Spring has arrived. The trees are bursting in to life, flowers are looking at their best and the bird life in the garden are busy building nests. Our arts and crafts group have painted spring landscapes, painted our bird boxes to put out in the garden, made clay models and painted them and we have concluded the ‘Littlebourne Family Tree’.

We have been busy baking. Flapjacks, brownie's, cheese and bacon turnovers, cheese twists and jam and lemon curd tarts. We all enjoyed the tasting afterwards. Still on food. We had an exotic fruit taste test from around the world. This included mango, papaya , passion fruit, melon, water melon and pomegranate’s. It’s quite hard when you are blindfolded. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ we visited ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Italy, ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Japan, Sweden ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช and Jamaica ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ. The catering staff always make this interesting and delicious.

After all that food we worked some of it off with Stella’s music for health, chair exercises. Also we were entertained by Timmy, the Jazz pianist and Laura’s entertainment playing music from the 50’s and 60’s.

Indoor Floor games are always fun, hoopla, bowling, tin can ally, bean bag throwing and magnetic darts (staff need to duck) you never know where they will land. We have been in the green house planting seedlings and we have made lavender bags. We celebrated St George’s day. We made cakes, scones and sweet treats which we enjoyed at our classic English tea.  For those that could keep their eyes open, we had a St George’s day quiz and sing along.

The poetry clubs choice of poems this month was ‘Spring’ chosen from books or written by residents. We read them out to each other and discussed them. Our Spa afternoons are very popular. It’s wonderful being pampered, it’s very calming with the music and some of us have forty winks. For those that are unable to get to the summer house, staff give hand and arm massages.

We have been out on the mini-bus. Coopers bistro at Preston garden centre. Mama Feelgoods cafe, always good cakes, Quex park barn shop and cafe, Meadow Grange Garden centre and the Viking Ship cafe at Pegwell Bay. We have enjoyed film club and watched The Devil Wears Prada, Fiddler in the Roof, Forest Gump and many more.

We have also managed to fit in, scrabble, and other word games for the little grey cells. Chair yoga, Bingo, Tuck shop and a residents meeting. These are important as it gives residents the chance to discuss concerns they might have. What they would like to see on the activities list and menu suggestions.

We are looking forward to May and better, warmer  weather so that we can sit in our beautiful garden.

September 2022+

Well July and August have passed this year and what a summer. I don’t think we have had a good dousing of rain since February? It’s been a very long, hot summer but that hasn’t stopped us from being active. 


In gardening club, we have planted pots of basil, parsley, mint, chilli peppers and yellow tomatoes and different varieties of red tomatoes, of which one is candy striped. We planted sun flowers and they are coming on well. We have made and filled bird containers for the bird tables, as we have a great variety of bird life around us. We have picked the dry lavender and made lavender bags. We have had an abundance of flowers and we have picked these, made them in to flower arrangements, to decorate our rooms and social areas.

The weather was kind to us and the rain held off while we were enjoying the Hog Roast, Pimms and delicious deserts. Once again the catering staff put on a fabulous spread. All the staff worked hard to ensure everyone had a great time.

September/October News 

 

So we have a combined September and October account of activities, someone had a grey moment I wonder who. In two months we have achieved quite a lot. We started September with the 80th Anniversary of the outbreak of World War 2. This co-insided with National Nutritional Week, a coincidence in respect of the years of rationing that our parents and grandparents had to injure.

Which leads us to ‘Taste It Tuesday’. We have covered many countries over two months. Vietnam, Cuban, Indian, Spanish, Italian, Polish, French, and Asian. And as usual our catering staff made a huge effort to ensure we all enjoyed the delights of their labours. We had a create your own Smoothie, and Sandwich afternoon and they were excellent.

Gardening Club we potted up bulbs ready for next year. We had to clear the allotment and greenhouse ready for planting next years crop. We had a gardening club Sensory Game, Guess the Smell, that was interesting as it wasn’t all flowers that we were smelling!

