Little Apples Nursery Visits

MONDAY 5TH & 19TH AUGUST - 2.00pm

The children from Little Apples Nursery are joining us again for a fun packed August. We will be in the garden with the little ones, planting our very own seeds. Throughout the summer, the residents and children will pair up and have a competition to see who can grow the biggest and best perennial plants from seedlings. Introducing some friendly competition will be a lovely way for the children and residents to bond, and they can see their plants growing and talk about the progress. Just before Christmas, we will have a prize giving and judge which pair has grown the best plant.

Talk on Myanmar (Formerly Burma)

Wednesday 14th August 2019 - 6.30pm

Dr Peter Covey-Crump will join us again for an evening of pictures and fascinating stories about his travels to Burma. Dr Covey-Crump is a very interesting and well-travelled gentleman and he prepares a fantastic slideshow and is highly knowledgeable on the history of different countries. Peter will be joining the residents for dinner beforehand and relatives and friends are most welcome to attend the talk too.

Mini Concerts

Wednesday 21st August 2019 - 2.00pm

The purpose of ‘Mini Concerts’ is to provide the residents of care and nursing homes with a special hour of entertainment. An experience that crosses generations and engages residents through a mutual love of music with the young people performing for them. The majority of their performers are currently training at top UK theatre schools and these singers delight in sharing their love of music at every opportunity. With set lists that include music from the 40’s through to the 70’s, taken from the catalogues of classic artists such as Elvis, Sinatra, Vera Lynn, Tina Turner, Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett, to name but a few, there really is something for everybody.

Alison Martin, Harpist

Saturday 24th August 2019 - 2.00pm

Alison has been principal harpist with the English National Opera since 1984 and is the daughter of one of our residents, Betty! She also plays with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and has been guest principal of Sydney Opera House. Having trained initially as a piano accompanist, she enjoys ensemble work and accompanying choirs – Alison has had many of her arrangements published, from folk songs to Mozart and Bach. We are very much looking forward to her visit!

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
