We Had A Fabulous Time

oasisOASIS, the holiday at home for seniors, met again on 28, 29 and 30 July.  About 50 people came this year and it was great fun.  We had feature talks and quizzes, and each day ended with a tasty lunch.  Activities included solving mysteries a la Sherlock Holmes, singing, painting, craft making (some fine wooden boxes), poetry, meditating, chairobics, enjoying the Sayers’ model railway in their back garden – and a highlight:  baking scones in the Wellhouse Meadow  Bakery.
