You may recognise the Christmas tree in the picture, it was the one that was knit or crocheted by many of the local ladies as an inclusion project for last year. And where is it now? It is in its original squares again BUT these are also being now transformed into knee blankets that will be presented to the Hospice. While it has been another very strange year for everyone, we have been able to join each other in our various classes! We celebrate that this has been possible. We also hope that this will continue into the new year and that we will be able to restart some of our missing classes too. We have certainly missed our music classes and not being able to perform our Christmas offering.In November we had a visit from five other Community Centres during Inclusion Week. The representatives joined us for some of our classes with a view to starting a programme like AAfA in their centres. We offered Sit and Get fit, Stronger for Longer and Meditation to them and finished off with lunch from Pea and Pod. And speaking of Pea and Pod, we are really pleased to have the café open and it is always a good finish to a class to go in and have a cuppa and a chat afterwards. Our AGM will be in January and it is your opportunity to get involved. Keep a lookout for the date for that and also for registering for our next session of classes. If you would like to take a more involved role in helping with the actual running of Active Age for All, we would love to hear from you and while you don’t need any particular skills, it would be great to see offers from you if you have administration, accounts or website experience. Just leave a message on the AAfA phone 086 8806808 and leave your name and phone number.If you are new to the area or new to retirement – you just need to be 55+ - you can call in to DPCC and collect an AAfA New Member form and fill it out and leave it for us, or email us at the address above and we email a form out to you. We can make contact and will do our best to include you in classes as soon as possible.
