Social Comms – Activities

Posted 8th July 2019

The social comms group took to the cricket field today as part of their planned programme. Members sourced equipment and organised games of boules and French cricket. They quickly mastered the bumpy terrain and windy conditions to have a fun and competitive morning.

Kingston Group Art Session

Posted 8th July 2019
Artist Alison Carlier delivered a wonderful session on leaf printing to eight members of the Kingston morning group yesterday. The members first produced their own detailed sketches of the yew and beech branches and then Alison showed them how to produce an imprint of the branch and leaves by cutting marks onto polystyrene boards. The members then used small rollers to cover their boards with paint before applying paper on top. Once the paper was removed, their prints were revealed and the results were very impressive!

Brooklands June 2019

Posted 8th July 2019
Our summer outing to Brooklands began with a Jump Start talk, describing the history of the Museum covering motor sport & also aviation. 45 Members, relatives and volunteers enjoyed a fantastic interactive and social day including sitting in a Harrier and joining the Concorde experience. “There is something here for everyone” & “I am definitely coming back with my husband” were just two enthusiastic comments heard on the day.

Kingston Volunteers Awarded

Posted 25th June 2019
We are so proud of our volunteers Jo, Roberta and Sue, who after a nomination from us, were honoured with a 2019 Volunteering Kingston award. The award recognises volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution and the certificates were presented at the recent Kingston Volunteers Fair.
Volunteer Jo said…“I was so touched by the nomination for the volunteers’ award from Volunteering Kingston. I am sure that none of us would give our time freely if it wasn’t such a hugely rewarding charity and if we didn’t personally get such a lot from contributing ourselves. One can’t help but feel inspired by the members’ efforts to improve their communication and return to everyday socialisation – they certainly enjoy sharing a joke!”
