News & Events at Lavender Oaks

A trip to Denbies Vineyard

To mark Drink Wine Day, earlier in the year we took a trip to Denbies Vineyard for a look around their fascinating facilities. Our residents learnt more about the history of the vineyard before enjoying a wine tasting of their best red and white wines, which was a brilliant experience to take part in. For our residents who chose to stay at home, our marvellous team prepared a cheese and wine evening for all to enjoy!

Spreading the love

Our residents felt a warm glow in their hearts this Valentine’s Day as we reminisced on famous couples in music and cinema history with the ever-popular Tim from Dawson Talks. Afterwards, we had a love song singalong and discussed our favourite romantic moments from different films, which included ‘Gone with the Wind’ and ‘The King and I’. Finally, our Home Manager Maria decided to spread even more joy by presenting each of our residents with a beautiful red rose.
