 Essie Summers Retirement Village - Childrens Party

There can’t be many events where the participants range in age from 1 to 101 but the Essie Summers childrens party is one of them! Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of residents and staff all come along to this annual event.

There was a bouncy castle, Neville Barry performed action songs for the children to join in, and games included old favourites like pass the parcel, a hunt for hidden chocolate eggs and one where blindfolded children had to try and thump the pinata stuffed with lollies.

Gingerbread men proved popular as did the cakes dressed with hundreds and thousands, but nothing could outdo the traditional gooey wonder of marshmallows and melted chocolate.

It was an occasion to put the spring in the step of young and old alike.
