Valerie Manor Garden Party!
I was so delighted with our Valerie Manor Garden Party – the weather could not have been better and we had so many lovely visitors, friends and families of our residents and families of residents who are sadly no longer with us. The staff worked so hard ensuring the residents enjoyed the day and were safe, there was factor 50 suntan lotion, additional umbrellas and lots of drinks, choc ices and lollies to hand to ensure we all remained hydrated during the afternoon.
I must say a huge thank you to all of our staff for making the event so special and working so hard in the hot weather, also to Alan and Richard for preparing the newly landscaped gardens and Clare our wonderful gardener for all the planning, preparation and planting that she has done so far – it looks spectacular and will evolve over the next year. Of course, thanks as always to Chris our chef for an afternoon of food and drink followed by a special buffet for our residents.
Not to forget that it is Alan’s birthday soon we felt it was appropriate to celebrate with everyone during the afternoon.
It is so lovely to now have the gardens open for the residents to enjoy!
