Well autumn is upon us and the autumnal feel is in the air. September has been another busy month. We have been entertained by Glenda, always a favourite and Jo Beetham, Tom Abraham’s and Geoff Stephens. Tony has taken us on trips out to Minis Bay, St Margaret’s Bay, Capel-le-Ferne and the coffee shop at Bridge.

We enjoyed the McMillan coffee morning to raise money for ‘The McMillan Nurses’ and people with Cancer. Patricia has kept us busy baking, bingo, arts and crafts, quizzes, the tovertafel table game, remembering quizzes, manicures and our weekly signing and dance group. We had the Harvest Festival service and Tony kept our waist lines in check with his exercise classes.

We have had such a great summer that we have played giant Naughts and Crosses, Snakes and Ladders and Boules in the garden. September film afternoon was showing Pride and Prejudice, Guys and Dolls, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The kitchen staff have not disappointed us with our ‘Taste it Tuesday’. We have tasted the delights of Thailand with a green and red Thai curries with noodles. Greek delights included Greek salad, Spinach and feta parcels, grilled Halloumi and Tzatziki with pitta bread. Our trip to India had us eating chicken jalfrezi, pilau rice, naan bread, mango chutney, onion bhajis, samosas and cobra beer. Our North African Taste was of Algeria. We had couscous with minced lamb, chunky vegetable sauce chickpeas and flat bread.

Fizzy Friday had us tasting Pimms fizzy orange, fizzy apple and cranberry and fizzy lime and black current. We are now getting ready for Halloween so look out for new letter in November

June 2018+


What a wonderful month May is. Watching all the flowers, trees and newly born animals bursting forth. We have had yet another busy month. Tom Abraham, Jon Beetham and Geoff Stephens have given us musical delight, which was really enjoyed by us all. Rob and his team in the Kitchen, have prepared wonderful, exciting food for ‘Taste it Tuesday’. We have had food from Australia, Sweden, Turkey, Poland and China which were all enjoyed and much appreciated by us all. The catering staff have also made exciting ‘Fizzy Friday’ drinks, including Banana, strawberry and lemon smoothie. Tropical Mango, Fresh lemon lemonade and Mix Berries-Summer Fruit punch, all very delicious and all helping with our five a day. Tony has taken us to some of our favourite bus journeys, including Tankerton Beach, Folkestone Harbour, Sandwich Quay, Deal and Walmer sea front, Capel-le-Ferne, St Margarets Bay at Cliffe, Hurricane and Spitfire Museum Manston and Pegwell Bay and we were very excited to go to Littlebourne School Tea Party-which we thoroughly enjoyed with all the children. When we are not hot footing it around in the bus we have been quizzing, baking, painting, playing games and arts and crafts. We always enjoy having our pampering sessions with manicures and keeping fit with palates. We have enjoyed our film sessions and have watched The Quartet, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Life is Beautiful, Singing in the Rain, Top Hat, Charlie Chaplin and Gosford Park. 

 

February 2018+

 

Well Christmas has been and gone. We had a busy time leading up to the big day. We decorated the tree and put the decorations that we made up around the Home. We had the Home Christmas party on the 9th when family, friends and staff enjoyed a wonderful buffet and champagne with musical entertainment. A good time was had by all. We have been entertained by Geoff Stephens, Thomas Abraham’s and Jan Beetham always our favourites. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ saw us going to Greece, Asia and British Christmas Food. Our Fizzy Fridays/Cream Teas always a delight with different cocktails and wonderful scones, cream and jam, just as well we have Debbie keeping us on our toes with Palates. We have baked, painted, quizzed, played games, had Arts and crafts, played bingo, trips out with Tony to the coast and had pamper afternoons. For those of us that need one-to-one we have had hand massages, manicures, arts and craft and a visit by the tuck shop and library. Christmas Day morning we had sherry and mince pies and a visit by Santa’s Little Helpers who handed out Christmas presents. Christmas Dinner was cooked by Emily and all the catering staff team worked very hard to make it a success and very good it was too. We were joined by family members for lunch and the staff. Most of us were in bed seeing in the New Year but New Year’s Day we had a special lunch of roast lamb and Prosecco.

