African drumming at Galsworthy

Residents at Galsworthy House nursing home in Kingston upon Thames enjoyed listening to some African Drumming this week.

Sarah and her husband were playing drums for a charity to help build a school in a small village in Marlowe. Two members of the care team Lucy and Teberah were happy to demonstrate some African dancing, as well as playing the drums. You don’t need to have played an instrument before, and you will find the rhythm come naturally. Drums are a great way to decrease anxiety and increase energy and mobility so great for our residents.

One residents, Paul, joined in and was tapping away on his own drums as Lucy and Teberah danced in the middle of the floor with the other residents watching eagerly.

A lovely afternoon was had by all.
