Photos from Tuesday’s Club Meeting

Another wonderful day at the Old Cricket Ground with some delicious food and wonderful deserts as ever.

We had the puppies over for the kindergarten children of Little Tinkers Nursery, and the members enjoyed playing some classic board games.

The picture of the children at the doors is magical – as they all watched the puppies leave.

Such a beautiful Autumn day at Young @ Heart

We had a wonderful day yesterday at Heathfield Cricket Club with a group of year one and year two children from Dallington Church of England Primary School.

Unfortunately we have not completed the safeguarding paperwork with the school and therefore cannot show pictures of the children. However it was a beautiful day and gives us a perfect opportunity to showcase the beauty of our location.

We enjoyed a fairly full house of guests & children and started work on xmas gifts alongside games and merriment.

 

World War II talk

Young at Heart organised for June Burrows, aged 88, to talk to the children of All Saints and St Richards School about her years growing up during World War II.

June brought along some photos of herself as a child and discussed rationing, bombing, air raid shelters, being evacuated, sweets and the lack of “gadgets”!

The children asked lots of questions and learnt a lot from her talk. What a privilege to hear these stories. We need to embrace the older generation. Their stories are heartfelt and real.

Cup Cake Day

We had  wonderful time on Tuesday focused on the Alzheimer’s Society National Cup Cake day. Alongside some students from Maynards Green Primary School we produced over 160 cupcakes that we took to the school at pickup time. Raising a not insignificant £80.50 for the charity.

Again we were blessed with great weather at the Old Heathfield Cricket Ground and also outside the school in the afternoon.

Next week we invite in Trug and Trowel run by the lovely Laura who is bringing along a selection of chutneys for everyone to sample. Check them out at www.trugandtrowel.co.uk