January started wet, windy and cold. Needless to say we were pleased to be tucked up warm. We had the Church service on the 3rd which most of us attended. During the month we had Tom, Jon and Geoff back in to give us musical delight. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ saw food from Egypt, Germany, Algeria, India and Korea, very apt as the Winter Olympics will be coming from Pyeongchang in South Korea. We had a couple of film afternoons we watched Pride and Prejudice, The Queen, Laurel and Hardy an

September 2017+

Well another busy month has passed us by and the nights are beginning to draw in even earlier. We have still enjoyed some days out in the garden despite October knocking on our door as the weather has been warm. We have been entertained by the Deal Landmark singers, Geoff Stephens and his guitar music, Tom Abrahams wonderful singing, Jon Beetham and Glenda who are old favourites and The Singing Sweetheart Kelly. We are trialling evening entertainment in the form of Simon Lee. Residents enjoy some drinks and music before retiring to bed. We joined the village in celebrating the Harvest Festival at the village hall where we enjoyed tea, stalls and a raffle. Thank you to all who organised this and welcomed us all so warmly. Tony's tours took us to Pegwell Bay, Minis Bay, Sandwich Quays and Deal, a real tour of the coastline. Tony escorted some of the ladies to Canterbury for coffee and a catch up with friends. Stephanie from the kitchen team is back from Peru and gave a fascinating talk of her holiday experiences, amazingly one of our residents had lived in Peru and aided Stephanie on her reminiscing. We had activities relating to Harvest festival helping each other to remember how we celebrated it over the years. ‘Try it Tuesday’ brought us delicacies from Jamaica, Thailand and Spain all very different and tasty. On 'Fizzy Friday' we tried drinks with exotic fruit flavours that tickled the taste buds and followed the themes of our ’Try it Tuesday'. After all that eating and drinking Pilates Debbie soon had us back in shape with her exercise class.

August 2017+

Well the first of September sees us coming in to Autumn and it certainly has that autumnal feel to it in the mornings. We have had a busy time over the summer months as staff and residents alike have been on their summer holidays. We had the Littlebourne House summer Fete on the 17th June, which was a great success. The staff, residents, their families and friends all had a great afternoon with Dave providing us with a mouth watering Hog Roast and the catering staff doing an excellent job in providing us with all the delicious salads and pastas that go with it, keeping everyone's glasses topped up with Pimm’s, followed by some amazing deserts. We had a variety of stalls and made over £250 which was added to the residents fund. All this was helped along with music from Andrew Briggs 1920’s record player and music from a bygone era. Tony's Tours have been on outings to Sandwich Quay, where a 'P' type gun boat, which was used by the Americans after World War ll to patrol the Rhine in the early 50's, was moored after taking part in the new film version of Dunkirk. We have also visited St Margaret's Bay, always a favourite and the Lees at Folkestone. We have had numerous singalong with some of our favourite performers, Glenda, Tony Stocks, Geoff Stephens, John Beetham, Tom Abraham, plus a Ukulele band and a specialist singer/guitarist who specialised in reminiscent music. Our church services have included the harvest festival and of course Pilates Debbie is still keeping us on our toes. We welcome Clare our new activities co-ordinator to the team and is settling in to the role very well. We look forward to the months ahead leading up to Christmas but we have Halloween and Bonfire night to get organised before that.

 

Welcome to a combined June/July events news letter.It doesn’t mean to say we have not been active, on the contrary. Our musical entertainment has been with our old friends Glenda,Tom,Jon and Geoff which we all enjoy as it gives us the opportunity to sing along and some of us get up and dance!Tony has kept us on our toes with his exercise classes and he is a quiz master like no other, all those who take part get the chance to exercise those little grey cells. We have baked cakes and played games, bingo, giant chess, noughts and crosses and drafts in the garden making the most of this very warm summer that we having and making sure we have our sun screen on.

We have also played on the Tovertafel or the magic table this is a special piece of interactive equipment specially designed for those residents who have Alzheimers or dementia. We have painted and had pampering manicures which we all enjoy, even our male residents too.Tony has taken us on excursions to Wyevale Garden Centre where we enjoyed cream teas. We visited Minnis Bay  for ice cream, Westgate on Sea, more ice cream, Deal sea front, you guessed more ice cream, Capel-le-Ferne to the Hilltop cafe and Pegwell Bay. We have had the church services which were well received.Our film Wednesday which included, Summer Holiday, Pride and Prejudice, Mrs. Henderson Presents, Beatrix Potter and a couple of a John Wayne Westerns!We all visited the tuck shop as well with lots of lovely treats. Fizzy Fridays are always good fun. We have tried Pimms non alcoholic cocktail, spritzers, bloody Marys and a special Prosecco/Bucks Fizz on the 22nd of July for Patty as she was going home to Poland to get married on the 29th July to her fiance.

