December 2019 Extra

Christmas was approaching fast when we opened the doors for our second December cafe, so there was nothing for it but to have a bit of a party!  The tables were looking festive with sparkling decorations and a beautiful wall hanging made by one of our wonderful volunteers set off a display of trees, candles and Christmas books. The room was soon buzzing with friendly chatter and on the tables there were word puzzles and copies of the ‘Sparkle’ reminiscence magazine, sponsored by the Bowgie Inn,  to look through. With seasonal music gently playing in the background the room soon had a real Christmas atmosphere!

 David then introduced Nigel Skews from Falmouth who had come along to entertain us for the first part of the afternoon. Nigel’s smiling face and great voice soon had everyone singing along to a selection of popular songs and well known Christmas carols which we all enjoyed.
As the performance drew to a close we could see that our refreshments team, together with the wonderful local bakers who provide us with cakes and savouries had laid out a festive feast for everyone to enjoy! There was time to pull a cracker, laugh at the corny jokes inside and tuck in to a delicious spread and, of course a much needed cuppa!
 After an extended tea everyone was delighted to receive a small gift and card from the Memory Cafe team. As the afternoon drew to a close, David thanked our visiting musician and merry seasonal wishes were exchanged before everyone set off for home, looking forward to the first memory cafe of 2020 on January 6th.
As we begin our seventh year we would like to say a big ‘thankyou’ to all our friends and supporters and we wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. New guests are always welcome and should you need more information ring David on 01637 830617, Di on 01637 830544 or visit our website:
