Chorleywood residents go back to school

6th March 2007

Residents at a Hertfordshire care home dressed up in their finest uniforms and let their hair down at a back to school party yesterday.

Chorleywood Beaumont was transformed into a haven of nostalgia, complete with lollipops, balloons and doughnuts, as residents and staff fondly discussed memories of the old school days.

"It was so good to see all the residents having a fabulous time at the event," said the home's general manager, Shaun Canavan.

"I'm so relieved that no-one ended up in detention!"

The school nurse was also inundated with treatment requests while the tea monitor was "busy as a bee" with all the extra cups of tea.

Last month, cupids arrow fell on Chorleywood for a Valentine's Day ball. Residents enjoyed Bucks Fizz and partied on to the music provided by saxophonist Roger Pride.

"This is the best afternoon in house since I've been at the Beaumont," said one resident who has been at Chorleywood for over six years.
