A new venue for our Relaxation Day!

We were looking forward to holding our first Relaxation Day at the new venue, the White Lodge Centre in Chertsey, and we weren't disappointed! The weather wasn't brilliant, but it could have been a lot worse!

The outside team, who were directing traffic in the car park and portering our therapists' couches, got a bit damp but it didn't dampen their spirits. We were very pleased to be helped in the car park by Jo, Sarah and Paul from Sainsbury's Staines.

It didn't take the therapists and workshop leaders long to settle in to their new rooms!

Everyone enjoyed lunch and a chance to chat in the cafe - there was plenty of time to browse the stalls and buy some raffle tickets.

After lunch we met up with our therapists and workshop leaders and went off for the afternoon session - just look at some of the beautiful arrangements the "Flowers for Christmas" group made!

Ode To White Lodge Relaxation Day

We had a fabulous time at the Relaxation Day,
We'll tell you about it, if that is okay,
White Lodge was the venue, on Holloway Hill,
On November the 10th, the day was quite "brill"!

The therapies, the ambience, the great choice of food,
Your comments, they say that all was so good,
Everyone seemed to actively take part,
A joyful time, that melts the heart!

But events like this, only work so well,
As you came along, to make the day "swell",
But we cannot forget, all those who donate
Their time & energy, to make the day great!

So, thanks to Sainsbury's and the volunteers involved,
The Therapists the Wig Ladies, any problems were solved,
This event in November was full of good cheer,
Have a great festive period & a happy new year!

Many thanks to Elizabeth Wyatt, a published poet and one of our faithful team of volunteers, for this lovely tribute!
