Open day at meh


National care home open day today and we did it in style...

Balloons and bunting decorated the home, residents handiwork was prominently displayed around, vintage tea  and buffet prepared including a scrummy fruit cake made by our chef Amanda ...Derek on piano belting out 'songs from around the world' residents playing bingo & scrabble , sitting in the sun or joining in the. 'World quiz' we  had prepared....

Lots of visitors... and to top it all, a lovely visit from the Mayor and Mayoress of tunbridge wells who met many of our residents, enjoyed a tour of the Home and took tea with manager Karen. A big thank you is due to volunteers Jenny & Roy and Christiane who worked hard to make sure all went to plan.

Monday Monday ...

Poetry and gossip this morning; art and reminiscence this afternoon... Everyone busy if they wanted to be ...some beautiful flower arrangements courtesy of Jean n, excellent posters from patty and lovely colouring from new resident ann and from Joan s.  There were some gorgeous roses out today - vividly remember photographing them for Hester last year!   Joan s also had a go at the art app on iPad mini- think she quite enjoyed it !   Jean n helped me with watering the sunflowers, think they got a bit dry over the weekend ...
