The Alexandra House Care Home summer fair made its stunning come-back with great success.
Starting off the event, an emotional memorial service remembering those lost during the Covid-19 pandemic, following which residents, their families, staff and friends took the opportunity to socialise and catch up in the pleasant surroundings of the care home’s garden.
The Town Mayor Cllr Susan Bagshaw arrived with her husband to judge the dog show, before having a go on the tombola and seeing an old friend, former Town Mayor Patrick Hamilton who is now a resident here at Alexandra House.
Soak the staff was a massive success and everybody (especially the children) enjoyed throwing wet sponges and buckets of water at Activities Coordinator Matt and Housekeeper Denise; who through selflessly placing themselves in the stocks for a soaking, raised over £450 pounds for the home’s residents’ fund.
Organised and developed by Matt Corpe, the Activities Coordinator, at Alexandra House, had this to say: “Despite the not so summery weather it was genuinely lovely to see some old faces as relatives came to the memorial service and remember the residents we have sadly lost over the last 18 months. There were tears, but there was also laughter as I shared some of my memories, this was followed by everybody releasing a balloon after reciting a poem together ‘we let you go’.
“Thanks goes to everybody that attended, staff at Alexandra House for their support leading to and on the day of the event, and the businesses that donated prizes as follows;
Trinity Farm Shop Annie’s Allotment
The Mallard Pitcher and Piano