April 2017+

We are now well in to 'Spring' and all around us flowers and buds are sprouting through.  Some of our residents have been busy in the garden planting the tubs ready for, we hope, a grand display of flowers in the summer.   The 1st of March brought St David’s day, the morning started with a Welsh quiz with questions relating to famous places in Wales and during coffee we sponsored the Daffodil Appeal on behalf of the Marie Curie charity. We celebrated with a St David’s day lunch of lamb and leeks and then after lunch some residents looked at places of interest in Wales with our big picture book. There was for those who enjoy, a game of Bingo and for our film enthusiasts Breakfast at Tiffany's was playing at the King William. 
 The 2nd started with Life Stories, which is part of our 'This is Me' therapy.   In the morning residents were asked about animals in their lives, if they had owned them, looked after them, farmed them or worked with them. Amongst our residents we have a vet and ex-policemen who worked with animals, and many residents remember pets they had or farmed. In the afternoon, we had Card Games at the King William with pub refreshment and snacks.
Jon Beetham had a percussion/singalong on the 3rd in the morning and in the afternoon we played the parachute game which helps with balance, coordination and arm strength. On the 4th we had a word association game which made everyone work their grey matter and in the afternoon there was a general knowledge quiz. Other residents enjoyed being at the magic table for computer interaction. We had Arts and Crafts the morning of the 7th, painting pictures of spring scenes, mainly daffodils. In the afternoon several residents went to the village hall for the 'Afternoon Club' to listen to a talk on the 18th century Battle of Bysingwood. Debbie turned up on the 8th for Pil

March 2017+

Burns Night lunch was a great success and everybody enjoyed the efforts of the kitchen staff.  Unfortunately, the 'Memory Walk' in aid of the Alzheimer's Society had to be cancelled due to extremely icy conditions but we had afternoon tea and released the balloons to mark the occasion.  We saw out January with Chinese New Year and it's the year of the Rooster for 2017.  We had a Chinese tasting session in the morning along with a discussion on Chinese crafts through the centuries and in the evening, we had Sweet and Sour chicken for supper.

Now to our February events, the month of love.  We had a church service on the 1st that was well attended.  Jon Beetham came in on the 3rd for a percussion session and sing-a-long.  A group went to the 'Afternoon Club' at the village hall on the 7th and there was a quiz and a raffle but unfortunately none of us won anything.  We had a coffee morning on the 9th to start out Valentines celebration, we incorporated a quiz on famous couples and why we celebrate it, where it originated from and about St Valentine himself.  In the afternoon we had a Pub afternoon at the King William and played pub games with music and shandies.

Debbie came in on the morning of the 10th and we were put through our paces with our Pilates class and we all felt a lot fitter afterwards.  The day of love, 14th, saw the kitchen produce a wonderful Valentines lunch with love songs from Mick Abbott.  Our cinema afternoon saw Doris Day in the 'Pyjama Game' and we had popcorn and lemonade.  We had a wonderful walk down at Minnis Bay on the 16th, cold, crisp and sunny, really blew the cob-webs away.  On the 17th we had one of our favourite trips down to Ramsgate harbour for a Fish and Chips lunch.  The 20th saw the return of Glenda for a sing-a-long afternoon wh

January 2017+

The New Year activities started on the 3rd with the over 55's club discussing the war years. This bought back many memories, tea and biscuits were served and there was a raffle.

We discussed the month of January on the 4th learning about its facts and celebrations and we also took the Christmas decorations down. We had a residents’ meeting on the 5th discussing what we would like to see and do in 2017.

Our 'Lunch Club' took us to the Evenhill Pub on the 10th which was very enjoyable. We had a visit from the 'Vintage Show' which was a reminiscence of music and picture. Kaiser, the German Shepherd, came to visit us on the 12th, he really made the residents smile and obviously helped some of them to remember their own pets. We had a discussion about the breed and how they have been used in the forces and sometimes as guide dogs.

Elvis was in the building on the 16th and gave us an hour of sheer delight with several residents having a jive and Glenda was back with us on the 18th for a Winter sing along, it’s always good to see her. We had a pub afternoon of dominos, quizzes a couple of pints and some nibbles.

Looking ahead to the end of the month we have Burns lunch with Scottish piper Alex Burt and on the 27th we are having a charity memory walk for the Alzheimer's society. The end of the month sees us celebrating the Chinese New Year, which is the year of the Rooster. We are looking at Chinese crafts and have a food tasting session and Rob from the catering team will be preparing a Chinese option for lunch so watch this space.

December 2016+

December started with Littlebourne Primary School Christmas Fair on the 2nd, where residents had an enjoyable afternoon participating in the raffle and leaving with a good proportion of the prizes.

