Jane & Robert Cornerways Activity Co-ordinator’s share some highlights in their latest guest blog.
September was a very busy month for Cornerways with a new rail carriage frieze in the dining room complete with new furniture, new flooring, lights and railway inspired pictures.
We had a ‘Colour Clash Day’ to raise money for the charity Rowcroft Hospice, raising a total £109.00. Staff, residents and residents families dressed up in vibrant vivid clashing colours. The residents decorated cakes with similar bright colours which were on sale to visitors and staff. Our chef Robin excelled himself with rainbow cakes and also helped raise money when a member of staff offered to pay to see him get a creamy cake in the face! Which we boldly agreed to.
We held our first ever ‘Cornerways Fashion Show’ with staff, residents, the hair dresser and relatives modelling their favourite outfits and hats. Relatives and staff enjoyed it so much they have asked for it to be an annual event.
Residents also enjoyed a ‘Cheese and Wine Party’ that went down a storm.
October is proving to be another busy month seeing residents enjoy a Chocolate Week tasting afternoon, Swinging 60’s Themed Day and Seafront walks to enjoy the autumn colours (fingers crossed weather permitting).
