Bookswap, London Zoo, curry and a nordic walk… February Saturday Club!


Forget the February blues, this month’s Saturday Club was jam-packed with food, activities and special guests. Here’s what went down…

The kitchen team was led by Chanda and Kanchan along with a fab troupe of volunteers who chopped, cleaned and served brilliantly as usual. On the menu was homemade salsa, garlic bread and tortilla chips for start. A glorious potato curry and rice for main was followed by divine fresh fruit salad, which used produce provided by food redistribution charity the Felix Project.

Gavin held an invigorating walk pre-Saturday Club, which was really popular. Worked up everyone’s appetite for lunch! Everyone enjoyed the exercise equipment in Paddington Rec…

Following the success of the clothes swap last year, we held a book-swap so everyone could grab a new read on the cheap and save the trees at the same time! New volunteers Chaine and Colin, plus the brilliant Bobbie-Rose, Gavin’s daughter, looked after the stall.

Nordic Walking tutor, Martin, did a demonstration taster of Nordic Walking to advertise the new weekly sessions starting from March 14th. Tuesdays 2-3pm, £1 a session, if you’re interested!

Lucia and her colleague came from London Zoo to tell us all about the restoration project of the Snowden Aviary on the Regents canal (a listed structure). We hope to take a group down in the near future for a tour. They brought a lion skull!

Meanwhile, Prabhat’s sewing group were selling their wares. The aprons were really popular and they took 10 new orders for more!

Here’s our former, much-loved Healthy Bones fitness tutor Nikki, who popped by for a visit.


All this in one day, phew! And not to mention the usual raffle – thanks to Debbie and Gavin for calling, plus everyone who donated prizes. This includes the Felix project who gave us some wonderful multi-coloured roses. We’d also like to say a big thank you to Karin for always bringing along delicious cakes. Her chocolate-covered macaroons are exceptional! Thanks to May for her great photography skills. Finally we’d like to thank everyone who helped out with clearing away chairs and cleaning the hall. We really appreciate it.

Until next month folks 🙂 Please book if you’d like to attend (March 18th) by calling 07447 932 564 or 020 7624 8378 or popping by reception.
