lunch al fresco

as the weather continues to be so lovely, the staff arranged lunch outside today under the canopies on the lawn - most of the residents chose to enjoy their fish and chips in the garden although some preferred the cool dining room!

after lunch, Rev Bob Street arrived to hold a short good friday service for several residents and then it was eyes down for the bingo in the games room - christiane had chosen an easter theme where the prizes were all made of chocolate!!

we were given flowers again today from sainsburys which we used to decorate the home and put up some easter decorations too.

happy easter to everyone.
