Sizzling Summer Fayre - First for Canal Vue
 

Crowds gathered for the first Canal Vue Summer Fayre, and the large car park provided a great space for a range of stalls, fire crew & engine, fashion show and dancing.

 

 

 

Staff & family parade in the lively fashion show in their 1920's-80's gear and once again the car park made a great cat walk area to strut their stuff for the fashion show.

The good weather ensured that lots of ice cream was eaten and visitors were able to feast on BBQ food and a range of other snacks.

Plenty of buying opportunities and dancing from Lauries School of Dance, kept everyone entertained.

Residents, family and friends enjoyed all the activity and it made a very busy day out at this lovely canal-side location.

 

Thanks to families and staff who gave generously, to make this a splendid occasion.

Our local community got involved, the local Robins gave the loan of their car park and the money raised goes towards the residents special funds.

D Day Celebrations with All the Gear at Park House!

Residents were treated to a whole display of authentic army gear as part of the Park House Celebrations;

 

One of our newest residents Marion, invited her son Jonathan Whyley to come share his interest in World War II memorabilia with the other residents.

Care Home Manager Marie Duke-Parker tries the gun for size and resident Pat is delighted to join in and pose with Jonathan.

Senior Carer Andrew Good gets ready for the D Day Celebrations at Park House, as he prepares to share some genuine props with the residents. Andrew used to garden for a Flight Engineer who worked on the Lancaster Bombers in India, he then donated the gear.

This proved to be a great reminiscence day for many to share memories, looking at pictures and army gear, as they recalled their days in action or what they were doing in Nottingham at the time of the D Day landings. Andrews own father was in the parachute regiment and landed in France.

Below, Andrew checks out the rifle.

A great display of mementos of the war created a lot of interest for the residents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tables looked great as the residents enjoyed their D Day tea party.

They were further engaged by entertainer Colin Jackson with songs from the bygone era and of course Vera Lyn 'numbers' were very popular.

Right Pat joins in the dancing, Andrew shows that he can not only 'Care', but dance as well!
