Keeping Cool at Melbourne House, Aspley

.........With Gaming and Gospel singers

 'a busy week at Melbourne during lounge mornings. Everything from gospel singer's to nice clean nail care; Crosswords, reminiscing group, table tennis and cards. And lots of lovely ice lollies.'

Nothing like a game of BIG CARDS, to help the concentration...

& some gospel music to help relax in the heat....

Ice lollies help the thought process too.....

A little pampering doesnt go amiss and some hand care does make one feel looked after.

Earlier in the month when animals came to visit.... Never a dull moment...

 

 

Well done Activities Coordinator Trayce keeping everyone busy, even though you may've got hot under the collar yourself.
