Welcome to the May edition of the Pine Lodge newsletter.
This month two of our residents, Doreen and Jack, shared a very special occasion. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary with a party for close family and friends. They married in May 1945 – the same month and year that saw the end of WWII and Victory in Europe celebrations, so there would have been little excuse for them to forget their anniversary over the years!
Our warmest congratulations go to them and to George who recently enjoyed his 87th birthday.
ACTIVITIES & EVENTS
Our popular activities programme continues and we have introduced a weekly themed quiz sheet alongside new materials for our regular quiz nights.
We are also starting to put together our Summer Events Programme. An events suggestion box has been placed in the dining room, to prompt discussion and gather ideas. So whether its an old-fashioned picnic, BBQ, themed evening or something completely different, just drop a note into the suggestion box or speak to a member of staff.
A warm welcome to Ilianna and Nicola who joined our care team this month.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
The warmer weather is making sure our rose gardens bloom, and maintaining the lawns and borders is a team effort. Anyone recognise this budding Alan Titchmarsh?
As promised in our April newsletter, below are further details regarding our upcoming Open Day:
Date: Friday 19th June
Time: 2:00 – 4:00
Cream Teas will be served for residents and guests, with tours for new visitors to Pine Lodge. All ages welcome.
