Woodspring House

We had a great day today celebrating! A huge thank you to all the staff who made the event happen. And another huge thank you to Ken who sang from the car park. The bunting was lent by Wells Carnival, the cake stands from Bang Café. We had the swing music playing too so the scene was set for a street party in the garden to remember. Tricia said "it took me back to when I was 10 years old and all the mums down my street were busy all morning making cakes and decorating." Staff members Marissa Faima and Jodie Prior really looked the part dressed as Land Army girls. Lisa said “We had an absolutely brilliant day. It was all about celebrating VE day and not worrying about what is happening in the outside world. Memories of VE day made it emotional for some but everyone loved it.”

Easter is here! Woodspring House was given a kind donation of chocolate eggs from Morrisons. The residents opened their Easter Cards and tucked into some Easter Eggs (although they were gone so quick we didn't get a chance to take a photo)! Happy Easter from everyone at Woodspring House to all family and friends. We miss you but look forward to seeing you soon.

Who said a virus would bring us down? We might be locked inside but that hasn't stopped the fun and games at Woodspring House. It was movie afternoon so we watched Dirty Dancing. There was a lot of singing and everyone enjoyed the music. The ladies in particular enjoyed the main man, Mr. Swayze and his handsome good looks and great moves. We also had time to play musical bingo with some classic tunes from the eras. Which sparked a sing-a-long.

Last week before we closed our doors to visitors we celebrated Betty's birthday. Karl came in to entertain and Betty greatly enjoyed the celebration. We also had a special chat club in honour of fair-trade fortnight. We discussed cocoa beans, how and where they are produced and grown and the sad reality that most cocoa growers live in poverty - so buy fair-trade! We watched a video and did some chocolate tasting (yum!). Chilu also showed us how to wear a headscarf in the African style and some people had a go on the drum.
