We have had our first session of Shared Reading at Riverview Development Trust. Although not as many people as we would like attended those that did got fully immersed in the event. All those that attended and participated got either a poetry or mindfulness book to continue with their well-being at home.
June who has always had a love for poetry recited a poem that she can remember learning at school aged 11 - "Meg Merrilies" by Jon Keats. One of June's hobbies is making a scrapbook of all the poems which she enjoys from newspapers and magazines
Agnes loved listening to the reading and the company but felt she relaxes and enjoys watching television more. Although she felt much better getting out of the house and enjoying the company after being in the house for a number of weeks suffering from pneumonia.
