Christmas comes to Moreton Hill

Staff and residents have been hard at work like Santas little elves to ensure that this years tree beats all previous years efforts.  Every tree decoration has been lovingly handmade by our residents with a little help from the team.  Once the decorations had been completed, residents Moira and Dorothy decorated the tree and did a wonderful job!  Richard, the local rector blessed the tree in an official 'Lighting Up Ceremony' and everyone who has seen the tree so far says it's our best yet!

Flipping Marvellous! Moreton Hill celebrates in pantastic style!

On Tuesday 12 February, residents and staff at Moreton Hill enjoyed a day of festive food and fun for Shrove Tuesday and Mardi Gras. Everyone got involved making carnival masks that were displayed in the dining room and reception area for visitors, residents and staff to enjoy. Lots of glitter, feathers and bright colours were used to create the masks. There is definitely some hidden artistic talent in deepest Gloucestershire! On the day, the dining area was decorated with balloons and streamers and the chefs created a special lunchtime menu of King Prawn Jambalay, Cajun Chicken and Key Lime Pie for Mardi Gras and of course, pancakes for Shrove Tuesday! In the afternoon, the residents enjoyed flipping the homemade pancakes and seeing who could get the most flips without dropping the pancake. Elizabeth was one of many who had obviously had a bit of past practise! Pictured here is Moira, Dorothy and Nancy have a flip!
