Easter art and craft today

Such a beautiful warm and sunny day today and some people took the opportunity to sit outside on the patio - to read, relax, have a manicure or just sit and chat over tea.... The games room was buzzing with activity - patty was painting chicks, Marie made Easter cards, jean took to painting eggs and was joined by her son, alistair... Iris did some watercolour painting. Jenny our volunteer brought homemade cake and roy made the tea!
Many of the other residents were enjoying Heather's class - Music for Health - and a few lucky ladies had visits from their families....great start to spring!
