Hi,
Has anyone tried the actvities 2 go magazine ? I have heard about this but know very little. It would be helpful if someone can let me know how much it costs for the magazine and is it worth while.

Thank you

ANZAC Day Service

I think this is a wonderful idea, but i have a question if anyone can help.
Is it appropriate to run Anzac Day on April 24th as our community centre is only open on Wednesday and Thursday. Anzac Day is on a Thursday this year and our centre does not open on public holidays.
What is the general opinon of most people. I am not sure if I should run it, don't want to be politically incorrect.
Thanks Debbie

Crochet and Knitting Club

This is a wonderful idea. At our Day Centre last year we knitted squares and made them into blankets for the animal welfare league and donated them. Also old blankets and towels were cut into smaller sizes so they could be used as towels to wash the shelter animals. we visited the centre with our clients and saw how the shelter was run and ofcourse the animals who would benenfit from the blankets in winter.
Now is the time to knit those squares ready for winter if any body else might be interested in doing the some sort of thing.

Hi, Can any one who is using a WII for activities let me know what they think of their residents using it.
Iam thinking of purchasing one from Ebay and would like to know if there are any quizzes or mental stimulation games that are worth considering.I have looked at WII sports and this would be ok.

thank you for help

Pool / Snooker outing and Pub Lunch

yes, a wonderful idea. I run a community group and have a dedicated mens day where we visit local atractions, but always end up at the pub...funny that!!! men enjoy the company of other men and the interaction is so different to a ladies day.
