We have had an extremely busy May so far, starting with a community trip to Jordans Mill, which is just a short 10-minute drive from our care home in Bedfordshire.
Our residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Mill, where they learned all about its history, the production of flour, and its journey to creating cereals that are much-loved by many. Following this, our residents enjoyed some well-deserved tea, cake, and refreshments. The mill's picturesque setting right by the River Ivel made for some great wildlife watching too.
We would like to say a massive thank you to our driver David, one of our volunteers, Jackie, and to the Jordans Mill staff for being so helpful, and kind and enabling our trip to happen.
Back at our care home, we recently welcomed Adele, who held a pilates class for our residents. The session was a lot of fun with many of our residents feeling very enthusiastic about the activity. it was a great opportunity for our residents to get some light activity, whilst concentrating on the exercises.
We also had the pleasure of our ducklings who arrived in their incubator and as a home, we have been watching them hatch and grow into wonderful little ducklings. They have brought our residents a lot of joy, looking after them and petting them.
One of our main highlights this month was our Coronation Day Celebrations for the appointment of the new King, Charles 3rd. As well as a screening of the coronation, we had entertainment in the morning by Malcolm, as well as in the afternoon by Phil who is an Elton John tribute act. Residents, relatives, and staff had a wonderful day and we were spoilt with wonderful food from the kitchen.
On Monday 8th May, we supported volunteers in our community of Biggleswade with their Big Help Out Project by litter picking locally. Residents thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in our local community and really helped to make them feel like valued members.
It has been a busy month for us so far, with much more to come. We look forward to sharing more special moments with our residents, relatives, staff, and members of our local community.
