Following a successful first round of abacus training as part of the Dementia Prevention Project, Nisih Freeman has secured another round of 10 weeks funding from the Nottinghamshire County Council to run abacus training for the elderly in Keyworth open to elderly in Keyworth and surrounding areas.  Hope to see new people on next Monday!
Starting date: Monday, 8 October 2018
Ending date: Friday, 21 December 2018
Venue: Mondays, Centenary Lounge, from 10am to 11am
              Fridays, Centenary Lounge, from 11am to 12noon

‘Active mind’ abacus sessions for the elderly have been running for 10 sessions now (5 weeks).  We have around 21 participants who signed up for the event when we started.  There are currently around 15 who still attend at different times depending on their other activities.

It is really amazing to see their enthusiasm toward learning the abacus and how they put aside time everyday to do some tables.   The dedication they have shown towards the training is also unbelievable.  Many of them have taken the abacus with them when they went on holiday so that they could keep up when they came back. The sessions have also been useful for them to get to know more people around the area as we have participants who came from West Bridgford, Cotgrave, Kinoulton, and Keyworth.
