Pictured left and below are some of our ace bowlers from the South Normanton Group who meet each month at the Genesis Centre in Alfreton for a bite to eat and a game of Ten-pin Bowling.
“It’s good to come here and be with other people. We have a laugh and a chat – that’s what life is all about!” – Kath
Chloe also organises the outings and activities for our Shirebrook Group who meet each month. In September the Group went to the Hardwick Inn (near Hardwick Hall) for a meal.
“It’s lovely to get out of the house – I’ve met someone I used to know from my dancing days here! I wouldn’t have done that if I was sitting at home on my own!” – Freda.
The Group also celebrated Morris’s birthday (pictured on the right, with his wife Winnie) by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and giving 3 cheers!
Barlow Well Dressing – Donation
A big thank you goes out to the kind donation of £100.00 sent to us from the Barlow Village Well-Dressing group. The completed Barlow Well Dressing is pictured on the left – the design is taken from a drawing by M Groves and the well was dressed by a team of local people.
Thank you to the Group in choosing Sight Support Derbyshire as one of their named charities and for the donation, which will go towards helping local people with a visual impairment, with services and support.
Until next time…….
