Olympic Opening Ceremony – BQ Lunch

posted by: Ashcroft, on 27th July 2012

To celebrate the Olympic opening ceremony we had an Olympics themed day today.  The lounge is currently decorated with international flags, as well GB bunting and Olympic rings. 

We started the day with the official 2012 Olympic quiz, had a BQ lunch, followed by our first sport, hoopball.  Over the next couple of weeks we will be doing various sports like football goals, darts, can shooting, and skittles.  Residents and staff have also chosen a country to represent, and we plan to tally up the medals, with a prize at the end of the three weeks for the person who’s country receives the most medals.  Keep updated with the pictures in our photo gallery.

Chris Clark, Singer and Musician

posted by: Ashcroft, on 14th July 2012

Chris Clark came to perform for us Monday 16th, in the afternoon.  Chris performed songs by Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, and 40’s sing-along classics.  As well as singing, Chris included various trumpet solos into his performance.  He was very talented and gave a brilliant performance, enjoyed by everyone.  It was really nice to have live music with songs not always performed regulary.  Take a look at our photo gallery for pictures.
