were given to Di and Hannah, and to be passed on to Liz for letting us share in seeing her impressive range of photographs.

We are always pleased to welcome new members, with their carers, at our Memory Cafe and should you need further information ring Di on 01637 830544 or Joan on 01637 831347. Our next meetings will be held at Crantock Village Hall on Monday 22nd May and Monday 5th June from 2pm – 4pm.
