A buzzing Elderdale Centre today. Thursday Club dined on homemade mince and onions, new potatoes and mixed veg, followed by lemon meringue pie and jelly and raspberries (thanks Doris for the jelly). Quiz, bingo and chat made up the rest of the afternoon. Lovely to welcome more new members, Ann, Margaret and John, this week 😊
Huge thanks to our amazing volunteer Becky Clayton and to Margaret for all her help and support xx

Today we cooked as always from scratch and served 30 portions of chicken and root veg stew, new potatoes, sweetcorn and bread and butter, 3veg curries and a full complement of arctic roll and strawberries. More teas and coffees than you can shake a stick at and bingo to chase. Massive thanks to Margaret and Derek for their help getting the food out and clearing up.
Happy birthday to Dot and Mary and thanks to the ever loving Sandra for preparing a birthday tea for everyone in celebration. This bunch rule! Their care for each other, even when they've only just met is so ace. Thanks also to Audrey for her contributions to the bingo prizes.

Today our Butterflies group were making aromatherapy candles. Discovering which scents are energising, which are relaxing and which help with anxiety etc. They then made their own blends and candles. Here's a few of them.

Today was our first Thursday Club since lockdown 😁
Was absolutely brilliant to see so many old friends and meet new ones.
Today's meal was sausage, mash, onion gravy and peas followed by ice cream, strawberries and biscuits. Bingo topped the afternoon off.
Everyone had a right good time 😊🍨

We have been filming in Bolton and Blackburn this week, with Bolton with Blackburn and Darwen Music service for a Commonwealth piece, and at Bolton's Toy Library.
Really lovely to see Children being encouraged to sing and play and be joyful, and parents supported and then helping shape future NHS services.
Been ace to be involved ❀️.

Today's Paintpots and Tots story was Paddington at the Rainbows End. We looked at colours and clouds and sticking... A bit like Paddington's sticky marmalade paws. Ripley from the Tonge group is still poorly so everyone is sending her wishes for feeling better soon. Lovely to see everyone 😊

Alongside our group sessions this week we've been working with Bolton Libraries and Museums Service on two separate projects, 'Lost Words' and 'Class of 37' revisited. Its been fascinating. Filming the museums Natural History Curator Don talking about creatures and plants that, although common to many of us; Weasel, Bramble, Conker, Heron etc, are now not as recognisable to children was enlightening and seeing the children from ESSA academy learning more about their town and its history was both funny and powerful. We have such a great asset for the town in the collections and people that make up our LMS.

'The Greatest Game ever Played' was latest offering. They loved it and one member now wants to take up Golf again 😁
Got really lovely feedback from staff including one woman who hadn't got dressed for over 8 months, dressed and ready first thing each screening. Art and connection are interlinked and powerful.

2021 has been a years of ups and downs for Breightmet Butterflies, many have struggled with various issues and we said goodbye to some as they moved away etc. We also said hello to some new butterflies too :)
Ended the year on a high, with the group winning the community group category in St James Angel Competition. Our butterflies were so made up, they put a lot of work and emotion into their piece, attaching their hopes and words to help others, to the Angel. From everyone at Breightmet Butterflies we hope you have a lovely Christmas and a happy, healthy New year x
