Introducing Elvis.......
Elvis Debbie's 4 month old tiny Yorkshire Terrier came to work with her today which resident's and staff really enjoyed.
Debbie, Peggy, Joyce and Elvis went for a walk over the common.
Elvis was not unsettled by much bigger dogs and happy to say hello.
We look forward to seeing much more of Elvis in the near future.

Happy birthday jenny

Our Volunteer jenny celebrated a special birthday with us yesterday during her fortnightly art and craft session- this week she decided we had better think about making things for our Xmas fayre- coming up on 13th November ... Marie was sewing cushions, iris, Mary and Marise, were creating Christmas pictures and Peggy was doing her artwork in the garden  - joined by pat and joan.  Roy made the tea and produced a lovely cake  big enough to share with all the residents and staff !

Happy returns ...

I have been on annual leave for past two weeks, back today... to be greeted by the sight of these lovely sunflowers.  against the odds they have grown tall and beautiful and really made my day.  Noticed the residents have been busy decorating the art studio with their painted shells! 

While I was away the art studio celebrated it's birthday- in memory of the very dear and talented Ursula White.
