There's always lots happening at Canal Vue and especially with National Care Home Day this month, when you're invited to join us, we have a double visit from The Mayor, councillor Mary Hopkinson;

As Care Home Open Day’s emphasis is on the importance of connecting with local communities, developing lasting relationships and encouraging intergenerational rapport, the theme for this year will be “Friendship”


Visit us at Canal Vue, For National Care Home Day

We invite you to come and take a look at our warm welcoming care home,

beside the Erewash Canal.

• 14th June, The Mayor, Councillor Mrs Mary Hopkinson, attends Resident’s 70th

Platinum Anniversary at 3pm, with Musical Entertainment, Tea & cakes

• 15th June, Cup Cake Day in aid of Alzheimer’s Society the Lady Mayor visits.

A Platinum wedding Anniversary is celebrated on our National Care Home Day with a special exclusive lunch planned for our  couple (70 Years) Joan and Cyril, and later tea with all their friends at Canal Vue and the popular entertainer, Banjo Man (at 2pm.) and a visit from the Mayor.


Residents get busy as flower arranging involves preparing and selecting - the ladies really concentrtate and are pleased with their productivity and gentleman too.

Managing Director of Eastgate Care, Janine Morgan said ‘Friendship at our care homes is one of the key elements that enables us to develop relationships and work together as a team and as friends and carers of our residents. Friendship is the theme for this year’s National Care Home Day, it is good to emphasise the importance of this part of care, to acknowledge the work of care homes throughout the UK and the dedication of staff offering their special support. Our support of the Spondon Dynamos highlights how intergenerational rapport can bring benefits all round’

Hucknall British Legion share News and Weapons

RBL Hucknall came and entertained & informed our residents:-

The Royal British Legion gentleman on their annual visit and chat, plus war memorabilia.

Derek seems keen on the firearms - not loaded!

Eileen and Derek enjoy learning about how poppies are made and other interesting stories.

Eleanor is not pointing the gun at her head, merely checking it for weight, she is doing well holding it up, they are surprisingly heavy & of course a cup of tea at the ready!

Thanks to our visitors from RBL Hucknall for sharing their knowledge and making it lively and different for our residents at Alexandra House.
