Eastwood Easter Bonnets at Alexandra House

They like dressing up and having 'proper tea' and also some music ......

Eleanor, our oldest resident (102 years) at Alexandra House, is enjoying wearing her Easter Bonnet, which she made herself. She had good training as she was in service to royalty. 

Other ladies like to have tea in style wearing their bonnets....

Eileen and George Hands also like getting the China out  and having proper tea, which includes chocolate eclairs!

And of course a little music accompaniment, resident Norah plays for the other resident and they are able to sing along to 'red red robin' and 'easter bonnets' 

Music is a frequent occurence here, as Stewart comes along monthly, to play and the residents enjoy the jolly atmosphere he creates with his playing.

Getting Crafty at Melbourne House - Aspley

Residents show just how creative they can be:

Activity Coordinator Trayce Pullen got organised with lots of materials, wool, pictures, cut outs, etc to stimulate the residents on their creative day.

 

Our ladies below, show that concentration is key when dealing with wool!

This lady shows how she can master this delicate operation, which looks very involved - we would love to know what the outcome is!

These psychedelic flowers resulted from some of the creativity.  It's good to have a bright finished output like this.


 

Another artistic activity involved carefully painting in stencils for a Cinderella dress.

The Cinderella Dress is to be displayed in a glass case at Nottingham train station.

Has anyone seen it?

Once again concentration and accuracy is required.

Melbourne House - A place called home to many and now a creative centre in Aspley!

After their artistic afternoon in, it is rewarding to get out and go to an afternoon Tea Dance. Pauline and Jean  enjoy the change of scene and some tea too.

Spring Sowing and Skittles at Alexandra House

Residents prepare for spring and exert their gardening flair when local school children bring in pansies

Girls and boys from Year 8  Priory School, Eastwood  came to visit, not only did they sing some lovely Easter songs, they all came along with a lovely pansy each, that they presented to a resident upon leaving.

 We thanked them with a little gift of sweets tied up with ribbon and an Easter sticker on it which they were all over the moon with!

Later on June and other residents potted the pansies up for the garden and some for the lounge window so that the residents can watch them grow

.

Keen gardener Alan joined us at Alex a few weeks ago and continues his planting ardour with some prize Begonias his sister bought him.

The residents love to play indoor skittles, below George alongside his wife Eileen, going for a strike! 

Joan and Mavis also getting in the mood of things, Joan looks like she is about to deliver a 'pearler' there, while Mavis is a bit nonchalant, no doubt she is waiting for something a little more creative!

 

Life is good with lots of activities to share at Alexandra House, Eastwood.

Belle Vue Planting and Punch

 A range of activities provide stimulation, rounding up with cocktails - some were as 'pleased as punch'

Hurrah for a bit of action, chair zumba or marracas, it does you good..... Some prefer a quiet bit of planting.......
.................after a busy day at Belle Vue a little fruit punch is welcome. Its all down to teamwork which makes for a happy home and contented residents.

We look forward to some warmer weather to get out into the Belle Vue Garden, a great space for activities.

Girls go Green for St Pats Day

Irish Eyes were smiling as Mary sings some good old Irish songs for the residents at Alexandra House.

Ethel and her sister dressed up in the traditional Green colour for us and had pictures taken with Nora and Doris.

Mary pictured with George in his special Irish tie.

We do like a good cup of tea in a china cup, after all that entertainment.

Fresh cream cakes go down well too, as George gives the thumbs up - it was a lovely afternoon

Good times at Alex House, a place called home to a big family of residents!
