January/February 2016

January may be a cold and dull month outside, but, not here at Fairby.  

We were busy planning themed lunches for the forthcoming months.  Our first lunch of the year was Burns Night. Our chefs served up a delicious 3 course meal consisting of Coq a Leekie Soup, Haggis and Neeps, finishing off with  Mince Tart with Dates and Custard. We had a glass of wine and enjoyed the sounds of Bagpipes playing. 

Our new Activities Coordinator, Mel, joined us during January and is busy getting to know all our residents.  Mel has already planned lots of new activities, aswell as organising projects that all our residents can be involved in.

February has certainly kept our chefs busy.  We celebrated Chinese New Year with a 3 course chinese meal.  Our dining room was decorated with lanterns, chinese dragons and table decorations. 'Gong Hey Fat Choy' - as the Chinese would say.

Valentines Day - what a lovely day this was.  Not only did our chefs lay on a fine lunch, but we were serenaded by Santino on his guitar.  We enjoyed a glass of wine and ended up dipping strawberries and marshmellows in a chocolate fountain.  A little bit messy - but good fun and delicious!!
