Lashbrook was transformed into the Ritz Hotel. The Henley College Students, who are helping with events at Lashbrook, organised all the printing of scenes of the Ritz Hotel, which were placed around the dining room. Henley Cancer Research let me hire lots of hats, from them for the afternoon. This caused some excitement, as the residents could choose which hat they would like to wear for the afternoon. Roger our pianist was dressed in his correct attire for the occasion. Quite a few of the ladies looked admiringly, as he played for two hours non stop. Delicate chocolates were served with the first cup of tea. Then everyone was served finely cut sandwiches, beautiful cakes and fresh fruit. Rosie Brett was singing the whole time and making actions with her hands. Joan Lewis commented ‘it’s nice to go posh, we have never done this before’. The families remarked they were very appreciative of the hard work that went into this day. They said if was a lovely afternoon.
This was a real team effort yesterday everyone helped.
