The Sun shone brightly and the garden looked inviting for our Easter Party.
The Easter bunny had left paw prints from the front door through to The Garden Room so the children & adults knew that the Easter eggs had been delivered, and no matter how well the eggs had been hidden, those children could sniff that chocolate out! The children's laughter filled the air as did the noise of our visiting farmyard. True to their word, the mobile Farm Experience arrived with two calves, two Pigs, two Lambs and a goat along with Chickens & Chicks.
As Darren sang his Rock 'N' Roll songs our residents enjoyed the music & the sunshine outside in the garden and patio, drinking and eating, many were wearing their Easter bonnets.
Children & residents held the chicks and petted the animals, the experience bringing back memories and stories of childhood.
The whole afternoon was bright and cheerful and once a gin our residents had a very social time.
£77 was raised through our raffle, so Thank You very much to those who bought tickets and donated prizes. The money raised will go towards the residents fund and Debbie has already got her eye on some sound and scent sensory activity sets from Active Minds, a company who design, test and sell products specifically for the needs of the older generation.
