March was quite a busy month for activities and we had lots of activities/entertainment tailored towards celebrating St Patrick’s Day on Friday 17th March 2017.

In preparation for St Patrick’s Day we gathered together to decorate some of our own table clothes in keeping with the Irish theme, which looked fantastic!  On Wednesday 15th March 2017 the Alder Hey Choir came and performed a lively selection of Irish songs which we thoroughly enjoyed and then on St Patrick’s Day we all gathered in the Market Place to enjoy some entertainment by ‘Dicky Tickers’.


Again our monthly Residents Social Evening was well attended which was the Residents favourite ‘Fish and Chip Supper’ and afterwards we all enjoyed a quiz.  We have continued with our usual selection of activities which have included crosswords, quizzes, Book Club and Knitting Club as well as our armchair and balloon exercises which were thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Finally we enjoyed Mothers Day on Sunday 26th March 2017 and Residents were offered a glass of fizzy wine and a chocolate in celebration.

Betty's Bday

During February some of our Residents had the chance to attend the Empire Theatre to enjoy ‘Modern Millie’, we had a lovely afternoon out and the show was thoroughly enjoyed by our Residents.

A Sister of one of our Residents kindly offered to come in and sing for us in the Market Place this month so we gathered together and enjoyed a wonderful country afternoon.

Elizabeth Bday

We have continued to celebrate our Residents birthdays which this month included Elizabeth, Betty and Maureen where we enjoyed a party for each Resident including a cake!

This month we also enjoyed a tea/coffee morning and some delicious cake in the Market Place which allowed Residents and their families to gather together.

Activities – January 2017

February 8th, 2017

After a busy festive period we began the New Year by asking our Residents their wishes for the New Year with the majority hoping for a peaceful and healthy 2017.


As usual our monthly Residents Social proved popular this month as we enjoyed a ‘fish and chip supper’ followed by a quiz which was enjoyed by all.  We also continued with our usual activities including card games, ‘name that tune’, parachute exercise, Bingo, crosswords, quizzes, hand massages and armchair exercises – which is proving quite popular amongst our new Residents.  Out Knitting Club and Book Club are still going well!

This month we held a Sir Ken Dodd day in celebration of his Knighthood.  We celebrated with a sing along to Ken’s music and we even had our own ‘tickling sticks’ whilst we enjoyed ‘jam butties’ and a drink of Sherry or Baileys.


We held a ‘Hot Chocolate Day’ with some marshmallows for our Residents this month which included a debate on the world today in comparison to the generations that our Residents grew up in.

Wednesday 25th January 2017 was ‘Burns Night’ and we celebrated this by gathering in the Market Place.  We also celebrated Chinese New Year by looking at our Chinese Community and Zodiac whilst enjoying a Sherry and eating fortune cookies.
