Horsham Council!



Pretty much a full house for our activity host, Kimberly from Horsham District Council today!

The residents enjoyed playing basketball and hoopla this morning. What strikes us is the support from fellow residents, echoes of cheering could be heard around and about Valerie Manor when someone managed to throw the ball in the basket and no disappointment occurred when one of the residents was announced as the winner with the most points!

Fabulous team spirit and a firm favourite activity from the Council. Thanks Kimberly! (we might need a bigger room next time!

April Activities Summary!

April came and went in a flash!

I do hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weather over the Easter Weekend.

Unfortunately John and I could not attend the Easter Sunday Lunch but I heard it was a great success.

Still Exercising on Monday mornings from our chairs.  It is so lovely when visitors join in with the exercising,  Reminiscences and Quizzes.

Lots of different music still being requested with the most popular being songs from the Musicals where visitors, residents and staff sing along

Lots of Red Roses for St. George’s Day and a Quiz from Sally-Ann.

John and I were very lucky to go on a ‘Special’ trip on the Royal Scotsman in April to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary from last year.

A wonderful wonderful experience…brought back some Scottish Music….by a duo that entertained us on the train….for everyone to enjoy.  Scotland is really BEAUTIFUL.  We have only had a short visit to Edinburgh before.  I have a lovely photo of John in his complete Scottish attire that he hired for the ‘special’ dinners.

Bye for now


Jalopy Trip!

Today’s journey with Lee and carer Joyce took residents in the direction of some of their previous addresses…West Chiltington, Pulborough, Storrington and Shipley to name but a few.

It was a deceivingly warm day although there was a nip in the air. Along their journey, it was agreed that fish and chips is on the agenda soon heading to Goring or such like for the next outing! Yum!
