Guest Blog | Ageing Creatively with Marcus Lilley

More exciting news to share… This week marked the end of our first year of Ageing Creatively across West Berkshire. Our Song at Birchwood Care Home was a celebration of song and dance with everyone enjoying the session. I’ve said it before in these articles but it is truly a joy to behold at the end of the week. We have even more new sessions to announce across West Berkshire, including more sessions of Our Song and the return of Chair Exercises to Harris Close and Redwood House.
