Nov

October, the Witching month and what fun we had carving our pumpkins and the designs were amazing. It’s been rather a wet month and the garden is looking really autumnal now even though there are still patches of colour where the last of the flowers are still in bloom. We have had our arts and craft days and been very creative in our work. Our usual musical entertainers have been in. Tom, Chris, Glenda, Jon, Geoff, Jasmine and a new comer called Alan, they were all very good and we always enjoy a sing-a-long. Tony has taken us out on the mini-bus to visit the Spitfire museum at Manston airport, the Chillingham tea rooms, Preston Garden Centre and the Tadpole Tea room, which sounds like something out of Harry Potter. We have visited China, Italy, Poland, France and Asia on our ‘Taste it Tuesday’ all very delicious from our catering department. Fizzy Friday had us sampling Long Island iced Tea, pink Majito, cloudy Lemonade, Expresso martini’s, sparkling apple and raspberry lemonade with Bacardi, white wine spritzer’s, red wine and ice cream sodas. We watched Charlie Chaplin, Dr Zhivago, Norman Wisdom, Camelot, The 39 Steps and The Kings Speech to name but a few. We visited the village hall for bingo and afternoon tea, always lovely to catch up with our friends. Zoe held our gardening club and we discussed what we needed to do in the coming winter months in and out of the greenhouse. We held a residents meeting and had a church service where we gave thanks for the Harvest and the local farming community. We are looking forward to next month and Bonfire night. Before you know it The Festive Season will be upon us.

September 2019+

We are now at the end of the summer months and that autumnal nip is in the air.

The garden is still in bloom though and we are still managing to get out amongst the flowers during the day when it’s warm. We have had another busy month with visits to the Staple vineyard, Weatherspoons for fish and chips, Tadpole Coffee Shop, Mama Feelgood Coffee Shop and two trips to the village hall for an afternoon tea and bingo session. Further afield we have visited Vietnam, Cuba, India and Spain on our ‘Taste it Tuesday’ treat, all very flavoursome and once again the catering staff did a great job.

We have been entertained by our usual wonderful singers. Jon Beetham, Geoff Stephens, Chris Field, Glenda and Jasmine and her 60’s Divas, we always have a sing along with them. Our cinema club had some classic films on offer. Brief Encounter, Rebecca, The Man With The Golden Gun, and many more. We have had our usual ‘Arts and Crafts’, manicures, exercise classes, cooking and one-to-ones. Fizzy Friday had us sampling Mojitoes, Passion fruit Mojitoes, Pina Coladas, Passion Fruit Martinis, Pink Lemonade and for those who prefer not to have alcohol sampled non-alcoholic raspberry Mojitoes.

The staff, visitors and residents enjoyed fund raising for Macmillan by holding an afternoon tea and cake event. We ended the month with a residents meeting to air  any concerns we may have and to discuss what we would like to do in future months. Looking forward to what’s in store next month with Halloween high on the agenda.

August 2019+

The month of August, when the surrounding country side is waiting for the farmers to bring in the harvest. Our own gardening club have been busy in the greenhouse and on the raised bed bringing in our produce. We have had an abundance of tomatoes, rhubarb, runner beans and plants. We have been out and about with Tony on the Mini-bus to various destinations around the coast, a favourite is Deal where we have ice-creams along the beach.

The village hall has entertained us this month with afternoon tea and a Bingo afternoon which was really enjoyable. It’s lovely to meet residents of the village. We have had our usual musical entertainers. Jon, Tom, Glenda, Mandy, Geoff and Chris for a sing-song. The Arabic dancer returned to give us all another display of agility on the dance floor and we joined in with the percussion instruments. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ had the delights of the catering staff getting us to taste Thai, Italian, Pakistani and Australian Food which were all very delicious.

‘Fizzy Friday’ is always a treat. Gin and Tonics, Bucks Fizz, Shandy’s and Ice cream sodas. We have had cinema club, arts and crafts, painting, chair aerobics, quizzes and dance sessions, we do seem to cram in so much, keeping us on our toes. Our resident meeting went well, these are always useful for both residents and staff to put forward suggestions and concerns that may arise.

We had the Church Service for those who wished to attend and we are always grateful that they make time to come in to the home to allow us to have this service. Here’s looking forward to September, which I’m sure will be as full and entertaining.

