October 2019 Extra

Autumn was in the air as visitors arrived for our second October cafe.  Our guests were greeted by an atmospheric display of seasonal colours in leaves, nuts, berries and fruits, along with lovely books, illustrations and features such as corn dollies and pumpkins to re-awaken memories of Autumn past and present – there was even a squirrel and a hedgehog!

Our entertainers for the afternoon were the 'Kelsey Singers', and puzzles on the tables reflected both aspects of our afternoon with a word grid based around the letters of ‘harvest’ and a wordsearch using words from some of the Kelsey Singers’ songs! David welcomed the singers and we were soon enjoying a wide range of songs, old and new, interspersed with some amusing jokes and Cornish readings. A delightful piano solo and a tuneful rendition by one of the gentlemen in the choir added to a very enjoyable performance. The choir gave us plenty of opportunities to join in with familiar songs and the challenge to count the number of films included in an amusing number called ‘Usherette Blues’ (there were 25!).
A break for afternoon tea gave everyone the chance to stretch their legs, chat, complete the puzzles and have a closer look at the display, before it was ‘eyes down’ for a traditional game of bingo.  Altogether it was a very relaxed and enjoyable afternoon which put smiles on everyone’s faces.
We look forward to meeting up again in two weeks times on November 4th 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, David on 01637 830617 or visit our website at crantockmemorycafe.org.uk
