The third session of the well-received Sporting Memories sessions was held at St Helen’s on Monday 24th February. Despite poor weather, a large attendance and some more new faces enjoyed an engaging and often hilarious get together in the St Helen’s Lounge.
The initiative, which helps to get people with dementia, depression, loneliness or other issues along with their carers, back into the community has gone from strength to strength. Under the guidance of Ospreys Health and Well being Co-Ordinator Helen John, the easy-going and informal get-togethers have proved very popular and seen familiar faces return and new ones pop along to join in.
Despite Wales losing to France at the weekend, a display of French international jerseys from matches played at St Helen’s aroused much interest and sparked a few conversations about crowd control when 50,000 are in the ground!
New games and quizzes have been devised since the last session and there was a competitive edge as the teams vied for top spot, tea and Welsh cakes oiling the grey matter admirably.
Indoor curling proved a winner again and we look forward to the next get together at St Helen’s on Monday 9th March.
If you think you would enjoy this and would like to make new friends and join in the laughter and general good atmosphere, come along to the club on 9th March: 11am to 1pm – disabled access in place.
