Thursday Morning

Honiton_tm1Honiton_tm7‘Thursday Morning’¬† in Honiton Methodist Church provides a meeting place for conversation, games, crafts, coffee and biscuits. All are welcome. We meet every Thursday, 1000-1200. There is a core team, large enough so there are always sufficient ‘hosts’ to operate weekly. Once a quarter, we also provide a lunch.

 

 

A simple pleasure at the craft table – colouring in.

“Does it go here, perhaps?” – a 1000-piece jigsaw take several mornings to complete.

This game’s called Rummikub. It’s a bit like the card-game Rummy, but with tiles rather than playing cards. It takes a lot of concentration.

The Scrabble players don’t keep the score – playing quickly while keeping the conversation flowing is the objective.

This is Tony, who had the idea for ‘Thursday Morning’ back in 2009. He saw it as a kind of ‘youth club for oldies’.

One of our team (who’s not into games) helps by doing shopping for small items for those (e.g. sight-impaired) who find it difficult to get around the local shops.

For some of our visitors,¬† it can be important¬† to talk to someone who’s good at listening. We try and give them time and attention.
