From Rosy: “Pilates In Later Life”. Pilates is a low impact form of exercise that is an excellent route to increased fitness for older  adults to build up your stamina, strength and flexibility. The principle objective of pilates is to build abdominal, back and pelvic strength, resulting in body toning and improved posture.

From the Team

From Delia: Coronavirus: Minute’s silence for fallen key workers. There will be a minute’s silence across the UK today at 11:00 BST to remember key workers who have lost their lives to coronavirus.

From Chris B: Waterloo Festival 2020. now online! Transforming Communities. An annual celebration of arts, community and heritage in the artistic heart of London and this year they are bringing their festival online.

Their 2020 theme is Transforming Communities and with a rich line-up of international, London-based and local creatives, we’re making this year’s virtual festival a transformative force for good in this time of crisis.

From Janet: Janet has done another beautiful monologue. East Coker is the second poem of T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. It was started as a way for Eliot to get back into writing poetry and was modelled after Burnt Norton. The title refers to a small community that was directly connected to Eliot’s ancestry and was home to a church that was later to house Eliot’s ashes.

The poem discusses time and disorder within nature that is the result of humanity following only science and not the divine.


From Genia: Those of you who come along to our lunch club on a Tuesday will know of Genia. Amongst Genia’s many talents, she is an accomplished singer. Here is a link video recorded individually and put together. Please do listen, as it is a beautiful piece of music.

Shared by Jean – today’s wisdom and humour:

5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC .

“If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT .

“Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”