We celebrated World Alzheimer’s Day and in baking we celebrated World Apple Day. Brogdale near Faversham has one off the biggest collection of Apple trees in the world, it was started by Henry VIII. He sent out a group of men to find as many varieties of apples that they could find and bring them back, where they started to graft different varieties together, which gives us the varieties we have today. As Kent was a good area for growing and its proximity to London, it became ‘The Garden Of England’.

We have carved pumpkins ready for Halloween and in Arts and crafts the theme was very much autumnal and spooky. We have had several befriending services and we have managed to get Holy Communion in the summer house which has been wonderful. We had a residents meeting to discuss matters arising and to put forward ideas, for up and coming events, that we we would like to see on the agenda. We have had exercise classes, 80’s and rock and roll karaoke's, trips out, sing alongs, games of Bingo.

It has been, for us all, a period of unknown and few certainties but the residents have shown their resilience and determination through this time and our amazing team have not let us down in their dedication and commitment and for this we thank them.

In less than 5 weeks, it will be March. Daffodils, sunshine and warmer longer days greet us and we can once again celebrate the small joys together when we can get in to the garden and our outdoor activity programme can get back into full swing.

In the meantime we continue to enjoy our varied programme of games, singing and food!! Although there is a way to go, till some form of normal returns, we all feel very positive about 2021. We wish you all a happy safe New Year.

We have recently started a new club which involves, yes more food, Cheese and Wine from different countries. So far we have sampled French and Italian cheeses and wines. We celebrated Halloween, you can see the pictures on the Website, which was great fun and we played games.

In arts and crafts we have been creative making leaf decorations from salt dough. We made a group picture of Halloween pumpkins from a potato stencil. Our stain glass window of a tree was very good, using tissue paper as the glass. We individually made autumn leaf pictures and Halloween pictures and decorations.

We watched several movies over the last couple of months in Film Club, Goodnight Mr Tom with John Thaw, Seven Brides for Seven Brother with Howard Keel and Jane Powell, The 39 Steps, Camelot with Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero and Robin Hood to name but a few. We had a church service which we always appreciate.

We celebrated Kindness Day and of coarse Remembrance Day and watched the service at the Cenotaph on the television. We had some fantastic fireworks to celebrate Guy Fawkes night with lots of whizz bangs. We put our brains to the test with two November related quizzes. One was to celebrate The Prince of Wales Birthday and the other a St Andrew’s Day Quiz. And to end the month we had a residents meeting to express any concerns we might have and discuss new ideas to keep us busy and food we might like to try. I expect we will be just as busy this month.

November 2020+

A fantastic donation has been made to The British Legion on behalf of the residents and staff at Littlebourne House of £150

September 2020+

We know we are nearer to autumn as the mornings are getting chilly And the leaves are turning in to those beautiful warm golden colours.

We have all been busy this month. In our baking club we have made cakes, sausage rolls and scones. We have been on trips out to Ramsgate Beach and Minnis Bay. It’s lovely to see a change of scenery and the coast takes on a different prospective each time we go. On good days we can see the French coast really clearly.

There are always plenty of ships and tankers to look at. The catering staff have given us a real Asian journey with ‘Taste it Tuesday’. We have visited ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ณ Vietnam ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ Cuba ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ India and China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ. It was all very delicious.

Fizzy Friday had us sampling watermelon/raspberry lemonade, coconut rum and coke, lime soda, straight rum and coke and spiced rum and coke. We felt as if we were in the Caribbean with the sun shinning.

We have watched a variety of ๐ŸŽฅ films in film club Ladies in Lavender - The Victors -  Chitty Chitty Bang Bang -Sherlock Holmes and the 49th Parallel to name but a few. We have had our usual hand massages and pampering sessions which we all enjoy. What delights will October bring?

August 2020+

Well here we are, at the end of August. The summer almost over, nights drawing in and that autumnal chill in the air. We have been busy this month with a variety of activities.

We have been out on the mini-bus to Minnis Bay, St Margaret’s Bay and Pegwell Bay, really lovely to blow the cobwebs away. Taste it Tuesday had us visiting ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ Russia, ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Jamaica, ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท Turkey and ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท Greece. We sampled beetroot soup, Hot Chicken and Rice, lamb Kebabs and Greek Yogurt and Honey just a few examples of the menu. Fizzy Friday we tried Passion Fruit Martini’s, Non Alcoholic Tropical Fizz, Classic 1940 Moscow Mule and a Sea Breeze.

