We are really proud to have been working with the South East London MIND’s Young Onset Dementia Activitists – the YODAs! – for the last couple of years. They have helped out at our Open Day, with gardening on site and used our Clubhouse for their meetings.
This amazing bunch of people have also released a
film about the impact of young onset dementia. You can learn more about them and the launch of the film here: https://selmind.org.uk/news/2023/12/yoda-strikes-back/
We had a wonderful and festive wreath making workshop today. Participants made wreaths using willow and vegetation harvested on site.
They also enjoyed hot food and homemade cakes baked by our members.
A wonderful way to start the festive season!
We had a great turnout for our annual bonfire night party on Saturday 4th November.
Our members, family and friends joined us for a wonderful evening. There wre craft activities for children – including the lanterns they made to help light the way to the amazing firework display.
We had a fabulous bonfire and were able to cook Polish sausages on the embers.
There was also sausages (from Murray’s butchers in Penge), pumpkin soup, baked potatoes and loads of home made cakes to eat in our Clubhouse.
The Committee would like to thank everybody who donated fireworks, baked cakes and helped to set up and run the event.
