Grandma’s Poetry Book

Grandma’s Poetry Book

 

I would like to thank Tracy for giving me another lovely welcome at Wordsworth House.

I brought my book, Grandma’s Poetry Book, along with some of the illustrations and read a few poems to a small group of residents.

The group loved listening and looking at the illustrations.

Very soon they began talking about their families and their memories.

There were lots of smiles!

Tracy has asked me to return and I shall be back in June.

 

Kind regards
Di Castle

“I have visited Wordsworth House in Swanage on numerous occasions to entertain the residents and staff for their social afternoons, Fete’s and Christmas Parties.
The staff are always so inviting and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The home is set in beautiful surroundings and is spacious and very comforting.
I really enjoy visiting Wordsworth House with my show and look forward to many more visits in the future.”
