Waterperry Gardens 160719Waterperry Gardens 16th July 2019 - click here for photos

On Tuesday 16th July Headway South Bucks enjoyed a lovely day out to Waterperry Gardens in Oxford. It was a beautiful sunny day and very warm! On arrival we enjoyed tea and coffee followed by a lovely lunch of sandwiches, crisps and fruit. We were seated under a large canopied area which meant we could enjoy being outside but were protected from the sun. As you can see from the photos we were all seated together which was really nice as everyone was able to join in the many conversations.
After lunch we were able to wander around the beautiful gardens enjoying the many different areas there are to explore. As you can see from the photos there is an amphitheatre, a river walk, a museum, a pond, numerous flower displays and a delightful saxon church. For those who wanted retail therapy there was a farm shop, gallery, garden shop and nursery.
At 2,30pm we all met up again to enjoy an afternoon tea of scones, jam and clotted cream plus homemade cakes! Oh and of course more tea and coffee!
Suitably full we boarded the coach to return to Bourne End after what can only be described as a thoroughly enjoyable day.
A few comments from those who attended : Beautiful day, Brilliant day out, It was really splendid.

Calendar Girls 270319

Woking Theatre - Calendar Girls 27th March 2019 - click here for photos

This week nearly 50 of us went to see Calendar Girls - The Musical at Woking Theatre. Setting off from Bourne End, in a coach convoy, we navigated the M25 and M3 and made our way to Surrey. We stopped at the Talbot Inn Restaurant for a delicious lunch before settling down for the matinee performance. Calendar Girls - the Musical - is based on a true story of a group of Yorkshire women who agree to create and sell a nude charity calendar. As members of the WI, they pose behind various props - iced buns, balls of wool, a wheelbarrow, a piano - All done in the best possible taste, though 'We're Going to Need Considerably Bigger Buns!’ ! It was great fun and poignant at the same time. Another well organised and enjoyable outing. Thank you Team HSB.

Headway Christmas Party 11th December 2018 - click here for photosChristmas 2018

On Tuesday 11th December we held our biggest Christmas lunch so far! Over 70 clients, volunteers,staff and friends enjoyed a lovely Christmas celebration. The day started with refreshments and carol singing. We were very lucky to have several members from Wycombe Philharmonic choir who came to lead the carols with everyone. At midday we transferred to the main hall which our volunteers had worked really hard to decorate beautifully, as you can see in the photos.
We enjoyed a two course Christmas lunch followed by tea and coffee which was delicious as usual. After lunch we were entertained with some wonderful singing by Nik Stoter, one of our favourite entertainers. As you can see from the photos Nik got us dancing and some braver members even enjoyed dueting with him.
During the afternoon we drew the raffle and the lucky winners were able to chose a beautiful hamper from a selection that one of our talented volunteers creates.
We also said a sad farewell to two members of staff, Jenny our Services Manager and Loraine one of our Coordinators. We wish them all the best for the future.
It was a lovely day and a great end to 2018 for Headway South Bucks.
