November Flower Power

The latest monthly BDC online singalong, led by hosts Martyn & Josephine Paddon, was based on a “RAINBOW” theme.   Most of the songs featured references to rain and, of course, rainbows and were originally sung by  Carole King, Buddy Holly, The Cascades, Johnny Ray, Gene Kelly, Dinah Washington, B.J. Thomas and Judy Garland.  Participants displayed on screen just about every colour of the rainbow, together with umbrellas, crocheted knitwear, cuddly toys,  necklaces, headbands, hats, braces, bowties, balls, wings, wigs, shirts, scarves, gloves and garlands as you can see from pictures below.           

The next scheduled Zoom Meeting is: The BDC “FLOWER POWER” Zoom Singalong on FRIDAY 5th November 2021 at 2pm. Please note the change to FRIDAYS from now on. Our theme this time is FLOWER POWER and again, the dress code can be ANYTHING YOU LIKE

Picture the scene: 1969, the time when hippies congregated at festivals like Woodstock or headed to San Francisco, all decked out in colourful floral shirts, vests, flared trousers, headbands, scarves, chains, lockets, bangles, bracelets, anklets, sunglasses, sandals, fringed waistcoats, peace logos, CND badges, mini dresses with long boots, complete with guitars and any handy tambourines. Oh!  And be sure to wear flowers in your hair!

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: or by phone on 01803 851438.
