During April we celebrated Easter within Christopher Grange.  On Easter Sunday each Resident received some chocolate and a sherry on each unit and then on Easter Monday we had an Easter Bonnet Parade with our very own Jim, Gerard and Alf acting as the judges for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.  We also had an egg and spoon race were Residents, families and staff all got involved!

We also celebrated Aintree Grand National’s Ladies Day with our very own ‘Ladies Day’ here are Christopher Grange.  On the day we had judges with prizes for the winners, we had refreshments which included snacks and bucks fizz and we also had our own sweep with Pat from Rhona getting the winner!

We are continuing with our usual activities including our monthly social, we had had some entertainment and celebrated a few of our Residents birthdays.  Our trips out this month have included visiting local garden centres, shopping and lunch out and the recently introduced hand massages has proved popular!

Thank you!

 In May 2018 the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) presented Christopher Grange with a cheque for £20,000 which we will use to purchase new curtains and bedding for all of the bedrooms in the Residential Units.

We would like to take this opportunity to give a massive thanks to the RVS for their very kind and generous donation and to thank all the volunteers at the RVS Coffee Shop who give their time and support and who provide a wonderful, social experience that our Residents and their families value and enjoy.

Thank you once again for this wonderful gift that has enabled us to improve the quality of the service we offer our Residents.

Activities – March 2018

April 22nd, 2018

 During March we celebrated both Mothering Sunday and St Patricks Day. 

We celebrated Mother’s Day with all our ladies by taking chocolates and sherry onto each of the units – the Residents were all delighted with this!  We celebrated St Patricks Day on the Market Place with some entertainment with refreshments including Baileys and Guinness on offer to those who wanted it.  We all had a really good time and enjoyed a sing-along of all the Irish songs, we also had instruments and Irish hats to enjoy!

Our usual monthly activities are continuing and we had a day out to the Wirral for afternoon entertainment and afternoon tea with Ann, Maureen, Kitty, May, Marie and Alice who all enjoyed their day.  We also had Easter Crafts this month were we made Easter Bonnets for our Easter Bonnet Parade on Easter Monday.
