We are reminiscing about summertime and holidays to create artwork and creative writing.
Lots of smiles in the home today as Sharon has been keeping the resident's minds and bodies active! From their morning games to a private dining experience to an afternoon cinema movie, they sure have been busy!
The weather may have been rather grey but spirits have not been dampened as we celebrated VE Day at Leycester House.
Residents enjoyed a themed lunch, complete with an identity card and ration book!
A fun game, guess the sweets in the jar followed by some music from the proms.
This afternoon will be flag-waving and singalongs to mark the occasion.
The winner of the Guess How many Sweets In The Jar Competition is... Anne
With a guess of 162 against the actual number of 157.
All residents took part, so well done to all but Anne was the closest.
Happy Birthday to Alan, Lilian and Peter who all celebrated their birthdays on 10th May!
