August 2018 Extra

Our mid-month cafĂ© took place on August 20th and guests arrived for our usual varied mix of puzzles, entertainment, games and refreshments – not to mention the chance to meet and chat with friends!
The theme of this week’s word-search was ‘Summer Sports’ and there was a chance to peruse the latest copy of ‘Sparkle’ magazine before having a go at the quiz based on its contents.
We welcomed two representatives from Newquay Day Centre who chatted to our visitors and told them about the facilities on offer at the centre which might be of interest.
Richard then introduced the ‘Evergreen Ladies’ Singing Group’ from the St Austell area who were visiting us for the first time.

We were entertained with a selection of well-known songs from the past and, as usual, we needed little encouragement to join in! The highlight had to be their lively accompaniment to one number which included a toy trumpet, descant recorder, tin drum, a horn and best of all a pair of saucepan lids!
The group’s performance was well received and we were delighted when the ladies joined us for refreshments. 
Following a delicious afternoon tea Joan led us in a game of ‘Bird Bingo’ before Richard enlightened us with the answers to the quiz and it was then time to bring the afternoon to a close.

Our next meeting takes place on Monday 3rd September from 2pm – 4pm at Crantock Village Hall. New members, with their carers, are always welcome, and should you require further information please contact Di on 01637 830544 or Joan on 01637 831347 x
