Back at MEH business as usual - communion , poetry club , morning coffee, walks on the common, art and computers ... And got time to show Peggy how to use my new pompon maker ! Very addictive - she enjoyed the challenge and we now have a tree of pom-poms in the games room! Patty did us some more posters and Marise got out her summer wardrobe - modelling her sun hat and glasses today! Peggy had to get out the sunscreen it was so hot today. Baby Jude joined us on the patio, had his lunch and then we took him to the volunteers lunch!
To all of our wonderful volunteers - we held a lunch party in their honour today at 'the smart & simple hotel' in tunbridge wells. beautiful afternoon , sitting in the garden with lots of lovely food and chilled drinks. Thanks to Marius and his team for the excellent service. Sadly , Karen couldn't join us as she was called away on urgent business so Hilary stepped in to do the honours and thanked everyone for their contribution to the residents - it means a great deal to them and we are very grateful for the time and effort everyone here today puts in .
