They can be used for all kinds of purposes. No one can ever have too many boxes to keep things in!

There was a good turn out this morning for our annual visit to Ten Pin in York and we were glad to see some new faces amongst us.

The winner, though, was Margaret, our longest standing member and we hope that she will enjoy displaying the trophy in her home for the next twelve months. Well done, Margaret!

We’re always happy to welcome guests and Councillor Stuart Martin came along this morning to see what we were up to.

Sue was unable to join us today, but new committee member Heather showed us how to weave with ribbons.

The results, I think you’ll agree, were very attractive.

RAPFEB2016CircledancingCraft

The craft activity today, a very seasonal one organised by Sue, inspired some of us to produce beautiful Valentine’s notebooks.

RAPFEB2016Circledancing

We are indebted to three lovely ladies for this morning’s main activity. Margaret, Maureen and Jackie had us dancing our socks off during our first ever session. Some of us might have looked a little doubtful at first.

RAPFEB2016Circledancing2

We soon got into the swing of it.

The pompons were a big success.

RAPFEB2016Circledancing4

We certainly used up some energy during the session. Thank you again, ladies!

RAPNOV16CARDS

With only a few weeks to go before the big day, it seemed only appropriate to focus on cards for our nearest and dearest, although there was also scope for games and a quiz.

RAPNOV16CARDS2

The tables were awash with paint, glue and glitter and everyone produced several attractive designs.

RAPNOV16BBOCCIA

There was still time for Boccia, though.

RAPNOV16POOL

And, as always, the Pool table proved to be a draw.

RAPNOV16DAVIDINKITCHEN

No one went thirsty either!
