We are really enjoying the wonderful gardens at Woodlands for walks, games, activities or just sitting and court yard in this lovely warm weather we are having. On a very sunny Easter Monday we were able to enjoy garden walks and board games.

We also had our weekly delivery of fresh flowers. Which our talented ladies put in vases to display around the home.


On Friday 17th we had a ‘Fruity Friday’ with an all-day fruit theme.

We had a fruit themed quiz and learnt fascinating facts about fruits during the morning. In the afternoon we sampled a range of fruits from melon to mango, blueberries to bananas. This was followed by a variety of mystery fruit smoothies in like strawberry/banana and spinach/banana. Surprisingly! We really liked the spinach/banana one best.

Becky and Sally-Anne ready to bring fabulous fruit tasting to us all.

Anne particularly enjoyed the strawberries.

Ken enjoyed all the fruits including the cherry tomatoes.
