Activities during June
“Party Month” was the theme for June so our residents at Woodlands and Hill Brow have been extremely busy enjoying many interesting, enjoyable and varied activities. Here are just a few things they have been up to;
June 6th was the 70th Anniversary of D day. Our Residents at Woodlands enjoyed a 1940’s sing-along in the morning with a lot of wonderful singing and plenty of flag waving. At Lunch time all our residents gathered together to enjoy a good old fashioned British street party. The afternoon was filled with more music and a great deal of dancing at our very own 1940’s Tea Dance. The whole day was enjoyed by all with many heart-warming stories and memories of what our residents remembered of that day 70 years ago.
On June 14th Hill Brow hosted a wonderful garden party to raise money for our charity “Families Supporting Care”. There was a great array of stalls, games and entertainment throughout the afternoon which our Residents thoroughly enjoyed. They especially enjoyed the SpongeBob stall where they got the chance to chuck wet sponges at the maintenance men. The afternoon was a great success and rose over £ 1,600. Thank you to all who showed their continuing support.
NAPA National Open Day was held at Hill House on the 20th June, this was held in conjunction with our annual staff talent competition. Every year Teams from all 3 homes put on an amazing Talent show for all of our residents. This year’s theme was Shakespeare and produced some very interesting adaptations. It was a fabulous afternoon, with great costumes, singing, dancing and even a spot of rapping.
Friday 27th June Residents from Woodlands enjoyed a trip to their favourite local pub The Tweseldown. Residents really love visiting this pub as we are always made to feel so welcome by the friendly atmosphere. It was a lovely morning out with great conversations, a lot of fun and of course a drink or two.
On June 30th Residents were invited to Robert May School Summer Tea Dance which was a really fantastic afternoon. The children treated the Residents to a wide variety of entertainment throughout the afternoon as well as a continued supply of Tea, Coffee, homemade sandwiches and cakes. The Residents also enjoyed seeing what that the children have been doing at school with a truly remarkable display of some their work, it is also a wonderful chance for the two different generations to come together in the community.
