The group learnt some new skills and enjoyed a game of Croquet at the Headland-Buderim Croquet Club last week. This was followed by morning tea and catch up in the club house. Many thanks to Phil and the other cub members who assisted in making this a successful event.
Paul, Russell and Eddie joined some Bromilow clients for a tour of the Queensland Air Museum at Caloundra, which included morning tea and lunch. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and took everyone through the history of air travel in Australia with over 90 warplanes and air craft on display.
Thank you to the Queensland Air Museum for a fascinating day out.
The group began the year with some multicultural dancing lead by Lorraine who holds a weekly class in Buderim as part of the Lively 50 Plus Sunshine Coast Group. After a few beats everyone got their rhythm and away they went and Janette knew the words to most of the songs. Dancing was followed by morning tea at the Bird’s and Beans Cafe in Burnett St Buderim.
It was only a small group today, but that didn’t stop the competitive natures from coming out while playing Bocce on the Beach at Currimundi Lake. With a gorgeous backdrop of the Currimundi Lake meeting the ocean the guys had a few games of Bocce on the grassed area before dipping their toes into the lake, and then enjoyed fish and chips for lunch. Thanks to Zach, Stacey and Ahri for your assistance.
The Sept activity saw the group fishing at the Bli Bli Barra Fishing Park (in the Bli BLi Water Sports Park, 367 David Low Way Bli Bli). Even though only one fish was caught, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Fishing was followed by a picnic lunch and lively conversation. Many thanks to James from the Bli Bli Barra Fishing Park for his generosity and assistance in making this a successful event. Thanks also to Bromilow carer Janine and volunteer Stacey for your valuable support.
Our enthusiastic group was thrilled to be back at the Buderim Bowls Club for more lessons and to catch up with friends. The afternoon was hosted by club ambassadors, Alan and Leona who proved to be excellent teachers and fabulous BBQ chefs.
As the afternoon rolled on we extended our skill level, laughed till it hurt and most of all relished an opportunity to be outdoors with friends.
A lovely day spent at the Ginger Factory with the Adventure with Dementia group on Tuesday, a leisurely walk around the beautiful gardens, browsing through the shops and a fun ride on the train followed by a light lunch with lots of chatting and laughter. Thank you Stacey for the great photos and your support.
“A few light misty showers did not stop the Adventure with Dementia group enjoying a round of mini golf at the Bellingham Maze today. Competitive streaks surfaced as did some hidden golf talents. The game was followed by lunch in the café where the conversation and laughter flowed. A very big thankyou to our volunteer Stacey, Lea from Bromilow Home Support Services and especially the wonderful staff at the Bellingham Maze at 294 Tanawha Tourist Drive Tanawha for assisting with this successful event.”
This month the group tried their hand at Barefoot Bowling at the Buderim Bowls Club. After a sausage sizzle lunch Lee Shimbel from the bowls club gave everyone some pointers on the finer art of lawn bowls. The group was divided into teams and with lots of laughter and healthy competition they put a lot of thought into their strategies to gain that winning shot. Many thanks to the Buderim Bowls Club for assisting us with this activity.
Aprils activity was Heart Beats Drumming at Coolum. The Bromilow carer said how wonderful it was to see everyone smiling and laughing and to see the joy on their faces, especially watching Eddy sing and Paul getting into the drumming to “We Will Rock You”. The group followed up drumming with pizza, coffee and conversation at Coolum Coffee Club.
Many thanks to Heart Beats Drumming at Coolum for allowing us to join your wonderful group on this day.
