St Ronans News Letter March17

Trixie’s Blog

Garden A wonderful time now Spring is creeping upon us with lighter mornings and evenings. Our garden has had a little prune and sweep getting ready for warmer weather ~ hopefully good enough for residents and families to have a little airing to see our bulbs now coming up in their pots! What joy! We will have to start planning our summer garden ready for Portsmouth in Bloom which will be judged in July; who knows, it’s all fun whatever happens and our Residents love the involvement.

Activities We now have new entertainers on our books that come regularly and give us all much joy, singing and laughter. Mandy our regular Quiz Master is very popular and our Residents have an amazing knowledge once prompted. We love family and friends joining us for our entertainment, that is what makes St Ronans so special, having you here with us.

Fundraising Our Spring Cake Sale will be coming up in April and the confirmed date will be put on our door as you come in. The Relatives and Friends Support Group will be on the same day ~ hope to see as many as possible

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

Hugest thanks for your continual support, kindness and good cheer ~ it means so much to us all. Blessings and love to you all, Trixie xxx
