Join us at The Valleys to wish Her Majesty the Queen a fantastic Jubilee! On 3rd June – starting at 1pm, we will be holding a Jubilee Day party. Our residents are certainly looking forward to it and all family and friends are invited as well. There will be food and drink, lots of party games and, wait for it…..a Family Selfie Station. Yes, there is no getting away from an embarrassing snap with all the relatives! Seriously we think it will be a great day’s celebration and the home is sure to be looking fab for the occasion. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
It’s so nice to get cards that you don’t expect, and this week our residents and staff were touched to receive a lovely greeting from the children of Bettesford Bunnies pre school. Their card certainly did make us smile and cheered everyone up. We particularly liked all the hearts. A lovely thing to receive, and a big thank you from all of us for such a nice thought.
Our lovely residents are really in the spirit and enjoying this Easter Weekend. They have been busy preparing decorations for the home for the past week which is now full of everything chocolate, chicks and bunnies! Last year we also saw some fabulous Easter Bonnets on display, and they will make a comeback this year with fair weather forecasted. What are you doing to celebrate Easter?
At The Valleys we have always tried to deliver a balanced, nutritious and healthy menu to our residents at mealtimes. Making sure they eat good food is an important part of the care we give. The choice we offer is extensive, and throughout the day and we try to cater for all likes and dislikes, as well as specialist dietary requirements. Here are some pictures of a few of this weeks tasty treats. Our wonderful kitchen team constantly push the boat out and create some great dishes. Our residents are always asking when will lunch, tea or dinner be ready!
Mother’s Day is always a special day in the Calendar, and no more so than this year. Many of us won’t be able to be with our Mums today but that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking of them and sending them our love.They may be Mums who are sadly no longer with us, Mums who are nurses, carers and doctors working hard to keep us safe, Mums looking after us at home, or they may even be isolating because of the current situation – trying to keep themselves and others well. Wherever they may be and whatever they may be doing, here is a big shout out to all of them.Mums really do make the world go round and today is their day!Let’s celebrate all Mums, you are all much loved and cherished, and let’s hope they can stay safe, well and happy today .Here’s to the Mums!
Red Nose Day always brings out the best in people. The sheer variety of events that take place around the country is amazing. Here at The Valleys we have been doing our bit to support a great cause. Our lovely residents and staff got involved in a Red Nose Race – similar to an Egg & Spoon race only with Red Noses. Everyone had a great laugh, and we discovered some competitive spirits. All money raised will go to Comic relief. Let’s hope they have had a great evening of fundraising.
Today is Red Nose Day, this year at The Valleys, the staff decided to celebrate it by baking this wonderful cake! We think it turned out pretty well, what do you think?
Here at The Valleys our lovely ladies celebrated International Women’s Day by undertaking some fresh flower arranging and pressing. They came up with some beautiful displays which really brightened up the home and were a lovely tribute to women everywhere.
The latest edition of the Gemstone Magazine, bringing you all the latest news and events from The Valleys is now available. A copy can be obtained from our reception. We hope you enjoy reading about what we have been up to and also playing some of the games that are included. If you have a story about a relative that you think would make interesting reading in the magazine then please let us know and we can try and include it in our next isuue.
Here at The Valleys our lovely residents have always enjoyed their gardening. Whilst it might be a little bit early for them to be outside it hasn’t stopped them planting up pots ready for the warmer weather. Lots of seeds were sown and we can’t wait to see the results. Roll on Summer and the warmer weather when we can get outside again!
