Activities at our home

Celebrating French Day!
Tennyson Wharf celebrated French Day yesterday. Everyone dressed up and Zoe, our amazing Activities Coordinator arranged some fantastic activities for our residents and staff to get involved in.
In the morning we had a French quiz followed by 'Bat the Garlic' with a French baguette and then our fabulous kitchen provided us with some mouth watering French themed food and we ended the day with an Eiffel Tower making competition and then Zoe finished the day with a Mime to be guessed by our residents!
Overall today was a brilliant day at Tennyson!

Fresh Delivery just in time for our Fresh Smoothie Day!
We were so thankful for the kind donation of fresh fruit and vegetables that we received from Nathan Willows Fresh Produce Home Deliveries yesterday.
Yesterday was National Smoothie day and with the generosity from Nathan, we celebrated that by making our own smoothies full of goodness.
The fruit was wonderfully fresh and delicious and gave us the energy we needed for our seated yoga session as it was also International Yoga Day yesterday!
This charming shop is a family business that is full to the brim with the freshest and tastiest fruit and vegetables. Ideally situated and even has delivery options available!
We feel lucky to have such supportive businesses local to us.
Thank you so much Nathan Willows Fresh Produce
