October 2017

Autumn is upon is but the colder days doesn't stop us from venturing out and having fun.  Some residents attended a 'Song & Dance' afternoon at our local Church Hall.  We danced, sang and had a lovely afternoon tea.  

Another local event held at the Church Hall is a monthly 'Luncheon Club', where some residents enjoyed a 2 course lunch.  This was a lovely way to get chatting with others over a delicious lunch.  We will certainly be attending this event again soon.

We have started to prepare for our Christmas Production.  Mel, our Activities lady has decided that our Residents will star in our very own showcase of 'The 12 days of Christmas'.  Auditions have already begun for star roles.

Some residents attend 'Knit & Knatter', a bi-monthly event held at our local library.  We get to chat with other like minded people, have a cuppa and get on with our knitting or other crafts we have on the go.  However, this time was a bit different - we ended up babysitting a little baby that was visiting the library with her mother.(see photo gallery).  Our ladies love this time where they get to socialise with others outside the home. 

Karen, our lovely Manager has invited the 'Knit & Knatter' group over to Fairby for a Christmas Craft session, including mulled wine and mince pies.   

BIG NEWS - There is going to be a wedding - one of our Senior Carers, Ann is getting married.  Ann has very kindly invited her colleagues and our residents to her big day.  I'm sure everyone will have a super day watching Ann get married and party on throughout the evening.  All the best for the future Ann!!

August 2017

Summer is passing us by very quickly, but we have been having fun during August. Our Greek Night was an excellent event.  We had scrumptious Greek food, prepared by Kyveli, one of our lovely carers, and entertainment from three Belly Dancers.  The Home was packed out with residents and their relatives and we raised £129 in donations.  

Some residents attend a fortnightly 'Knit & Knatter' morning, which is held at our local Library. Here we get a chance to have a cup of tea and chat with like minded crafty people whilst continuing with our knitting or any other type of craft.

Lyn from Music for Health visited us with some exhilarating music to get us all up and moving, followed by some peaceful music to relax to afterwards.

Some of us were invited to one of our Residents daughters house for afternoon tea, which was a real treat for us.  Thank you Maggie!!
