The Summer Garden Party

At the end of August we hosted our family friendly garden party on "The Legion's" lawn. There were games for all ages, Pimms for the adults and Janet's husband Danny made trays of delicious cakes! It was a hot British day so thankfully we had the party tent to keep us nicely shaded. Sing a long music was provided by Ken and his ukulele. Thanks to everyone for coming out and joining us!

Eric's 102nd birthday and Norfolk Day

Last week we had an extravaganza of a day! All in one day we had Eric's 102nd birthday, it was Norfolk Day which we celebrated with some Pimms and we had the Banjo Man in with his jolly and uplifting tunes. A huge Happy Birthday to Eric who is 102! What an amazing feat! Eric was quite emotional about receiving his cake and birthday wishes which he got from all the staff and residents. To celebrate Norfolk Day we got the Pimms out and had a little summer time drink. We also had the Banjo Man in. As usual he was fantastic and his uplifting country tunes got everyone dancing and clapping along.

Marie's Birthday

We had Marie's birthday's last week. We had to improvise the entertainment for Marie's birthday but it didn't matter as we had so much fun anyway! We got to be the DJ for the afternoon choosing the songs that we love to hear. Happy Birthday Marie!
