  Feedback re: our zoom sessions: Hi Richard,  Sorry for the rather slow response to your request for zoom feedback and all I can say is just a HUGE thank you to all of you for all of your hard work and your great ideas. Vicky absolutely loves them and can’t wait for each session to start, she particularly likes the quizzes, and you make us both laugh all the time. It feels as though we are all part of one big family and it has been really lovely for me to get to know you all, and some of Vicky’s friends too.  So we would both like to say, Richard, Julia, Mikaela and Anja – you are all absolutely amazing, please keep up the good work and thank you for keeping us connected, and sane!!  Many thanks  Vicky and Prue

This event was supported in a variety of ways by the other Interakt groups, session, leaders and volunteers.  The DJ/VJ group created the play list, lights and visual effects. The Ballroom Group choreographed a number of 60’s style routines for all of us to enjoy.  The Art group put together 60’s style displays, mood boards and created 60’s fashions to model down the cat walk. The Thursday and Friday Groups took part with their fashion statements, modelled down the cat walk and explored the art of 60’s style mosaics.
