November 2019 Extra

For their second November opening, visitors to the Memory Cafe welcomed back the well-known environmentalist, photographer and author David Chapman.  Dressed in one of his famous woolly jumpers David’s presentation was based around his latest book ‘Where to Watch Wildlife in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’. David’s photographs focussed on some of the many rare flora and fauna to be found in our beautiful county, and some of the changes he has been aware of over the last twelve years – for better and for worse! If David’s wonderful slide-show and talk are anything to go by, this volume, which is hot off the press, will be a fascinating read and make an excellent Christmas present for anyone with an interest in the wonderful Cornish sea and landscape.
Following a delicious tea served by our friendly refreshments’  volunteers there was a chance to peruse a selection of David’s publications, or to have a look at an amazing range of board and table games on our ‘Games are Fun!’ display.  In addition to playing cards, draughts, ludo and dominoes, there were such familiar games as ‘Snakes and Ladders’, Happy Families, Snap, Connect 4 and Fishing.

As tea-time drew to a close there was a chance to choose a game and have a go, or time to have a chat with friends around the table.
After a most interesting and entertaining afternoon we look forward to meeting up again on December 2nd 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 or David on 01637 830617.
