Last Thursday coffee morning (17-04-19) was very busy. Not only did nurse Eileen turn up to speak with anyone who had some concerns , but we also had visits from two other colleagues who were both looking for older participants to take part in their different projects.

Eduardo Fe , a researcher from The University of Manchester is running a project looking at decision making in strategic situations. He found about 20 people interested in taking part in a session on Thursday 16th May starting at 10, when participants will be playing some incentivised games on tablets. …

Our second visitors, Jolene Sheehan and Patrick Wright are hoping to run a creative writing project over four Saturdays in August, bringing together younger writers with local older residents to create “Stories of our Lives” a reflection of memories and experiences , captured through the different writing styles of the authors. They have already got a good group of interested people together to share their stories but still need to encourage more young writers to come and join the project …so if anyone reads this and is interested please get in touch

Finally the morning rounded off with some singing from member  Jenni Woolfe who got people joining in with ‘some enchanted evening’, ‘when will I see you again’ and old favourite ‘what are you doing Sunday baby’

We encourage anyone to come and join us on a Thursday morning 10-11.30am .  Next week our Hear to help colleagues will be with us checking hearing Aids, moulds, and giving out batteries. Just turn up and have a coffee whilst you wait.
