The sun may not have shone but that didn't stop the fun at St Michael's.The party just moved indoors!!
Our Garden Room was decorated with everything British & from the 1940's- Union Jacks, bunting, flags & pictures from the era- pin -ups, Actors, Entertainers, Royalty & advertising photos. Strawberries & Cream and delicious scones were on offer together with Pimm's & cocktails appropriately named 'Vera Lynn' and 'Gracie Fields'.The singing Duo "Hotsy Totsy", in bright 1940's dresses kicked off the Party.
Our residents dressed up in hats, bow-ties and silly glasses, waved their flags and tooted their blowers!!! staff members were appropriately dressed in floral aprons and headscarves, making sure glasses were filled and cream teas served.
The music and singing lead to reminiscing and story telling. The "Hotsy Totsy" girls were very good at keeping to the theme and ensured a good old sing-a-long.
During the afternoon, the sounds of an Ice-cream van could be heard.......Ice-Creams for everyone! A big Thank You to Nick & Sarah for providing over 60 ice-creams from their van.
As the afternoon drew to a close brown paper bags were handed out - Sweet Rations! It was such a fun afternoon, the room filled with music, singing, conversation and laughter.
St Michael's knows how to Party.

“I cannot rate this care home any higher than excellent. Both my parents were residents and the care, dignity and personal care was outstanding. As a family we were very pleased we used St Michael's as it was incredibly comforting knowing that we had made the right decision to use St Michael's. The personal touch of the treatment both my parents received was amazing and the way the family was treated was incredible. The staff were outstanding and so thoughtful at all times. I cannot say thank you enough for everything they did. The building was so clean and immaculate, you did not feel you were in a care home, more like a hotel. Thank you again.”

“The end of life care my mother received was excellent, the staff are caring and treated the whole family with dignity during the last weeks of my mother's life. I would highly recommend this amazing nursing home and cannot say anything else but "thank you" for everything.”
