Poetry and Story telling………..

We welcomed Isobel Woods to Valerie manor last week to read poetry and tell some stories…….this was a new activity for us but enjoyed by those who attended!

High tea anyone?………….

Once a month we hold a special ‘High Tea’ for all our residents which is also a lovely social gathering in the conservatory where even the chefs come and join everyone. I must say, the food always looks delicious but I am trying to be good so didn’t give in to a cake!
