The British weather can’t seem to make its mind up this summer. Knowing how unpredictable our weather can be, when the sun came out this morning the residents at Rotherwood Care Home went outside to make the most of the sunshine and get some much needed Vitamin D.
The residents really wanted to make the most of the sunshine so thats exactly what we did. The team helped the residents outside while our activities coordinator set up the regular activities outside. The activities included our weekly sing along choir club, a music quiz and tin-can-alley.
The residents had a wonderful day and even enjoyed a Choc-Ice while outside in the sun.
Two residents from Bank Close House in Chesterfield recently celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary.
The homes manager said: “They are such a lovely couple who are as much in love now as I imagine they were when they first met. I am really happy that we were able to provide them with this special party to mark the occasion, but I am even happier that we got to witness and be a part of it. I hope this will be a memory that they will cherish forever.”
On the day they enjoyed 1 hour in a chauffeur driven Rolls Royce, two beautiful Anniversary cakes, Champagne for toasting, a cream tea at lunch and a buffet tea.
Everyone at Devonshire Care would like to wish them a Happy Anniversary with many more years to come.
Congratulations to you both on this special day.
This years Garden Party held on the 23rd July at Bank Close House, Chesterfield was a great success. Throughout the day service users, family and friends came together for a fun filled day to help raise money for our residents. Our aim this year was to try and match our last years total of £517. After counting up all that we raised, this years total was a staggering £1,630. This would not have been possible without all of the hard work, support and kind donations from all of the people who came along to support us.
A service user meeting will take place in the near future where we will discuss how the funds will be best spent.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everybody who took part in making this possible.
Over the weekend here at Rotherwood we held our annual summer fair. During the day we had a variety of different stalls including one full of handmade gifts made by our lovely residents, a tombola, a raffle bric-a-brac and many more. We also had a food stand with hot dogs and burgers, a refreshments stand with drinks and cakes and a few games stands with games including hook a duck and tin can alley.
The day was of great success and was enjoyed by all. At the end of the day we counted up our donations and managed to raise a total of £150. We will be arranging a service user meeting within the next couple of weeks were we will come together to discuss how the money should be spent.
We would like to thank all who attended for their kind donations and support, both before and during the event.
