Weather Forces National Care Home Open Days Indoors

Everyone is wondering when the summer will arrive, but planned summer activities for National Care Home Day continued despite the awful weather! Both Alexandra House at Eastwood and Melbourne House at Aspley were blighted by the weather and had to move planned entertainment indoors;

As always a good spread of food was available for the residents at Alex House on their open day.

 

 

 

Tombola, raffle and some stalls complimented the entertainment, residents like doing a bit of 'home shopping' at their Eastwood residence

 

 

Resident Monica at Melbourne House enjoys the music, participates and concentrates on playing the tambourine.

Staff enjoy a bit of party time - sharing - as well.

Fish Friday & a Fine Sunny day at Canal Vue

No wonder it is popular at Canal Vue....................................especially on Fridays;

 I was checking out the view from the sunny patio when the waft of Fish n Chips caught my attention. There must be a chip shop nearby I thought, then I was reliably informed that it was Fish Fridays at Canal Vue - so I had to 'check out' the kitchen ....................................

The tow path is looking lovely for a stroll, with the trees just coming into leaf - a great place to 'stop n stare'.

 

 

The serious business of dipping the fish in John's special beer batter.

 

 Kitchen Assistants; Alison and Laura, preparing the choices to accompany the fish; mash or chips, garden peas or mushy. I forgot to ask what was for dessert - there's always choice for the residents.

 

Resident Michael, looking jolly in the stripy top with his visitor Kay (who was dying to get out and do some tidying up of the pots on the patio - volunteers most welcome to help! with the gardening.....) No doubt looking forward to his F & C lunch.

Part of the super friendly  Canal Vue team, who obliged with numerous photos during the morning.

Pictured; Jodie, Larraine, Kayleigh, Ann, Megan, Wendy and Margena.

 Just a cup of tea for me please. Eveleena with the tea trolley.

   

A lovely sunny day by the Erewash Canal.
