We had a wonderful
afternoon in to early evening as we were blessed with the beautiful weather.
Sue our singer/entertainer was just finishing her last song when
the heavens opened and everyone dashed into the home. As we were
also celebrating 25 Years of Caring for the Elderly at Lawton Manor a special
Birthday cake was made for the occasion. We all sang Happy Birthday to Lawton
Manor and May Bradley, a resident who has been in the home since 2002
blew out all 25 candles followed by lots of cheers. Everyone said
how much they had enjoyed the whole event.
A full coach of residents, family and staff traveled
to West Midlands Safari Park with picnic packed and lots of drinks. We
watched the sea lions perform showing off their diving and jumps followed by a
drive through the park to see the wonderful wild animals. As usual the
giraffe’s were a favorite especially because we had saved lots of bananas to
hand feed them through the sky-light on the coach. The lions and tigers
lazed in the sun and the hippos quite happily rolled over in the muddy
water ignoring everyone around them.
