All sorts been going on recently, from Singsong sessions, Quiz and Afternoon Tea at BeGreen, Celebrations for National Carers Week at Winterfield Golf Club, a special ‘Thank You’ Tea for our lovely team during National Volunteers Week (with special thanks to Dunbar Grammar School students, Devon and Emmy for holding a Cake Sale to raise funds for the group. – a lot of cake this past few weeks….!) We also enjoyed a lovely visit to Belhaven Community Garden.
A lovely afternoon had by all at our annual Macmillan fundraiser. Belts were loosened after a sumptuous spread of savouries and cakes, as well as Maggie’s legendary meringues! Just over £300 was raised for Macmillan – huge thanks to everyone in the group, plus friends, for making this such a great afternoon.
Since the end of June 2021 our wonderful group has been meeting weekly in the Bleachingfield Centre, where we have so enjoyed getting back together in person, enjoying each other’s company and friendship. So far, activities enjoyed by all have included a poetry session, chair exercises and a wonderful trip to Lochend Woods with an event lead by the Dunbar Community Woodland Group. Looking forward optimistically but cautiously to several other outdoor and indoor events, ever mindful of the need to take care.
