A very big well done to Lucy Frost and Lorraine Plumstead who both walked from Swanage to Corfe Castle to raise money for the Alzheimers Society.It was a windy affair but both ladies completed the walk in under 3 hours and had a well deserved drink at the end. Well done ladies.
August activities have been very busy with trips out to the beach for icecream & cream teas as well as a trip to St Marys Church as a special request from one of our residents who lit a candle in memory of her husband as well as singing hymns.The sunshine also gave us a chance to do activities in the garden as well as enjoying the residents and staff BBQ with entertainment from Mr Steve Whale.
We also enjoyed another visit from Di Castle for our monthly poetry club and the residents are working on there own poem we cant wait to read it . The residents also had there monthly visit from the rev Andy which they always enjoy with a hymn service at the end of the morning and music which was provided by Bridgette thankyou. Scrabble has been a disaster for tracie still not managing to win a game well done Lucy !!!. Our residents also did alot of other activities including arts & crafts making lavender bags and clay pots as well as there weekly exercise class,a gentlemans lunch,pamper day always popular and sensory activities.On a final note for August we had a 100th Birthday in the house which is always a fabulous achievement and was celebrated in style with his family and his favourite food jelly.
