An excellent example of recent interdepartmental co-operation was a special afternoon In Activities when the residents were transported back in time to a 1940’s/1950’s themed Tea Dance. The event was held in a decorated activities’ room hosted by two of our care assistants, Gyorgyi Mellor and Cheryl Searle.
They were treated to an afternoon of dancing from a visiting volunteer dance group, “Remain Nameless”, followed by a sumptuous tea of sandwiches, cakes and pastries, which were provided by assistant chef, Suree and Sister-in-Charge, Kim. A raffle had been organized in which every resident won a prize! The afternoon was a wonderful success and all who attended, thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The afternoon ended with Bob Sable, on behalf of all the residents, thanking Gyorgyi, Cheryl and all those involved, for a happy and memorable time.
