All Lashbrook residents, took part in line dancing, in the chair. Everyone wore cowboy hats and got into the spirit of the cowboy theme. Very good co-ordination was expressed with hand and feet movements. A display of line dancing was given by Janice, then we encouraged the residents to take part. ‘Catherine Hare’ a new resident at Lashbrook, who normally has an afternoon nap, was interested to take part with her daughter. Her daughter thanked us for doing such inventive activities.
Harold and Margaret Fitch celebrated their 62nd Wedding Anniversary at Lashbrook. Hilary their daughter was thrilled and thanked us all for making it such a special day for her parents. Vicki presented flowers, whilst Margaret and Harold drank Champagne. We had their favorite music playing – The Anniversary Waltz. What a huge inspiration, we wish you many more happy years.
Lashbrook celebrated the proms. Everyone sang ‘There will always be an England’ ‘Land of hope and glory’ amongst other songs on the piano. Fresh scones and jam and cream were served for the occasion. All the residents were singing waving flags and their interaction was very responsive, Queenie one of the resident’s, commented ‘ I so enjoyed that celebration, it took me back to traditional English celebrations.