We picked apples and lavender in our Gardening Club to use in our craft and cooking group. Our baking group made apple crumble, cheese scones, rocky road, jam tarts, fruit cake, cheese straws and mini-pizzas. After all that baking and eating we managed to fit in a couple of exercise sessions. In Arts and Crafts we made lavender bags and bouquets to use to raise money for Breast Cancer Day. We painted still life of flowers and sat in the garden to paint trees. We replicated the wall paper in the Brighton Pavillon and Prepared and painted Birthday cards. Cinema Club we watched The Kings Speech, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Guys and Dolls,  Mumma Mia and Hello Dolly to name but a few. In between all these activities we have had a crafty nap.

July 2020+

We have had some wonderful weather during June, really hot days. We have been in the garden making the most of the sun and soaking up that vitamin D. The gardening club planted up pots with sage, mint and lavender, hopefully the kitchen will make use of them once they are established.

We have baked cakes, coconut, chocolate cornflake cakes, Rocky road and fruit cake. Our art classes were inspired by the sea this month. We painted Pictures of dolphins and jellyfish on paper plates, which made a wonderful display in the lounge. The cinema club showed a mixture of films such as, Samson and Delilah, Return of the Musketeers, 49th Parallel, Anastasia to name but a few.

We sampled Whisky punch, white wine spritzer, fizzy apple and orange, beer and fizzy blackberry on ‘Fizzy Friday’. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ we visited France๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท and and had French cheese selection with baguette, grapes and French wine. We had Jamaican ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ jerk chicken, rice, crackers and super malt beer. Across to Asia for a Thai ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญRed curry, rice and Singha beer and lastly back to Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นfor spaghetti bolognese, pizza and Italian chianti. It was all very tasty and enjoyed by all of us. We had a trip out on the mini-bus to Ramsgate which was most enjoyable. For those of us who can’t get about as much we had hand massages and seated exercise classes that help keep us going after all that food and drink.

We kept the ‘Little Grey Cells’ active with quizzes and board games as we know it’s important to keep the brain active as well as the body.

What a wonderfully hot July we have had. It’s been glorious, just a shame we can’t go anywhere. But that does not mean to say we have not been busy.

We have travelled afar on our   ‘Taste it Tuesday’. We took in Australia, Czeck Republic, Peru and Hungary. We sampled the delights of these far flung countries and again the catering staff excelled themselves. Not only did we taste the food but we discussed the country’s and then had a quiz to see how much we had absorbed. We have been entertained by the staff. We had a Karaoke, staff members singing ABBA songs for us and we joined in. We have had our usual arts and crafts and quizzes to keep the brain active.

We had a Church Service, for which we are always grateful, as we know how stretched our church is, not having a village Vicar and we appreciate the time that they give to us. We had a residents meeting, a chance to discuss matters that may concern us and to put forward ideas that we would like to see implemented in the future. We have had trips out on the Mini-Bus which blows the cobwebs away.

We have a new Summer House which is much larger than the old one and can accommodate more people. Fizzy Friday had sampling cocktails of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety. Really it’s all go, and it’s wonderful that we are kept on our toes.

June 2020+

Well we are well in to Spring now. We are still in lockdown though but at least the weather has been wonderful and we can make the most of the beautiful garden that we have.

With no visitors coming and going we have been kept occupied with an array of activities. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ has seen us visiting Canada, Cuba, Vietnam and Indonesia, very different flavours and unusual food from Canada, bacon and pancakes?  Fizzy Friday we tested Pimms’s with lemonade, Sangria with lemon and lime and gin with a choice of tonic, lemon or orangeade. Film Club saw some old favourites and some new arrivals but the popcorn was the same.

We celebrated VE Day, which we all remembered. At 10.30 we had a briefing on the days activities. We started with a VE Day quiz, just to make sure ‘Those Little Grey Cells’ we’re working. This was followed by a Fish and Chip lunch for us and staff. After lunch we were entertained by Mandy Reynolds and at 3pm we all sat down for afternoon tea a great day was had by all and many memories came back to a lot of us. 


