Diwali celebrations

On the 4th November, residents here at Wiltshire Heights in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, enjoyed celebrating Diwali.

Lily, one of our wonderful carers brought in her colourful selection of saris and we all thoroughly enjoyed looking at the beautiful coloured fabrics. Lily’s traditional ornate jewellery was tried on by the ladies and everyone enjoyed tasting khoya barfi and taaza sweets.

The festival of light was brought to life with music and dance playing on our TV screens and the Leisure and Wellness team placed candles throughout the rooms to create the perfect atmosphere. 

Our new Head Chef, Andy served a delicious chicken curry accompanied by poppadum’s, naan bread, mango chutney and lemon pickle. The feedback was so positive that there have been many requests for this to be a regular on the menu!
