There was not a raindrop on any rose to be seen when we got together with The Sunflower Café, set up so people with dementia and their companions can come together for support and fun experiences, this weekend on a sweltering Saturday afternoon.
After several years of singing together we all considered ourselves part of the furniture and settled into a summery afternoon’s crooning of old and new favourites in and amongst swapping bits of movie trivia. Who knew The Artful Dodger had once been played by Phil Collins?!
Join us at St Mary’s Church, Putney for our next concert.
It’s part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe Festival and absolutely free.
Last Saturday saw us back with our mates at The Sunflower Café for a good old sing-a-long. After all, as winter turns to spring, snowdrops peep, daffodils abound and cherry blossoms bloom how could the odd nightingale not sing in Berkley Square?
The Sunflower Café in Putney and The Jasmine Café in Battersea are monthly gatherings where people with dementia can meet to share experiences and spend time together. More information about both can be found here www.carerswandsworth.org.uk/dementia-cafes/.
For anyone interested in shaking things up, we’ll be hosting a Disco and Pop Sing-A-Long at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 3rd April in St Margaret’s Church Hall. More details can be found here.
