October 2018

During October we tried something new - Gala Bingo. It turned out to be such a laugh. After deciding which of the many game to play, we entered the Bingo Hall and found out that we could’t keep up with the Bingo Caller, however, we didn’t let it stop our enjoyment. Not only that but we were then asked to Be Quiet. It was all very serious indeed, which we found very amusing indeed. Needles to say, we didn’t win anything.

We celebrated one of our resident’s 100th birthday with some entertainment during the morning then afternoon tea later on. What a lovely birthday she had amongst all her friends at Fairby Grange.

We enjoyed our monthly visit from the nursery children who fill the lounge with laughter and play. It’s so nice to see everyone getting involved playing with the children.

For Halloween, we decorated the Home and had a scary evening tea. Everyone enjoyed the evening and some dressed up for the occasion.

September 2018

Autumn will soon be with us, so we are making every effort to enjoy the last days of sunshine and warmth that September can offer.

We visited the newly refurbished ‘Boathouse Pub’ at Yalding, which used to be called ‘The Anchor’. The pub is set in a beautiful location alongside the River Medway. The staff kindly rearranged the tables for us all and we ate fish and chips, sandwiches and some enjoyed a cheeky glass of wine, whilst watching some boats sail by. We will definitely visit there again.

Debbie braved the roads of London and drove some of us to the ‘Imperial War Museum’. A fabulous day out for our residents, who thoroughly enjoyed looking at the memorabilia of World War I, Families during the War and other War related artefacts. So many memories came flooding back of the bygone years.

On Friday 28th September, Santorini will be singing for us again. I’m sure he will get us all up and dancing again.

Check out our photo gallery of our recent visit to the Imperial War Museum. Mel and Irish look so fetching in their war outfits!!

August 2018

It's been a lovely summer with beautiful warm, sunny days.  We have been in the garden relaxing and trying to keep cool with plenty of ice lollies and drinks.

Mel & Claire took some residents on our second boat trip down the River Medway.  We enjoyed coffee and cakes whilst floating down the river.

We were entertained by our regular visiting Nursery Children, who sing songs, play games and generally run around, which is most enjoyable to watch.  The same children visit each time, which is lovely as we get to see them grow up and blossom.

Mel organised a new singer to come and sing with us.  He had us all up and dancing whilst he played some great songs on his keyboard.