On the 6th we had our church service with Carols which always gets you in the mood for Christmas. The next day Littlebourne Primary School Choir came in and entertained us with really wonderful carol singing. Our film afternoon in the King William was a real oldie, "It's a Wonderful Life”, and the accompanying fizz and pop-corn was a real success. The 9th saw a return visit from Jon for a sing along of old songs and carols. The Frantic Theatre came in on the 14th with their Christmas production which was enjoyed by all.

Save the Children had a Christmas Jumper day on the 16th, so staff gave up their uniforms for some very interesting Christmas jumpers and raised money in the process for a very good cause. Residents put their cooking skills to the test on the 18th making gingerbread stars, which unfortunately never made it to the Christmas tree as they were eaten while still warm. We had our Christmas party on the 18th and it was lovely to see staff and family joining us for supper while Glenda kept us entertained with popular songs. We had a raffle which is always popular and we would like to thank everyone for their generous donations.

We had residents and staff partaking in Carol singing on the 23rd and on Christmas Eve Sherry and Mince Pies were enjoyed while five of Santa's little helpers distributed Christmas presents to our residents. Staff, residents and their families enjoyed a traditional Christmas lunch and for those that managed to stay awake had games and music.

November has passed and another busy time for us here. We have had musical entertainment with Geoff Stephens, John Beetham and Tom Abraham’s. On Monday the 6th we ‘Remembered Remembered the 5th discussing what Guy Fawkes and his band of men tried to do, we followed this by a wonderful fire work display held at tea time and we made a Bonfire collage in arts and craft. We have made some great arts and crafts this month, making rainbows with water and Tutti Fruities, We have made cakes and enjoyed a clotted cream tea. We have traveled the world with ‘Taste it pTuesday’ having sampled delights from 🇮🇹 Italy, 🇨🇳 China and 🇲🇽 Mexico all very delicious. We have played Bingo and quizzes, keeping our minds active and had pampering with Manicures. We have been working out with Palatis Debbie keeping the weight off ready for the Christmas indulgence’s. And of coarse we always enjoy Fizzy Friday.

November 2016+

November started with residents and staff remembering those who sacrificed their lives so that we live the lives we have today. Residents, staff and visitors recognised the two minutes silence and our Poppy Appeal raised sixty pounds.  Of our daily mini-bus trips, we made a point of going to the Spitfire Museum at Manston as we have many residents who were members of the RAF.  Our residents spent time looking at War years memorabilia. This brought back memories of those who worked at Bletchley Park working with the code breakers and we have a field agent from MI5 and a gentleman who was awarded Russian Convoy medal from the Russian embassy 2015. The residents enjoyed songs and music from the war years and many reminisced telling stories of their experiences during the war years. Staff and residents enjoyed a karaoke for Children in Need which was a great success and enjoyed by all who took part and seventy one pounds in the process. We celebrated Childhood week by visiting the Hornby Museum in Margate and this brought back many memories for our residents. They thoroughly enjoyed the train sets and Meccano building kits. This was continued with discussions on child hood games, toys, stories and clothes, many remembering having a knitted swim suit that stretched when it became wet. Everyone found the memories of this extremely funny. St Andrews day did not go without broth, meat and tatties being served for supper with a Wee dram of whiskey.  Our notice board had a Scottish theme and we had a North of the border quiz.    We are looking forward to the beginning of the Christmas festivities and we have lots planned for December, so watch this space in January to see what we have been up to.  Dont forget the residents Christmas Party at 3pm on the 18/12/16 for residents, relatives and staff. Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas!

Well the leaves are turning, the clocks have gone back and it’s only six weeks to Christmas. We are as busy as always. The activities team have been keeping our residents on their toes! In the musical department we have had the delights of the Singing Sweetheart, Geoff Stephens, Jon Beetham, Trevor and his guitar and the Simon Lee’s Music workshop. They were all very enjoyable and participating is always great fun. There was a church service and Holy Communion was administered. Several of the residents went to the local primary school to celebrate Harvest Festival, that was followed by tea and cake. Tony’s trips saw us off to Nickle Farm. Our old favourite Debbie put us through a rigorous exercise regime to keep us moving after all the tea and cake. Our ‘Try it Tuesday’ saw the culinary delights of the catering staff serving up a Turkish delight and an oriental Sushi which was delicious. ‘Fizzy Friday’ served up Cream Soda, Fizzy orange and Mango, Ginger Beer and Dandelion and Burdock, all went down very well. The catering team put on a wonderful Halloween supper and the conservatory was decorated accordingly with items made by residents, a great time was had by all.
