Victoria's Hen Party

With only a week to go before the big day, Victoria wanted to celebrate with the family at Woodspring House. We put our sashes, fairy wings and crowns on and got on the dance floor! Carl dressed as Elvis and played a collection of different songs and we even had the pleasure of Lisa on karaoke. The big day is tomorrow, Congratulations Victoria!

Alzheimer's Week: Making Cupcakes

To raise money for The Alzheimer's Society we had a cupcake decorating day! The residents and staff got creative to make some delicious looking treats which we put in the entrance to raise £18 for The Alzheimer's Society. Thank you to everyone that bought one!

Magda's 90th Birthday

Last week Magda turned 90 and to celebrate we had a party at Woodspring House. The entertainment was provided by Barry Bryant who played some tunes on the piano and Magda's family came in to celebrate with her. To celebrate Magda's amazing life there were pictures from her life and the party ended by singing a Polish song together. Happy Birthday Magda!!

Chat club: Dressing up

As Ascot is on at the moment we thought it would be fitting to share with you our chat club session from last week. We focussed on dressing up, so Donna got out her dressing up box and we had fun wearing some of the more unusual items in there; especially the hats! Do you think we could win best dressed at Ascot?
