On October 18, our team at Hyde Court hosted a fun afternoon for all the residents. There was a three-page quiz completed by teams and a fascinating ‘illustrated’ quiz that asked residents to identify the age of telephones through the years based on pictures. Both really challenged the memory and intellect but the strain was relieved by tea and a lively chat.
We find that our residents are keen to help others and always enjoy our annual fundraiser for Macmillan Nurses at Goodwin Court. We play bingo, have a raffle and guess the weight of the cake… all to raise money for a very good cause. Of course we have a good time while doing it!
One of the residents of Hyde Court, Andrew, prepared an extensive audio-visual presentation on Vera Lynn, her life and music. The residents enjoyed sharing their memories as well as their singing skills and rounding off with a nice cup of tea. Andrew is working on another show on Frank Sinatra which we hope to hear and see in 2017. Many thanks to Margo, June and Andrew for all their hard work!
