Our dated conservatory was knocked down and has been replaced with a brick-built extension. It means we now have a lovely new lounge area, so the noise and dust were definitely worth it! The new lounge is just receiving some finishing touches, so we’re all looking forward to enjoying the new room soon.
To escape the noise, we took the residents out for lunch a couple of times to the Shepherd and Dog. We are always made very welcome there and the desserts are scrummy.
To raise money for the residents’ future outings and treats, we held a coffee morning for residents and their families. Karen baked delicious homemade cakes, including; banana cake, yoghurt cake and apricot cake. They were a real hit with everyone!
We also held a raffle, with donated prizes including a rather posh bottle of sparkling wine, chocolates, glasses and toiletry gift sets. We raised a very impressive £100. Now to plan the trips we can use the money for.
