Volunteer Drivers meet Local MP and other dignataries.

Thanking us for coming

It was the 25 anniversary of Dial A Ride.

Transport is provided by volunteer drivers using their own vehicles and is accessible to those who are elderly or disabled. Visits to friends or relatives, events, hospital or doctors appointments and shopping etc.

The drivers have a get together for a cream tea every year but this was special with a visit from our local MP and some of the local council members.

These are cast metal models that I make, paint, display and sell at craft fayres.

These are unpainted. The metal is an alloy that melts at about 300degC. The molds come from Prince August in Ireland. I first spray them in white then paint the colors from light to dark. Finally I clear varnish them.


Monday afternoon means Sequence Dancing

Monday afternoon and we are off to Age UK Senior Citizen Center Earl Shilton along with 40-50 others to Dance for a couple of hours.

This week, the daughter of our ‘Tea Boy’ came with gifts. Roy had died age 93 this February and left some money to be spent for the center. We were presented with 6 non-slip trays and 4 Large Teapots. The teapots were engraved with Ron’s name  and the words ‘CHA Cha Cha’ in big letters to remind us of him.

A great time was had by all.
