Dressing with Style!

Dyscover members shared photographs and memories of clothes they’d worn in years gone by from bell-bottom flares and hot pants to uniforms and wedding dresses! 

Kingston member James showed a dashing photo of himself in naval uniform in South Africa while Ann’s photos of herself in fancy dress provoked lots of laughs.

Thursday members described their wedding attire – Trish designed and made her own wedding dress! She brought a sketch she’d made of her elegant and stylish dress. She’s kept the dress but sadly the fabric hasn’t aged well!

Volunteer Pat supported Indra to help describe the traditional Nepali costume (Daura Surwal) he wore at his own wedding: a long-sleeved red stripped tunic and matching trousers complete with sash.

All that Jazz!

Thursday group members were blown away by Claire’s sultry jazz voice when she brought her album to share with the group for a session on Music. Claire was a professional jazz singer before her stroke and, accompanied by her partner George on keyboard, produced an album of 4 superb songs which members listened to during the coffee break. It was a very special moment and prompted lots of reminiscences and stories!
