A Forbury Wedding! drama session with Toni

We thoroughly enjoyed another wonderful drama session today…
Toni took us to Church.  Love poems, a solo singing performance from Joan, rose scented petals …. and before we knew it we had a happy couple waiting to be married!.. new Vicar David overcame his qualms and successfully tied the knot for Pat W and Tony.  The wedding vows were taken despite unruly bridemaids and dissent!  After the service Eric led a formal toasting of the  newlyweds.  We sampled  ‘Champagne’ and heart shaped lemon and orange biscuits handmade the day before by Rita P and The Vicar.

Kites and Hot Air Balloons..

Drama session with Toni 17/3/15

Toni took us all on a draughty adventure with kite flying, poetry and hot air balloon games.  We became a collection of characters, some good, some bad and some most unusual, and we negotiated the next flight.

Friday 13th …a little bit of Comic Relief

Rita P, David, Graham, Ann H and Tony, don comic relief glasses and raise a smile of two. Glasses courtesy of the pupils from Leominster Primary School who spent the afternoon with us. We are ready to begin a large canvas mural….a creative collaboration between the pupils and Forbury residents, based on the theme of ‘Clothing’.CR1CR3CR4IMG_9506

Paddy (1) Betty

Eric, Paddy and Betty work on large canvas pictures….so did Lucy, Rita P. Joan, Hilda, Colleen and David (but my camera stopped before I could carry on taking pictures – the battery needed re-charging, whoops). We are showing some of the residents paintings in May at the Courtyard during the ‘Remember Me‘ celebration, in an exhibition we have titled Travelling By Moonlight. We shall tell you more when we get closer to the exhibition.
