2015

04/04/2015 - Entertainment/Singer Steve Khan

All of the residents enjoyed some musical entertainment (especially the ladies) which was preformed by singer Steve Khan. I think they have a soft spot for him, he has performed for us a few times and is very popular. The more able residents got up dancing which they really enjoyed and some of them got a signed photo too.











02/04/2015 - Easter Egg decoration competition

For the Easter egg decoration competition the winners, Peggy and Lil were given a luxury chocolate egg each which they shared with the other residents (not diabetics of course!), they all really seemed to enjoy and even got a bit competitive. Most resident took part and the residents that didn’t still joined us at the table and enjoyed wearing Easter bonnets which they also decorated.































10/03/2015- Drinks & Pianist

All residents enjoyed an evening of drinks and music, residents were offered a drink of wine/beer which were served with lemonade, there were a few relatives there as well who also really enjoyed their drinks and listening to the pianist play. Old favourites from the 40’s and some musicals were played and residents were up dancing it was a nice way for them to welcome the weekend in.

I think they would have had more to drink (especially the men) if they had their way! I’ve never seen anyone enjoy a shandy so much it was lovely!
