On this page is news concerning events and happenings around our home.
Glorious Devon countryside was the destination for 5 children and 5 staff this summer, and they spent a fun-filled week doing water sports, canoeing, karting, and relaxing on the beach catching some rays. Safety was paramount of course, with water sport and karting activities run by professionals and sunscreen toted by staff.
Back to School
Whether you are happy or sad to see the end of the school holidays, let's hope everyone at least a week or two of rest – 2019, here we come!
Sports Day Scorcher!
The sun shone on our action-packed and uproarious sports day – which was splendidly organised and participated in by children, staff, parents and visitors. Click here to read more.
Our annual trip to Bewl Water was another great day communing with nature, cycling beside calm water bathed in bright sunshine, raising £200 for a charity run by the preacher Sam Childers.
An inspiring person, his the story of his life is a movie called The Machine Gun Preacher.
A picnic sat in the gardens was a welcome break, and cheesy chips were the overwhelming tasty snack of the day.
Farewell Decorating Time
One of our children who is about to move out of the home and live semi-independently was on hand this summer to lend his burgeoning decorating and DIY skills, and all care home staff lent a decorating hand too.
In the garden under a blazing sun there was also many tree logs to clear and the grass to mow.
On the outside and inside of the house there was paintwork to wash and prepare for repainting, followed by lots of painting and painstaking glossing.
Floors to wash, carpets to lay, as well as finishing installing a new kitchen.
When the decorating was done the house was thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom.
Everyone enjoyed working as a team, and the results are there for all to see and enjoy a good job done.
Thanks to everyone.
