June 2019 – Spring Lane Care Home Summer Open Day

In late June, President Maggie Weatherby and member – and twiddlemuff queen (and charity knitting facilitator), Ching Smith, were invited to Spring Lane Care Home, Muswell Hill to their Summer Open Day to thank families of loved ones, past and present, volunteers, and all

those who have contributed to make the home a vibrant and happy place to live. We were privileged to be invited, following our initial contact in 2018 when we donated three Twiddlemuffs to the unit for those with severe dementia.

It was a lovely summer day for BBQ, drinks and entertainment. We set up our table, with a prime position overlooking the food area and stage. Maggie brought items to promote our WI, along with twiddlemuffs and shawls to promote our Charity Knitting Group.

We chatted to many visitors and residents, including a couple of prospective new members for our WI, and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon: lovely setting, nice sunny day, the residents contented and staff interested!

Before we left, Caroline Elliott, Activities Co-ordinator, suggested that we to do a Master Class with the residents, which we are looking forward to!
