A guid yarn

St Columba’s was chosen to be part of the Dundee Rep programme for residents in care home called “A guid yarn”. This involved a group of older adults from Dundee Rep called “The beautiful people” coming in each week to spend time with the residents. During these visits they worked together reminiscing and participating in small drama sessions, which the residents really enjoyed. The residents felt they had made new friends and at the end of the programme were invited to a complimentary show at the Rep, an Agatha Christie production which they enjoyed.

Residents, staff and families all enjoyed a Hawaiian themed party in the garden at St Columba’s to enjoy the great summer weather. Entertainment was provided by Bob the Music man who got everyone up singing and dancing. Everyone took part and dressed up in grass skirts and garlands and enjoyed a couple of cocktails along the way. A fun day was had by all.
