How I became one of the Fifty-Plus group 2019 to date part 2

THIS IS EMMANUEL

MY JOURNEY TO THE MILDMAY COMMUNITY CENTRE

Shortly after Whitmore was closed in 2020, we went to various places, such as Secret Garden, Curve Garden and another Garden at Navarino Street. We learnt lots of things in those places. New songs every time from our lovely late Gifty, a talented lady. R I P GIFTY.

Some days Rick, will give us a topic on a certain subjects to talk about. Sometimes he will set up Podcast, for everyone to say whatever is in your minds, must be something positive. Rick does not wants anybody to talk about religion.

MILDMAY COMMUNITY CENTRE

I saw an email message from Rick on 50+ group, telling us that we have now move down to a new place,  MILDMAY COMMUNITY CENTRE. I was delighted about the news. I quickly locate the place at the weekend, and joined the group immediately on Monday.

Mildmay Centre is a nice place and is spacious, it has a personnel office, meeting space, Kitchen and a massive Hall that could accommodate large amounts of people.

MONDAYS LESSON: TOPIC  HOW TO USE SMART PHONE  AND iPAD.

Our first lesson was how to use your smartphone and ipad, teaching about voice typing, downloads of images etc  it was a great lesson for me, there are some other new things l learnt from different applications.

WEDNESDAYS DROP- IN

Specifically for the IT begginners, I also found the group extremely useful. The volunteers are on standby to help you. I enjoyed coming every week because no matter what difficulties you may have, the Volunteers people are here to help. I always enjoyed their company all the time.

FRIDAYS LEARN MY WAY

Learn My Way is a great Self Computing Studying. You can study it anywhere as far as you have access to the internet.

We were taught how to create it, and try the questions on the subjects you have studied. it is so simple to do.

MY ACHIEVEMENTS

As much as I loved studying computer, so also I tried my interest on other things.

Without wasting time I joined MATHS GROUP, and got my MULTIPLY MONEY MANAGEMENT CERTIFICATE in March 2023. I developed my interest furthermore, joined Florence Flower Group in July 2023. I am pleased with my grade level.

Florence is a good teacher, with a good attitude and willing to teach. She taught us well and within few days of my learning with her assistant, I started making paper flower on my own.

ENJOYING  THE STUDYING, PEOPLE AND ATMOSPHERE IN THE CENTRE IS FANTASTIC.

I am still having a nice time at Mildmay Community Centre; I commend other elderly people to join us.

Thanks to Mr. Rick, for assisting us whenever we call him for something, he always there for everyone.

My thanks also goes to the Management, for the opportunity they gave to the Elderly people.

  1. Hey Emmanuel – this is a really good blog post.

    Just one comment – we don’t mind people talking about religion. What we don’t need is preaching, which is not the same thing. As we say on our blog About page “Only your lived experience please – this is not a place for mere opinions, politics, preaching or text doodles. You are more interesting than that.”