Those that could, took part in the Residents meeting to discuss any worries that we might have, especially at these uncertain times. We are continuing to Face Time our families and phone them, which we all feel is very helpful and keeps us close. In our baking club we made vanilla cup-cakes, rice crispy cakes, coffee cake and scones. As the weather has been so good we have had many garden games. Hoopla, giant naughts and crosses and dominoes, croquet and numerous seated ball games. The gardening club were in action repotting their carnations and placing them out for all to see. And the art class got us painting a sunflower field and using balloons as flowers, we painted a vase of balloons.

We used potato stencils to make pictures of butterflies and dandelions. For those of us who can’t join in with activities, we had hand massages and manicures, there is never a dull moment. We look forward to the day that the world comes back to some normality.

In the meantime you keep safe as we will.

May 2020+

Well we are still in Lockdown but keeping busy. The weather has been lovely so plenty of time spent in the garden. We have taken up reading the newspapers together, just so we can get an idea of what the rest of the world is doing during these extraordinary times.

We are still ‘Face Timing’ family members and talking on the phone. We have had our usual mix of arts and crafts, baking, bingo and quiz’s. Our exercise classes with Tony, Georgia and Pattie have kept us moving.

Our singing voices were put to the test with an ABBA karaoke. We have had film afternoons, with some old favourites and treated to manicures and hand massages. We have been in the garden with the gardening club and the greenhouse is coming on a treat with tomatoes. We have had a church service but because of Lockdown it was conducted by Home Staff.

We do pray that everyone keeps safe. All of the staff are doing a wonderful job and let’s keep our fingers crossed that ‘The Virus’ is soon no longer with us.

April 2020+

Well, here we are and March already behind us. We have been busy, even with the restrictions on the home with the Coronavirus. We managed to get two trips out to the ‘Tulip Tea Room’ and Deal Sea Front before we went in to self isolation. All the staff are working incredibly hard to keep our minds and bodies active in these uncertain times.

The alcoholic drinks on ‘Fizzy Friday’ are certainly doing the trick to keep ‘our spirits’ up. We have sampled Vodkas and tonic, red wine, Prosecco and orange fizz, beer, fruit punch and banana milkshake’s to name but a few.

Even though we can not leave the home we have visited Asia, Poland, Ireland, Japan and Turkey on ‘Taste it Tuesday’. This included St Patrick’s day, which we celebrated in fine style. As usual the catering staff excel themselves to give us the delights of food from different countries.

We have had exercise classes to keep us moving and our usual creative art, games and gardening activities.

Film club presented us with a variety of movies including, Gallipoli, The Inn if the Sixth Happiness, How to catch a Thief and many more. We have missed our singing entertainment, from our usual talented artists of the area but I’m sure they will be back when when everything is back to normal.

Meanwhile keep safe everyone.

March 2020+

COVID - 19 Update:

 

Due to the risk to our residents we are no longer having external entertainment, however for the foreseeable future we will be increasing our in house entertainment.

 

Coming soon our weekly blog

February 2020+

Well here we are the start of a new decade. With the Christmas and New Year festivities out of the way it’s  business as usual. Our old musical friends Jon Beetham, Tom Abraham’s, Chris Field, Jasmine, Geoff Stephens, Stella and ole favourite Glenda have sung and played in the start of the year. We enjoyed, as always, the Church service,  conducted by the village elders, which we appreciate very much as we haven’t, at this time, a permanent Vicar.

We have been out and about on ‘Tony’s Tours’, weather permitting. We visited Preston Tea Gardens, Gibson’s Farm Shop, The Tadpole Tea room and MamaFeelGood’s. We ventured further a field with ‘Taste It Tuesday’. Tasting the delights of Algeria, Greece, The Czech Republic and the United States of America. Fizzy Friday we toasted Sangria, Fruit Smoothie, Wine, Lemon and Lime Bellini, Shandy, Prosecco and White Wine Spritzer.

We had all our usual arts, crafts, baking, hand massage and bingo, which keeps us all busy. We are looking forward to getting back to the gardening club when the weather improves. We finished the month with a residents meeting to plan what we would like to do in 2020.

