Summer 2019 – Swinging 60’s

Thank you to all of you that took a trip back in time with us last week at our “Swinging 60s Carers Celebration”. You certainly dressed to impress with some groovy outfits featuring flared trousers, blue suede shoes, and knee high boots – they definitely weren’t made for walking!

In the morning we enjoyed reminiscing about the 1960s with Kath Reynolds, talking about fashion trends, music, and toys, including asking how many people could remember the first ever Barbie doll.

After fuelling up on fish, chips and ice-cream we took a trip to Motown with Holly Reynolds, singing along to some 60s classics including “Build me up buttercup” and “You can’t hurry love”. The music was enjoyed by all generations, with some teeny tots leading the way on the dance floor.

We rounded off the day by “Dancing in the street” before heading home for a cup of tea (and a lie down).

We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did, and CASS welcomes any feedback to help us in planning future events. Contact us on 01785 222365 or enquiries@carersinformation.org.uk

CASS would like to say a huge thank you to the volunteers that helped out on the day, your assistance was invaluable and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Here’s to next year’s Carers Celebration!
