St Ronans News Letter March 18

Trixie’s Blog 

Cold but beautiful sunshine and a few snow flurries, with hope for a glorious spring.

We have wonderful entertainment and activities during the next two months so please take a

St Ronans newsletter with all the names and dates. Also, there are some Posh Tea Party dates to be made.

Linnie will be back in April with her fashions and jewellery and I will make a ‘Homemade Tea’ to go

with it, that will be fun.

Lovely Bob, our Retired Vicar from St Simon’s, continues to come every few weeks for Communion

and dear Wendy, also from St Simon’s church comes to do individual blessings. Our Residents love

them both and thank goodness for them and their support.

Our garden is springing up new bulbs and wall flowers with lots of buds on our beautiful flowering

cherry tree. As soon and the frost and ice is over, the Residents will be doing their own seed pots

and sprinkling seeds of their choice ready to be planted early summer.

Please continue to write the feedback forms and pop them into Matron’s wooden box in the lobby

where you sign in.

My love and warm hugs and blessings to you all for your amazing support and cheery smiles, it

means a lot to us all.