Well February was a wet one. We kept an eye on the river and the cellar to see if we needed to hand out life jackets. Joking apart it’s been quite miserable on the outside but inside we have been very busy to make up for the weather. We have visited Peru, Russia, and Jamaica on ‘Taste it Tuesday’ and off coarse we celebrated Pancake Day and the staff raced each other while tossing their pancakes. ‘Fizzy Friday’ had us tasting Bucks Fizz, Shandy, Prosecco, Strawberry-lemonade and Guineas.

Even with the rain we managed to have trips out when the sun shone. We took trips too the Elam Valley vin yard and the valley itself is very beautiful. Preston garden Centre is always a favourite and they do very good tea and cake. We also tried the Tulip tea rooms in Bridge and I’m sure we will revisit in the coming months.

The Film afternoon saw some old favourites. The Kings Speech, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Top Hat and many more. We have been entertained by Chris Field, Geoff Stephens, Jon Beetham, Jasmine, old favourite Glenda and a special Valentines Day sing along with Mandy Reynolds. We joined the over 60’s club at Littlebourne village hall for a Bingo afternoon with a very delicious tea.

We had a residents meeting to discuss any concerns, things we would like to do in the coming months and menu changes. Once again we are grateful to the Church elders who give their time up to come in an hold a service for us. We can only hope the weather improves and we can, in the coming months, get out in to the garden with our gardening club,  roll on summer.

January 2020+

We entered the Christmas month with a choir who sang beautifully and we all joined in which got us in to the ‘Festive Spirit’. We enjoyed parties throughout the month. We were invited to join the children at Littlebourne CofE Primary School for their festivities which was wonderful. And of course or own home party in which relatives and staff enjoyed a splendid buffet and entertainment. The catering staff always put on a great feast for us and work really hard to ensure we enjoy ourselves. Jasmine entertained us with her singing and we joined in with the songs, we also had a fabulous raffle with lots of prizes. It was especially lovely watching residents grandchildren enjoying the time with us.

Our usual ‘Taste it Tuesday’ had us visit France, Greece and Egypt. Our Fizzy Fridays where mainly Prosecco based as it was Christmas so we had a lot of bubbles. At the cinema club, we watched Festive based films such as, Miracle on 34th Street, The Snowman, Meet me in St Louis along with many others. The months musical entertainment saw Glenda, Geoff Stevens, Tom Abraham’s, Jon Beetham and Chris Fields singing Carols and the Littlebourne Brownie Group came in to see us as well.

Christmas dinner was delicious, and we were joined by staff and residents relatives so as you can imagine there were lots of us and again the kitchen staff excelled. Santa Claus came and we all had a bag of goodies, distributed by Santa’s little helpers. We now look forward to 2020, a new decade, a new year with different challenges.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

December 2019+

Well November started with a ‘Bang’. The fireworks were wonderful and we all really enjoyed them and we had the added musical entertainment of Glenda, who is always a favourite. We have carried on the musical theme this month with a Staff/Resident Karaoke and entertained by Geoff Stephens, Alan Harry, Tom Abrahams and Jon Beetham, who always get us singing and dancing. We had a church service, which is always appreciated, that our local Lay Preachers take the time to fit us in.

We also reflected the past conflicts on Remembrance Sunday. ‘Taste it Tuesday’ we travelled to Argentina, Japan, Belgium, Romania and Germany, which our German residents loved. ‘Fizzy Friday’ had us tasting gin and tonic, raspberry lemonade, fizzy mango, sparkling rose and grapefruit, pina coladas, passion fruit martini, fruit punch and sparkling lemonade and lime. We have had a variety of films to watch on our Cinema afternoons. The King and I, Top Hat, Sherlock Holmes and many more.

‘Tony’s Trips Out’ took us to Mama Feel Goods coffee shop, Preston Garden Centre, always good for a cuppa and Chatham garden centre. We were entertained by a very agile Belly Dancer and some of us attempted to replicate the moves. We finished the month with a residents meeting to discuss any concerns that we may have and projects we would like to see in the future. We are looking forward to the Festive Cheer of December

November 2019+

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.

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!
