1st Henfield Guides – Remembrance Day Service

We welcomed our friends from the 1st Henfield Guides this week as they provided our residents with a beautiful Remembrance day service.

It was a full conservatory that marked this poignant time.

The Guides stayed and chatted with the residents – they even sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to a resident who was celebrating their birthday the next day!

Thank you as always to the Guides and their Leaders for taking the time to mark this very important time.

Work experience – Chris

The reason for me working here this week is because I want to learn how to care for those who have been struggling. I study health and social care at college which is the reason I get to work at Valerie Manor again (even though I may not have been able to help or do something because of being untrained in certain areas) I feel what I have been able to learn and do has been an important experience. Learning to talk with the residents has also helped me understand what some people go through in their lives and what they need now.


Lynda Lyne

Today, Lynda came to entertain us. Unfortunately, with a poorly throat and barely any voice, Lynda had to stick to just the piano concert today with no singing but it was beautiful! We sang along ourselves to some popular musical classics including hits from My Fair Lady, The Phantom of the Opera and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to name a few! Sally-Ann and one of our residents enjoyed a puzzle whilst listening to the music and managed to finish it in record time! A lovely autumnal morning to keep warm inside with the sun bursting through the windows, lovely!
