The Diamond Jubilee Club

On the last Tuesday morning of every month from 10.30am until 12.15pm, the Diamond Jubilee Club runs at Bexley Christian Life Centre. And we had a great time last week.

Our visit to the diamond jubilee club is always one of our favourite places to visit as we have been for many years now - it's a place where local care homes and friends of the community come to visit. It is designed for the over 65s in our community who are lonely and isolated and looking for friendship, and also those who experience memory loss. It is open to all who feel they would benefit from a morning of music and song, where professional artistes are sometimes invited alongside our Pastor Del and his wife Carol. We play hymns and entertain with songs from the shows, sing-a-longs, and melodies from the 1940s to present day. Although music is used as reminiscence therapy, it is simply for fun as well!

The club can give carers a well-deserved break, but carers are also very welcome to attend. The team of volunteers provide simple crafts and there is always a chance for a chat over tea or coffee and homemade cakes. Prayer is offered to those who would benefit! The club is entirely free of charge.

An outing that’s always worth waiting for is our yearly visit to Kent & East Sussex railway, booked by popular demand over to two separate days earlier this month for our residents to enjoy.

We went on a round trip starting at Tenterden station, going through Bodiam. The 21-mile route took us through scenic countryside, and everyone took the time to relax in the beautifully restored carriages and to enjoy a lovely ploughman’s lunch. It’s amazing how nice it can be just to watch the world go by!

We saw Bodiam Castle – complete with its moat and impressive ramparts with their breathtaking views across the surrounding countryside – and it was an absolutely fabulous day out! We can’t wait for our next visit.

Things are heating up at Groveland Park!

Something special happened here at Groveland Park this month – we were visited by both old and new faces when the crew from our local fire station stopped by at our Bexleyheath care home. This is something we try to do each year and as always, they didn’t disappoint.

We believe that these visits are essential when it comes to the welfare of our residents and additionally, everyone thoroughly enjoys finding out what’s new and people have fun sharing stories over refreshments and pasties. These visits are beneficial for both parties, as the crew had the opportunity to reassure residents, taking the time to build that all-important trust and confidence that they would always be well cared for should an emergency ever arise. Next time, we’re off to visit them, so watch this space!
