Ross Court has been involved in a Tour of Europe Week as a
lead up to The National Care Home day.
The aim was to Link the home, Ross Court, and the community with the world outside and
bring people together by making connections with the community.
The tour began on Monday with a bus trip to Spain, followed by
Italy, Germany, Holland, and on Friday, France. Each day the Residents were in
a different country and each day they sampled delicacies from the country and
delicious typical meals ranging from
Spanish Omelettes to Coq au Vin with desserts ranging from Tiramisu to
Pear belle Helene all produced by the Catering Manager, Brenda Goulding.
entertainers included William Hazelton with a delightful tour of Holland and
Europe which was won by Mrs Sheila Reynolds with Mrs Margaret Merrick and Mrs
Shirley Gemmell as runners up.
The week culminated in a cocktail party in Paris
with friends, families and the Mayor of Ross, Mr Chris Bartrum, joining the
frolics and romantic music from the viola player, Sarah Emery.
Memories were revived, conversations profuse. The staff on
duty added to the atmosphere with costumes and colours of the countries. It was
an excellent week and involved the community.
