A great session had by all at Young at Heart yesterday – bunting and cake making alongside a hearty meal as the view slowly adds on the gentle colours of Autumn
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.
We had a great time at Young at Heart this week making the most of the wonderful weather. Outdoor activities for both generations “teamwork”!
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
We look forward to you joining us this week for our cupcake day of baking and some more time with the year six students. The weather is looking perfect for this week and the menu below will get you excited
We have some great shots from last week below – a great day enjoyed by all.
So into our third week and we had a lovely time on Tuesday – a fine platter of food and time to re-pot the sunflowers planted from seed on our first week
We had a wonderful time at our official launch day for Young at Heart this Tuesday at the Heathfield Cricket Club
The sun was on our side and the views were amazing across to the South Downs.
Activities on the day included Peppermint cream making, an hour+ with some students from Old Heathfield Primary School, planting sunflowers and enjoying each others company.
We had a drop in from a local Wealdon councillor showing his support for the community club & ended the day with some songs backed by our resident squeezebox player.
We are very excited ahead of our formal launch day on Tuesday 8th May.
Food’s is one of the areas where we think we will bring a smile to your face, and to that end a rough idea of our launch menu is below.
Side of Salmon
Cheese, leek & mushroom quiche
Roast Vegetable Couscous with feta
Salad with new potatoes
Fruit Pavlova & Apple Cake
Make sure you bring an empty stomach and help us devour these delights.
We are pleased to be announcing our opening day on Tuesday 8th May @ 10.00am.
