Another Wonderful Outing!

Lee and Bernadette took some of the residents out and about in the jalopy this morning (2nd April 2019)

One of the gentleman on the outing loves football so Lee took them all out to Falmer to see Brighton and Hove Albion’s Football Stadium, The Amex!

They then took a drive down race hill and over Devils Dyke and through Poynings on route back to Valerie Manor in time for lunch.

The skies may have been grey but it didn’t make a difference to the fresh air and change of scenery.

Everyone seemed to have a lovely time! Thanks Lee!

St Barnabas Pop Up Shop

The lovely Catherine joined us from the St Barnabas charity shop in Steyning today to offer a fantastic array of items for Easter.

The pop up shop consisted of greetings cards, chocolate eggs, puzzles and potted pansies to name but a few.

Our residents enjoyed having the freedom to choose their items and many of the staff got involved too buying bits and bobs for family members!

We welcome back the pop up shop in the summer months and then again nearer Christmas!

Thank you to Alison, one of our chefs, for making such delicious cakes for the occasion.

What a lovely morning.

Jigsaw Afternoon!

The residents asked Lucy if she could organise a regular jigsaw afternoon a week! As you can see, last Friday afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

March activities summary…………

I do hope you have been enjoying the lovely March sunshine!

A couple of special dates have been on our Programme this month.

Residents woke up to lots of Daffodils and Flags on St. David’s Day……on the Monday after exercising we celebrated with a St. David’s Day Quiz followed by listening to rousing Welsh Choir music.

On St. Patrick’s Day Residents were treated to a Guinness Cake and tipple!……… again after Exercising on the Monday we had another Quiz this time about St. Patrick’s Day with both Residents and Visitors joining in followed by some lovely haunting Irish music.

Bye for now
