18/09/2016 - Redmayne View
We have had 4 sessions at Redmayne now . Interest and stimulation (and chatter ! ) has been great . We are initially working on a wall art which will represent "Redmayne" . Our lead knitter is Darren who will be running the group with the support of Sandra ( our Manager ) and myself . Darren has crocheted lovely pink & blue flower brooches for all the members and even our Mr Ted mascot has one ! It seems to be an enthusiastic , happy and expanding group . One lady with dementia sat and showed me how to knit which was lovely and rewarding for us both . Again thank you for your help and support with our group - The tenants loved the session when Edna visited and gave them some ideas and inspirations . You are always very welcome at Redmayne . Kind Regards Bernie Bean
