It was great that we were able to organise and host two events in May for all residents.
The first of these events was the Village Quiz night on Thursday 18 May. We had teams of independent residents, serviced residents, resthome and hospital residents plus staff, family and even a couple of teams from construction. Teams competed over six rounds of questions covering topics like food, sport, alcohol and geography. The top team was made up of staff, but there is already talk of a rematch and this time the residents want to set the questions!
The second major event was the Village Ball on Friday 26 May. This was an opportunity for residents to dress up and enjoy a glass of bubbles, some fine food and some great entertainment. We had a cabaret performed by Lisa Lovell, who performed a wide range of music, from opera to musical theatre. After this, the residents enjoyed a sumptuous supper, thanks to Jessen and his team in the kitchen. We look forward to a repeat ball next year.
