Older Fitzrovia newsletter December 2013

Time to Sing is at Fitzrovia Court (24 Carburton St W1W 5AS) Mondays 11-12.30 – the last session this month will be 23 December. Fingers crossed for funding in January!No experience or skills necessary. Come have fun singing familiar songs with a friendly group of people! 

Lunch on Mondays is available at the George and Dragon pub on the corner of Cleveland and Greenwell Sts from 12.30, at a discounted price of £3 for main meal only, drinks extra. This is through a kind donation from Sir Robert MacAlpine, contractors on the Middlesex Hosp. site.

Massage/Reflexologyis on Wednesdays, 1.30 – 3:30pm in Fitzrovia Court. There’s a funding application out to continue it in January, we should hear before Christmas. If you’ve had it before, do give me a call to make an appointment on 020 7580 4576, unfortunately right now we can’t take on people new to the programme.

Christmas hampers will be available again this year, thanks to a generous donation by MacAlpine, the builders at the old Middlesex Hospital site. This year it would be great to have some more volunteers to help put them together and deliver them; deliveries will happen over two weeks starting the week of 6 December. If you’re interested in helping out, or know someone you think would like one, please give me a call on 020 7580 4576.

Normally we would have a visit from All Souls School in December to sing Christmas carols, unfortunately this year their music teacher Katie has been off sick. I hope to be able to arrange a visit when she’s better in the new year.

All Souls Clubhouse has a range of friendly exercise classes available. They also run two very useful services: Clubcare which includes visiting and other help, and a shopping trip available every fortnight on Thursday. The lunches on Wednesdays are also still going. If you’re interested in any of these, please call Cherry on 020 7255 9756.

The office move is still under negotiation, hopefully by January we’ll finally have a date. The FNA office will be closed 23 December – 3 January inclusive.

I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and a jolly New Year!