July 2019+

Well summer is well underway and everything is in bloom. The garden is looking wonderful and we spend a great deal of time in it. June is the time of Year when we have our annual Bar-b-q with staff and their families. We still have family members that come, who have had family that have passed through our large family and it’s lovely to catch up with them. The kitchen staff excel in the wonderful food that is prepared to accompany Dave’s very tasty Hog Roast. This is all washed down with Pimms or tea. All the staff worked really hard to give everyone a great time. We were fortunate to have a very hot, sunny day and many of our guests participated in garden games and enjoyed the side stalls. We had cake stands and guess the weight of the cake. We sold plants that our gardening club had cultivated during the year. Guess how many sweets were in the jar and we sold our arts and crafts book markers and cards. There was a bottle stall and a wonderful raffle. We had live music and all sang songs and for those who were more
energetic, or had drunk too much Pimms, danced the afternoon away. We have also enjoyed our usual daily activities and tastings that have kept us really busy. The 21st of June is the longest day and the nights start to draw in again but we will continue to enjoy the garden and all the activities that we do in it while the sun shines.

June 2019+

Well spring is definitely here. I love this time of year with everything bursting forth in the garden and all the young animals being born. We have managed to fit in no less than five gardening sessions with Zoe. We have produced lots of plants in the green house, some have already been planted out but there is still lots to do. We had the church service, which celebrated the spring season.

We had our residents meeting where we discussed concerns that we might have and also activities we might like to do and food and items we would like to see on the menu. We have tasted the culinary delights of Canada, Cuba, Vietnam and Indonesia on our ‘Taste it Tuesday’. Fizzy Friday gave us fizzy berry and mango, coke with rum lime and sugar and sparking orange, apple and cloudy lemonade. Tony’s tours took us off to The Turner Gallery in Margate, Preston Garden Centre coffee shop, Tadpole Tea  Room in Frog Lane Canterbury, no I didn’t make it up and lastly Gibson’s Farm Shop at Wingham. We have been musically entertained by, Jasmine’s Jazz and Swing, Tom Abraham’s, Jon Beetham, Geoff Stephens and Chris Field, all very enjoyable.

Some of us ventured up to the village hall for afternoon tea. This is a very enjoyable time, as we get to meet people who live in the village and it’s a change to the home environment. The celluloid afternoons saw the likes of Norman Wisdom, Michael Palin, Marilyn Monro,  Bing Crosby, Frank Sinartra, Doris Day and Rock Hudson in films that must be 50 years plus old, but enjoyed by all who joined in the cinema club. We have had our usual arts and crafts, manicures, quizzes, bingo, baking, library, exercise class, yoga, guessing box, singing, dancing, board games and scrabble. After all that we just managed to fit in an afternoon nap as well.

May 2019+

Well what a full month April has been and the weather hasn’t been too bad either. We started with an ‘April Fools Day’ quiz. April fools day has been popular for hundreds of years when neighbours used to play pranks on each other but there is conflicting evidence as to why. St George’s Day we had a quiz about St George and other famous George’s and as it fell at the same time as Taste it Tuesday we had traditional English High Tea to celebrate. Our other Tuesday Tastes took us to Japan, we tried sushi and Dusk. India,  with a choice of Korma, chicken Tikka or Madras, this was accompanied with rice, poppadoms and naan bread. We had Algerian couscous, meatballs, chickpeas with spicy tomato sauce and salad. Easter was late this year and the weather was amazing. We all had hot cross buns and Easter Eggs and made Easter Bonnets in our craft session with a competition forBest Bonnet.

Some of us attended the ‘Afternoon Club’ at Littlebourne Village Hall, it’s lovely to get out and see new faces and make new friends over tea and cake. We have been busy with Zoe our gardener at the ‘Gardening Club’ which we hold once a week. There is lots to do in the greenhouse and in our raised bed. Our musical entertainment saw the return of familiar favourites. Jon Beetham, Glenda, Tom Abraham’s, Mandy Reynolds, Geoff Stephens and Jasmines Music rendition of Dreamboats and Petticoats, which was wonderful to sing along to. We enjoyed our cinema club with a wide variety of films including, the Big Country, The Quartet, The King and I, The Way We Were to name but a few out if the thirteen we have seen. All the more enjoyable with popcorn. Tony’s tours saw us visit Pegwell Bay, Westgate-on-Sea, Minnis Bay and the Vineyard at Staple all very enjoyable.

Our usual Fizzy Friday had us sampling Sparkling Apple, Fizzy Stra

April 2019+

This month on the 5th of April our lovely Resident Peggy turns 100 , she had a lovely cake and plenty of birthday cards, including a birthday card from the Queen to mark her centenary.

