St Peters Church Tea Party

Once again we were welcomed by our friends at St Peters Church to the monthly tea party. Our chef loves to bake so we went armed with lots of cakes to share with everyone! You can see by the smiles on our residents faces that the afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed again!

Bonnie & Arthur

It has been some time since we had a visiting Pets as therapy Dog (P.A.T.) at Valerie Manor, but we were pleased when we were recently contacted by someone who wished to do so.

Bonnie & Arthur come highly recommended as they know Derrie & Lola Рwho you may remember visited us for many years before Lola  retired.

Praise indeed!

This week we completed all the paperwork to allow the regular visits to commence next Wednesday.

We introduced Bonnie & Arthur to some of the residents and he showed off one of the tricks he has learnt.

Bonnie balanced a biscuit on his nose and he waited until he was told he could eat it, then flipped it into the air and ate it!.

As you can see from the below photograph Bonnie even taught one of our more ‘boisterous’ visitors the same trick!!

Upper Beeding Primary School Harvest Festival

Once again this year we were delighted to be invited back to the Upper Beeding Primary School Harvest Festival followed by tea and coffee. What a lovely treat again – thank you to everyone for your hospitality.

The residents had their first ‘selfie’ and then one resident asked for Sheri to take another photo as he looks better with his hat on – it makes me smile to see our residents so happy……..
