Lashbrook enjoyed their Summer Fete in the sunshine. We had a shop, an art stall, an Avon stall, a cake stall, also Daphne Stoddard had a stall for Parkinson’s. Robert Stoddard (one of our residents), is a very good artist and she sold cards in aid of this very good charity. Elvis sang to all the residents. There was some dancing and singing all afternoon. The Mayor of Henley attended with her Escort. David, he amused everyone with his magic tricks as he is a member of the magic circle. The Tombola which was run by our volunteer, totally sold out. Our raffle with all prizes donated from Henley shops, was very successful. All resident’s families commented on what an enjoyable day. Also the Mayor made a speech and said this is a lovely care home, the atmosphere is so jolly and the residents look very happy.
Dave and Loui the Chef at Lashbrook put on a delicious barbeque, with mixed continental salads, followed by cheesecake and fresh fruit salads.
The M.S. art class also had a display of pictures painted by the M.S. group and our residents. This promotes very good social interaction whilst everyone joins in with the painting theme.
