Tapas night! ¡Olé!

The residents ‘Food committee’ requested a Tapas night recently and the whole team pulled out all of the stops!

The catering team sourced the food (and Sangria!) for what was a lovely evening.

For those that have visited the Home prior to COVID – you will know that these special events were regular occurrences. The residents and staff really enjoyed the evening and we all look forward to the time our residents can invite guests along.

In the meantime a huge thank you to the Food committee for the idea and to everyone who made it happen.
