Christmas Wreath Making - December 2023

In order to get into the Christmas mood we made some beautiful Christmas wreaths to hang on our doors. Some mulled wine encouraged our creative juices.

60's Disco - September 2023

In September the New Experience Group arranged a 60s disco which was a great success.  Several people dressed up in 50s, 60s and 70s gear, the dancefloor was packed and everyone had a great time.

Disc Golf - August 2023

The New Experience Group tried out disc golf in August.  It scores like golf, but instead of hitting a ball into a hole you throw a disc (like a frisbee) into a cage.  Congratulations to Rob and Siddharth for their fantastic performance.

Mudlarking - August 2023

In August we had a fine day to explore the Thames river bank looking for remnants of centuries past.  We found pottery, clay pipe stems and glass bottle shards.

Falconry - June 2023

On a beautiful day in June over 20 members took part in a falconry experience. We learnt a lot about different birds and were all able to hold birds including a kestrel, an owl and a falcon. The birds also flew from their keeper to our outstretched arms.

Canal trip - May 2023

12 members went on a day trip on the Grand Union canal.  We helped opening locks and steering and stopped at a pub for lunch.

Brush Calligraphy - April 2023

Over 30 members attended 2 workshops showing us how to create beautiful cards and messages using brush calligraphy.

Pottery - February 2023
