PC Farah comes to visit

PC Farah had caught wind of the wonderful work we have been doing for the elderly residents living in our local community and wanted to stop by to say hello to the staff and residents at Badgeworth Court. She was extremely impressed with the home and has agreed to come to deliver a talk about her role in the community at one of our weekly Wednesday tea parties. We let her know that she is always welcome to stop by for fresh cakes and a coffee whenever she has the time. We look forward to seeing her again soon!

Victorian Christmas market

We all wrapped up warm to head over to the Victorian Christmas market at Gloucester docks. The sounds and smells were fantastic! The residents enjoyed tasting all of the food samples on the way around. Each stall holder was extremely pleased to see us and treated our residents like celebrities, posing for photographs and chatting (in character) about Victorian life. We were given some beautiful hot chestnuts from a kind-hearted stall holder and the residents enjoyed tasting a myriad of different flavors of Turkish delight.  We sat watching the children on the outdoor ice-rink as we sipped on beautiful hot cappuccinos. A fabulous day was had by all!

Remembrance trip to the Cathedral

We are extremely lucky at Badgeworth to live within 20 minutes drive of one of the countries most stunning cathedrals. Gloucester cathedral often goes above and beyond for remembrance day and this year was no exception. The poppy displays were exquisite and we all thoroughly enjoyed reading the wonderful stories from older veterans that were displayed around the cathedral. It was a fantastic day and we look forward to visiting the cathedral again to see the Christmas displays next month.

Flower arranging

Flower Arranging is a regular activity held here at Badgeworth, which our residents love. Today our residents got stuck straight in, they loved the smell of the fresh flowers and putting them into the vase of water. One of the residents particularly loved the yellow roses and liked the feel of the petals on her face. We played a 60's soundtrack in the background which the residents couldn't help but sing along to while they worked.

Open day celebrations "40's and forces"

Our 1940's themed open day was wonderful. We had a fantastic turn out with many friends and family coming to join in the celebrations as well as local people coming to have a tour of our home. Our vintage tea room was decorated in traditional "street party style" with replica 1940's newspapers, household leaflets and ration books. The wartime memorabilia brought back memories for the residents especially the vintage "Kit-Kat" chocolate bar wrapper. We had a Glen Miller tribute band come to perform called "Moonlight serenade", which made the atmosphere even more electric. The residents enjoyed listening to the classics and could be heard laughing to the jokes down the corridor told by the band. Jacek our chef created a fantastic buffet with pork pies, scotch eggs, pickled onions, mini quiches, cupcakes and a cheese platter which all went down a treat. Jacek even used old tuna and corned beef tins as the serving pots to give it a real wartime feel. our open day was a huge success and we look forward to seeing everyone at our Cheese and wine evening on 20th November at 6pm.
