They say you’re never too old to try something new and that’s certainly true when it comes to residents at Kift Lodge, our Abbeyfield retirement house in Hanham.
Here’s Norman attending his first life drawing class last week at Hamilton House, a community hub in Stokes Croft, Bristol.
Norman went along with team members Soraya and Kerryanne for a new experience. “I’m interested in art and I go to weekly painting classes but I’ve never done life drawing”, said Norman, “so when the lovely girls at Kift Lodge asked if I’d like to go with them, I thought ‘why not?’. It’ll be an experience.”
“I’m glad I went and really enjoyed it!!” he added, “I was a little taken aback at first but I quickly got used to it”.
Have you tried something new in your later years? We’d love to hear from you.
(Norman’s drawing was absolutely excellent.. but we’re sorry, we did have to blur it out for publication!)
