    Our first event of the year will be a fundraising event for the residents’ fund. Residents and their families will enjoy a pie and pea supper, along with a homemade winter broth for starters. Afterwards a delicious range of flavoured coffees and tea will be served. We will also be having prizes and games and small donations are gratefully accepted.

    As our residents are avid fans of Abba and musicals they will be enjoying a trip to see the new Mama Mia movie in the next couple of weeks.

    Most evening residents like to be creative and with the help from staff will be making decorations of a winter theme for our winter warmer evening.
