Summer fun at Atfield House

21st August 2007

Residents of Atfield House have enjoyed a number of summer events.

Fifteen female residents participated in a fashion show for ladies' day on June 21st, designing and modelling their own hats for the occasion.

Organiser Valery Ford said the day had been "a great team effort".

"We even had a horse racing game where everyone could have a little gamble, although we kept it legal by using Monopoly money," she said.

"Our head chef laid on a special ladies' day lunch for the occasion and everyone had a wonderful time with Pimms to wash it down.

"Everyone looked great and the pictures have been put up around the home."

Then on July 14th, the care home's annual summer fair had a pirate theme, which saw relatives and residents dressed for the high seas.

Kevin Whately opened the fair, with entertainment from a local amateur dramatic society, a variety of stalls and refreshments which included doughnuts and Jamaican ginger cake.

Local firefighters popped in for an hour to have cream tea with the residents.

Atfield House finished the month with the good news that resident Noreen Dennis' tomatoes had been chosen for the Best Resident's Garden Project category in the Barchester in Bloom competition.
