Residents enjoying Melbourne Cup at Shona McFarlane

A fun, exciting day was had by everyone in our care centre who celebrated Melbourne Cup.

We started off the day by doing a sweepstake, we then added some finishing touches to our hats we had created the week before. Many laughs were had as we tried to make our hats look awesome. We had designs from plain to very posh.

Later we held a fashion show. Our residents wowed us as they paraded their new hats. The two winners were Beverly Fox and Patricia Bryant. Well done to them both, their hats were lovely.

In the afternoon our tulip and sunflower residents came together for our very own special horse race, tulip vs sunflower. As the residents pulled the horses along the floor it was the mighty Margret Stephens from tulip who won the race.

We finished off the day with happy hour and had fish and chips while watching the main race.

A great day was had by all!
