BDC Groups and Activities Update

BDC Groups and Activities

We are open to give help, support, advice and much needed socialisation in our groups and activities.

Nothing is as it was though, so some groups have a different time, day or room, or all of those and none are as large as they were…… for now. And not all groups are taking place, until we can safely use all our rooms.

Due to social distancing, in order to ensure people feel safe in our groups, we will not have a café, for now. Groups now have extended times but we still need to allow time to clean and sanitise. People are requested to sanitise on entry. Group fees are £2.50. Also, we will need either proof of vaccinations or proof of negative test in order to attend groups.

The group times and days will be:

Monday Once a month Lunch club / Film Club (times and a date to start to be confirmed)
Tuesday Knit & Natter 10:00am – 12:00pm
Support 1:30pm – 3:30pm
Bingo 1:30pm – 3.30pm
Wednesday Knit Together 10:00am – 12:00pm
Ladies Group 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Thursday Colour & Chat 10:00am – 12:00pm

Please note no walking group for now
Friday Bridge 10:00am – 12:00pm

After Sixties it’s a Jubilee Singalong

Brixham Does Care to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee LIVE and online.

SONGS from THE SIXTIES  were sung at the latest BRIXHAM DOES CARE online Singalong [See picture below].  Those originally recorded by Sam Cooke, Danny Williams, Elvis Presley, Bobby Vee, Cliff Richard, Bobby Darin, The Animals, The Beatles, The Righteous Brothers, The Spencer Davis Group, Procol Harum, Engelbert Humperdinck, Otis Redding, The Hollies and The Archies tested our vocal chords to the limits.   Flower decorated bags, hats, headbands, scarves and waistcoats were on show, together with colourful shirts, tops, wraps, beads, beach boy baseball caps, a white fedora and a wonderful Heinkel bubble car.   The community charity plans to celebrate the 70 years reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by holding a Platinum Jubilee fish and chips lunch, followed by a Singalong comprising songs representing the soundtrack of the record breaking time spent on the throne. Tea, coffee and cake will be served in the interval, plus a raffle. This event takes place on Monday 30th May 2022 at 12.15pm in the Brixham Town Hall Function Room.  Details from the BDC Office next door, 01803 857727.

The next scheduled online Singalong is on FRIDAY 10th June  2022 at 2pm. The theme will be “PLATINUM JUBILEE”   The dress code can be ANYTHING YOU LIKE. Expect to see loads of Union Flags, red, white and blue bunting…and a crown or two! Of course, fancy dress is not obligatory.   It just adds to the fun.   Taking part is the most important thing.   If you would like details of how to join a Zoom Meeting, contact Martyn Paddon via email: violetsrest@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 01803 851438

After Easter Parade It’s Back to the Sixties

Brixham Does Care celebrates Easter then heads back to the Sixties

BRIXHAM DOES CARE this year managed to celebrate Easter with TWO singalongs, one online and the other LIVE in the Town Hall Function Room (pictures below).  There was a good variety of Easter Bonnets being worn, some decorated with daffodils and other spring flowers, , others with Easter eggs and tiny chicks, and one depicting the Mad Hatter. Bunny ears were popular and plenty of Easter cards could be seen, together with crosses, butterflies and a dove. Songs sung were originally recorded by Slim Whitman, Frankie Vaughan, The Monkees, Lawrence Welk, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Rod Stewart, Elvis Presley, Roger Miller, Andy Williams, Glen Campbell, Roy Orbison and The Three Degrees.

The next scheduled online Singalong is on FRIDAY 6th May 2022 at 2pm.
The theme will be THE SIXTIES.   The dress code can be ANYTHING YOU LIKE.
Look out for some weird fashion creations, fantastic hairstyles and mini skirts – and that’s just the men! 
Of course, fancy dress is not obligatory.   It just adds to the fun.   Taking part is the most important thing.   If you would like details of how to join a Zoom Meeting, contact Martyn Paddon via email: violetsrest@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 01803 851438.
