one of Joan's favourite games is connect 4 - elizabeth, one of our volunteers from school, came to play with joan and helen joined in too - jean was happy to read her paper!  afterwards,elizabeth played the piano for helen as she loves listening to music.

in memory of peggy james...

Peggy James' family chose to have her' wake' at mount ephraim house yesterday and we were very happy to oblige. sheila,daniel and carol prepared a fantastic buffet luncheon for  family and friends.  Peggys' daughters, Caroline and Jenny, invited the residents to join in too, as they have enjoyed many happy hours around the piano together over the time Peggy has lived at MEH.

monday reminisence

we were pleased to welcome back Beth after a short break - she is a volunteer at meh and visits once a month to reminisce with a small group of residents.  today it was the turn of susan, helen and jean and the subject was art and craft.  beth brought some books and pictures of art and things to make - all three residents were very artistic in their former lives, and they found the topic very interesting.

MEH Bowling Challenge 2013

The first ever MEH ten pin bowling challenge on sunday 3rd march at the Bowlplex, tunbridge wells,  was WON by 'the Aches and Pains' team in lane 4, led by our very own handyman, Tim Brewer; he was  just pipped at the post for overall highest score, by Garry Jeffries of Printwells.

we have yet to calculate how much money was raised on the night for the residents amenities fund, but we will keep you posted.  the evening was great fun and we plan to do it again, later in the year.
