Trixie’s Blog

Our Garden is looking quite beautiful now and ready for Portsmouth in Bloom when the Judges come round. We have upgraded this year with bird boxes, an insect box, water butt, compost bin and hanging baskets – so fingers crossed! However it’s all fun for us with Michael, Babs, Joy and Ann all helping. Michael has made a lovely herb garden.

Activities Thank you so much for joining in our posh tea party “Paws for Tea” for the PDSA and we raised a marvellous £60. The Residents’ ceramics came back from Moira looking beautiful, and the chosen Relatives were thrilled. More “posh tea parties” will continue and a notice will be up on our notice board in the lobby where you sign in plus BBQ’s in our Garden, weather permitting! We now have a make-up club with amazing results – with a little blusher, eyeshadow and lipstick our ladies feel reborn – and look gorgeous. Our lovely Bob from St Simons Church continues to come along for communion and dear Wendy who comes for individual blessings. A wonderful support.

Fund Raising Friends and Relatives old and new very kindly continue to support our fund and so this enables us to have fish and chips monthly on our bus outings and a shandy. Glorious picnics continue weekly all year – rain or shine!

Feedback Please continue to write feedback forms and pop them into Matron’s Box on the reception desk.

Hugest thanks as always for your continual support and good cheer. You make an amazing contribution to us at St Ronans and are a very valuable part of us.

With love and blessings, Trixie xxx
