Marjorie's Trip to the Riding Stables!

Jo Jo used to go horse riding every Friday however hasn’t had the confidence to get back on in over a year. Jo Jo wrote on our wishing tree that she would like to go back down and potentially start horse riding again. Therefore she was thrilled when a trip was arranged!

We will be going back every month with the view to getting her back on that horse!

Well done Jo Jo!

Lavender Fields and Pub lunch - July 2018

On Thursday 19th July, the residents and staff enjoyed a visit to the lavender fields in Sevenoaks Kent. As soon as we opened the mini bus we could smell the lavender and the fields and fields of purple was a beautiful site.

After exploring the lavender fields and picking some of the lavender we ventured back to The Green Man in Longfield where the residents enjoyed a pub lunch and a glass of wine.

A Trip to Herne Bay - May 2018

On a bright and sunny Friday, we travelled to the seaside in our new mini bus.

The residents enjoyed tea and coffee by the sea whilst sitting in the sun and then enjoyed a walk along the front taking in the sea air.

For lunch they enjoyed fish and chips at one of the restaurants, and finished it off with an ice cream whilst sitting on the sea front before travelling back to the chestnuts.

Children spending time with our residents

As a result of the TV program "Old People's Home for 4 year olds" we decided to invite children in, to see them interact and engage with our residents.

Both enjoyed an afternoon of music, games and fun with our entertainer Lhi and the children enjoyed cakes and party rings whilst chatting and playing games with the residents.

It was a great success with lots of the residents talking about the afternoon to relatives and friends for days after the event.

We will be sure to arrange a further afternoon in the future!
