It was a fun filled bonfire night this year in the Nursing Home, when Residents gathered for their afternoon activity on the 5th. They were enthralled with the task of building a new friend to join their group, Mr Guy Fawkes. Through a little paper mache and newspaper stuffing and the donation of one of the Residents suits, the task literally ‘lit up’ a caution to the wind attitude, with a newspaper fight breaking out, accompanied by excitement, giggles and laughter. For the Residents it was like a fun Friday afternoon back in the school classroom with friends. The commotion remained as they waited for the themed dinner which came that evening, each person eagerly looking forward to the sparklers which would follow.
