Three residents had their wish come true last week with a trip to the seaside. Activities Co-Ordinator Steph Ashton, organised a trip to Bridlington for a number of residents after Sylvia and Edna said they wanted to go to the seaside for the day. Deciding which beach to visit was an easy choice once Charlie said he wanted to watch the boats and visit a café he used to go to with his wife where they always made him a special breakfast. After a little walk along the promenade reminiscing about previous trips to the seaside the day was finished off with an ice-cream in the sun.
In other news there are a number of green fingered residents within the home who have won prizes at the recent Ross show! Margaret’s cucumbers have become legendary within the home and she won 1st prize with them for the second year in a row. Sylvia won 3rd prize with her posy and Sue won 2nd prize with her arrangement in a stemmed wine glass. Not wanting to be outdone, Steph also won with her flower arrangement entry. The Magdalen Chickens’ eggs were entered for the first time and won…. so we now have award chickens which people can visit when they come to the home! Magdalen Park flower arranging club meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 1.30 and everyone is welcome!
