On Monday 22nd May, the Morning Activity Team arranged a fun, interactive session with Residents, reminiscing on memories of the great British seaside.
Residents got their paint brushes out last week and decorated a variety of pebbles during Activities. The picture shows the wide spectrum of talent that our Residents possess (the pebbles will look even better once they have been varnished).
On Monday 15th May, the weysight group came to visit the Sculpture Exhibition on their annual excursion. Members of the group have visual impairments and so use touch and feel to absorb the sculpture medium.
On Sunday 14th May, Godalming-based choir, Music Kids came to Birtley to give a wonderful singing performance for our Residents.
