St Ronans News Letter July17

Trixie’s Blog

Garden Our summer garden is gorgeous and delightfully smelly with the Roses of summer, Jasmine and Orange Blossom! Come and join us at any time of day for tea/coffee and biscuits with your Family. Hopefully very soon, weather permitting, we will have a bbq to enjoy and a good get together. I will put a notice up on the front door when the date is fixed. Also, Posh Tea Parties and Cream Tea are coming up; will let you know the date.

Activities We are currently enjoying a special treat of fish and chips on our Residents’ trip day to the beach with a shandy as well as tea or coffee. It is a lovely treat and so enjoyed by the Residents, We can now take seven Residents every week for our picnic as we have a new bus from Pete’s Air Link. Linnies Fashions and Jewellery came recently which was so much fun and much enjoyed by our Ladies and Carers. Five ladies brought tops with necklaces to match. I caught the joy on their faces with the camera and will be making a collage of it all. For our Pastoral Care, dear Wendy continues to come for our individual blessing which the Residents love, and our lovely Bob from St Simons church comes to do a monthly communion of which we have a lovely group of Residents who really enjoy this special time together. Huge thanks to Wendy and Bob

Fundraising Thank you all so much for supporting our delicious Cake Stall in May. We raised about £100, enough for fish and chips on the beach and for our Ceramics Lady Maria to come to St Ronans to help our Residents create beautiful cups, bowls or plates for a loved one.

Feedback Please continue to write feedback forms and pop them into Matrons box in the lobby where you sign in.

Many thanks for your continual support, kindness and cheerfulness which means so much to us all. With my love and blessings, Trixie xxx
