65 Not Out!

Over-65 Holiday Club Week

The Daily Diaries

 Monday, 14th June

The first day of our 2010 Holiday Club and the opportunity to meet up with friends old and new from previous Holiday Club weeks.

We had a great start to the week by being taken by coach to an Auction Sale Room in Liverpool run by auctioneers Cato Crane
where owner (John Bathurst) gave us an interesting talk on the ins and outs of his trade.  This was concluded by his giving valuations
on small items some of our group had taken along with them.

After lunch we were entertained and took part in “Rhythmweave”.  We had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be a most
enjoyable experience when we were led by Mr. Steve Hignett in what I can only describe as a rhythm session, when we were all
given the opportunity to pick up a percussion instrument of our choice from a huge range and then began a lively rhythm session.
 It was a most exhilarating experience enjoyed by all.

Our sincere thanks to Joan Tudhope and Lynne Connolly for all the time, thought and hard work they have put into organising
another lovely Holiday week for us.

Tuesday, 15th June

This morning began gently with crosswords on each table.  The children from Waterloo Primary School arrived at 10.30, along with
their teacher Mr. Howarth, and entertained us a lovely and varied concert.  There were songs, violin duet, solos, and a trumpet player. 
There was a lot of talent among the children and it was good to see them enjoying their music making.  They were a credit to their school.

In the afternoon David Clark, a well known lecturer and writer of books on fuchsias gave us an entertaining and very interesting talk
 on the subject.  He also showed us some wonderful slides of so many different varieties of the plant.  We learned about how he grows,
nurtures and names these wonderful flowers.