We would like to this opportunity to wish Peggy a very happy 100th birthday and heres to many more!

Garden Club Activities:

  1. Split into 3 groups the residents planted up a double tiered planter with strawberry plants. These should fruit this summer and they are all looking forward to tasting them!
  2. Each participant also planted up a small terracotta pot with cuttings from a variety of sempervivums (houseleeks). This involved them filling pots with compost, choosing and arranging a selection of the small succulents in their pot, and finishing with a covering of decorative grit and a name label. 

These pots can be kept in their rooms or outside their windows where they can see them.

March 2019+

The Daily Sparkle is a reminiscence newspaper specially developed to provide daily stimulation, interest, enjoyment and fun for older people and people living with dementia.

It is a daily newspaper which is about the world many older people live in, a world which we see as the past, but which is often their experience of reality. The articles trigger memories of times when they often felt happier. The Daily Sparkle helps older people feel good about themselves.

The Daily Sparkle evokes feelings of happiness and enhanced self-esteem. It also provides the perfect opportunity for interpersonal engagement. With its short, easy-to-digest articles, older people enjoy sharing their precious memories with others, paving the way to building relationships with staff and other residents.

 

February 2019 Competition
 

"School Days" 

 

In this month's competition, we want to involve you and your residents in recalling memories about their school days. We are interested in the funny, personal, and meaningful stories from this time. 

We will choose four winners, and each winning Activity Coordinator will receive a cheque for £75. In addition, the winning entries will be reproduced as columns in the Daily Sparkle, attributed to the resident.

Well March was a busy month for us. We had a great selection of musical entertainment. Glenda, an old favourite sang songs to us, as did, Tom Abraham’s, Jon Beetham, Geoff Stevens, Chris Field and music by Jasmine. We have celebrated two saints in the month, St David’s Day as well as St Patricks Day. We had quiz’s about the two saints days and historical discussion. Other major celebrated days were Pancake day when we enjoyed pancakes with a variety of fillings and a ‘tossing the pancake race’ between residents and staff. We celebrated Mothering Sunday, International Book Day and International Women’s Day. We have enjoyed chair Yoga, exercises with Tony, and we had a residents meeting where we can discuss any concerns we may have and put forward ideas as to how the home is managed and we have had a church service. Zoe, the home gardener came in to do ‘The Gardening Club’, for those of us that like gardening and the raised beds and green house are now ready for us to start putting our tomato plants in for the summer. We have had board games, which included Scrabble and jig saw puzzles. Ball games kept us all on our toes even though we were sitting down. We enjoyed the singing and dancing sessions and manicures, a little bit of pampering does everyone a bit of good. We went out on the mimi-bus with Tony to Preston Garden Centre, always a favourite, Gibson’s Cafe and Deal sea front for an ice cream. For those of us that like the cinema we have had film afternoons with the tuck shop and pop-corn and watched some old time favourites. The Great Debaters, Funny Face, Guys and Dolls, Gone with the Wind, Wives and Daughters and Mr Tom to name but a few. Taste it Tuesday saw us tasting the delights from countries such as Egypt, Asia and Germany. Fizzy Friday had us sampling Prosecco, Coca-Cola and Bucks Fizz all very delightful. We have also had the guessing box, which tests our

February 2019+

Well, February the month of love has passed. Looking at all that has been happening this month, I don’t know how we have fitted it all in to 28 days. Tom Abraham’s, Chris Field, Jon Beetham and Geoff Stephens gave us musical entertainment which we all enjoyed. Chris came on Valentine’s Day and gave us many love songs and we had a Valentines Day quiz. The Activity staff have given us manicures. We have cooked, had arts and crafts and painting sessions and we have made some remarkable work. We have had our sensory sessions with the Guessing  Box where various items are placed in a box and we have to guess what’s in it. Apart from our Valentines quiz, we have quizzed around the world. Which has fitted in with our ‘Taste it Tuesday’ which had us sampling food from China, Peru, Russia and Jamaica, they were all very interesting. Our trips out have taken us to Preston Garden Centre, The Coffee Shop in Sandwich and Elham Valley Vin Yard Cafe, no wine just coffee. Fizzy Friday we sampled Summer Berry Smoothie, Lemonade Shandy Ice Cream soda, Fizzy orange and Coca Cola. We have watched many good films this month, including Hello Dolly, Guys and Dolls, The Quartet, The 39 Steps to name but a few. We always have pop-corn and tuck shop when viewing. The staff entertained us one afternoon with a Karaoke session and there were several staff that got in to the swing of things rather too well. Our residents meeting was productive and we could put forward suggestions of activities and other changes we would like to see. Scrabble has been on the board games agenda, which has got the Little grey cells working over time as well as our usual games. We love our singing and dancing sessions and some how things come to a stand still as staff and us are singing and bopping away. Tony continues to keep us on our toes with our exercise classes but it

