National Scrabble Day!

National Scrabble Day!

Today, residents and staff at Magnolia Court marked National Scrabble Day hosting a day-long tournament to decide their ultimate Scrabble Star. Everyone enjoyed a game of Scrabble and some of our residents came up with new and improved ways to increase their letter and word scores. They have the most amazing vocabularies!

Our Resident Ambassador Bill said that it challenged him but he thoroughly enjoyed it.

We also read a back story on who created scrabble and why we celebrated on the 13th April as it was to honor the birthday of Alfred Mosher Butts.

Magnolia Court Marks world health day!

Magnolia Court Marks world health day!

Staff and residents at Magnolia Court have been marking World Health Day by taking part in a range of different activities to promote good health.

World Health Day took place on Thursday 7th April. The idea behind the day is to shine a light on the benefits of good health and wellbeing around the whole world. Each year, World Health Day has a different focus - the theme for 2022 is ‘Our planet, our health.’ The World Health Organisation is asking: are we able to reimagine a world where clean air, water and food are available to all? Where economies are focused on health and wellbeing?

The staff and residents got into the spirit of the day by trying different fruits and vegetables and learning their beneficial properties. Our head chef and his team made delicious dishes for us to try and residents had a go at making some delicious smoothies and fruit kebabs.
