The Sport Relief sponsored mile

On Friday the residents, staff and relatives braved the cold to complete the Sport Relief sponsored mile! The group managed to raise an impressive £80 while out on the walk, so we are currently over £130 raised and climbing. Congrats and a huge well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to everyone who helped out on the day. Here are some pictures of the days antics. If you would like to donate please do so on our Givingpage, the link is here: https://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/woodspring-house

Betty's birthday!

On the 3rd of March we celebrated Betty's birthday in a joyous celebration of singing and dancing. We had a wonderful performance from the Banjo man, who got everyone up and dancing in our new orangery. I think the pictures speak for themselves.


That's a big grin! Betty with her cake.

Merriment and Miming

In this cold weather we've kept the merriment inside, but that's not difficult when you have staff and residents like ours! In Tuesday's chat club Chloe and Julia did a miming performance. Flamingoes, penguins and Pauline and Julia as a couple of sharks... could you tell?!
