Regatta Visit and Ukulele Lesson for Lashbrook House Care Home

 

Lashbrook joined in with the Regatta for the Disabled an event which was started at Phyllis Court 8 years ago. Lashbrook residents had a Ukulele  lesson from Sam Brown, daughter of the famous Joe Brown. She was so thoughtful and came over to us after having a lesson with many others. Wynn Fulbrook took a shine the Ukulele, Sam gave us one to take back to the Lashbrook. The residents were treated to free boat rides along where the annual Henley regatta takes place. Marie Turtle said ‘I am use to boats’ she climbed over quite a few obstacles, with help, to get on to an open boat. Other residents were taken on the River time Cruiser specially designed for the elderly and disabled. We strolled over to the animals and watched Punch and Judy. Sheila Mitchell said ‘What a wonderful afternoon, so relaxing’. Tamaz who is a carer at Lashbrook, said ‘really good fun’.

 

Wynn said ‘ I didn’t know I could still have so much fun’.
