Resident, Jean Gurrs daughter Janet, did a great job with face painting, this went down a treat with the youngsters - they looked really cute. Pictured Jean, who likes to join in with almost all the activities.

Pauline, Administration Manager , did well raising money on the Tombola.

A total of £300's was raised for the Residents fund - didnt they do well!

Activities Coordinator, Trayce, who helped organise the fare did a grand job with the raffle, helping to boost funds.

Singer Amy Bird delighted all those who heard her lovely voice as she sang to all, she really was well appreciated.

The lovely friendly Melbourne House staff who helped make this event happen.

 

Theres always lots of activities at Melbourne House, but residents do like it when all the visitors come along to their home & of course the marvellous singing.

Accolades received  -

on Good Morning Britain - a feature on Nursing Homes

One of our relatives took the trouble to phone to praise Melbourne House and the staff within the home and to get her point over....'that NOT all homes are bad and certainly not Melbourne House' That is so good to hear, we are very pleased.

& Further thanks were received from a local Academy ……….

……for offering a student placement recently by Care Home Manager, Kate Wilson;
I have received fantastic feedback from  our student about the time they spent with you. Thank you for taking the time to support her, many of our students who attended a work experience placement returned with a more positive, mature and focussed approach to their studies.
As an Academy we feel that work experience is an extremely valuable opportunity for our students and this wouldn't be possible without the offer of placements from companies and organisations such as Melbourne House. Thank you for your support

Care Home Manager, Kate Wilson felt,  'it was good to get the participation of the relatives and the residents love all the activity. It was a shame we didnt have the best weather this year.'

 

Thank you goes to all the kind people & local businesses that donated prizes and produce, making this a worthy event at Melbourne House.