January 2019+

Well, we are in to the New Year. It has been quite chilly but we have managed to avoid the snow. We started our year with a New Years tea party that was enjoyed by everyone and again the catering staff put on really delicious food. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ saw us going to Turkey with Lamb Kofta, chicken kebabs, flat bread and salads. We had crispy duck pancakes, prawn crackers, vegetable spring rolls, sweet and sour chicken, prawn toasts and black bean rice on our Chinese experience. We had traditional Greek feta salad,  tzatziki, pita bread and Greek yogurt and honey. We celebrated Burns night with Haggis, neeps, tatties and shortbread biscuits. Last but not least we had a very tasty Hungarian-Goulash. Needless to say after all that we were in need of our exercise classes with Tony.

Our musical entertainment this month included a new face to the home, Jasmine, who played the beautiful piano in the hall, with ‘The Piano Bar Experience’. We were also entertained by our usual favourites Jon, Chris, Tom and Geoff. The activities team have kept us on our toes literally with dancing, also quizzes, with a special one for Burns night with poetry reading and a travel the world quiz, which was quite challenging and got the ‘little grey cells’ active. We have baked, sung, played board games, had manicures, arts and crafts afternoons, painted and our first church service of the year. We have had a residents meeting where we expressed our views on what we would like to do in the coming months and also any concerns we may have. For those of us who can not manage to join in group activities we have had one-to-one’s.

We have been to the Hurricane museum,  Wyevale garden centre for coffee and Preston garden centre to get plants for the greenhouse with Tony on the Mini-bus. We have had some great film afternoons with The Kings Speech and Breakfast at Tif

December 2018+

Christmas seems such a long time ago and we are well in to January. We seem to have fitted in so much during December. We had festive entertainment from Tom Abraham’s, Jo Beetham, Geoff Stephens, Chris Field, Jasmine and all time favourite Glenda who appeared as Snow White. We visited Littlebourne School for a splendid school Christmas fair, a wonderful nativity play with Christmas carols. The children were excellent and we had a really lovely time.

We also had Christmas Carols at St. Vincent’s Church in Littlebourne which were delightful. For those residents who could make it we were treated to an evening of the Kings School orchestra and choristers who were unbelievably talented. We were also kept busy within our home with board games, baking, quizzes,  bingo, arts and crafts, singing and dancing. Tony put us through our exercise classes and the girls gave the ladies manicures in time for Christmas. We had a lovely Christmas party with the staff and our relatives. The catering team excelled themselves with a fantastic seasonal spread of goodies. A great time was had by all and most of us were asleep in the afternoon as the mulled wine kicked in. We watched seasonal films on the TV and our cinema afternoons included High Society, It’s a wonderful Life and the African Queen.

November 2018+

November News

Well where has this year gone?

We are in December already and Christmas is round the corner. But first, what have we been up to in October and November. Musical entertainment has seen the introduction of new artists as well as our old favourites, as in Glenda, Tom Abraham’s, Jon Beetham and Geoff Stephens, the new recruits Chris and Jasmine were well received by all.

Jasmine sang at our Christmas party on December 8th and was excellent, getting everyone who was there in to the party spirit. More of the party in the new year.

‘Taste it Tuesday’ saw our taste buds visit Argentina, Canada, Cuba and Vietnam. We tasted breaded chicken with Chorizo chips, sea food paella, chicken with rice and peas, Po rice noodles, vegetable stir fry and spring rolls. To wash all that down ‘Fizzy Friday’ had us trying Strawberry/Summer fruit cocktail, BlackBerry lemonade and Banana/Raspberry cocktail.

We have been out on the Mini bus to Folkestone, along the Lees, Westgate-on-Sea, Ramsgate and Canterbury garden centre which was very festive. We have had a variety of films, from Pearl Harbour, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, South Pacific, Top Hat, Camelot, The African Queen and Some Like It Hot. The list goes on, all we’re very good as was the popcorn. We have cooked, played quizzes and danced with Pom-poms and Tony has kept up our exercise regime.

We now look forward to Christmas and all the festivities. Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.
