March activities and celebrations
In March we celebrated a number of different days and events, along with all our usual activities.
On 17th March our residents and staff celebrated St Patricks Day. Lots of staff members dressed up for the occasion, and we had a themed lunch with Guinness. In the afternoon Geoff Hiscott came in and sang Irish folk songs which was wonderful.
The 20th March was national story telling day. We celebrated the day with an afternoon tea party and residents and relative’s sharing life stories and poems.
We celebrated the first day of spring, the 21st March, by residents and staff planting some trees and flowers in our gardens and planters by our front door.
On the 30th March we celebrated Mothers Day with a special lunch menu in a beautifully decorated dining room. After lunch a choir group visited to sing for our residents. Everyone enjoyed the lunch and the singing.
