Windlesham Manor

At Windlesham Manor our aim is to ensure that our Residents feel part of the wider community and celebrate key events in the social and sporting calendars and this week we have brought the banks of ‘The River Thames’ to them! @henleyroyalregatta

We thoroughly enjoyed the #henleyathome Regatta. We of course needed a touch of ‘Henley Class’ and a welcome glass of fizz was enjoyed by all! We added a lovely mixture of fresh fruit to strawberry sparkling wine and everyone enjoyed the bubbles and beautiful strawberry sent!

It wouldn’t be Henley without a spectacular picnic. Our Head Chef and the kitchen team created a beautiful homemade spread of;
* Home cooked honey roast ham
* Home roasted warm succulent lemon and Thyme chicken
* Homemade leek and bacon quiche
* Scotch eggs
* Gala Pie
* Warm sausage rolls
* Warm sausages rolled in honey and grain mustard
* Homemade egg mayonnaise and smoked salmon vol-au-vents
* Homemade spinach, feta cheese and sunflower seed filo rolls
* Homemade anchovy and olive bread
* Tomato, red onion and roasted pepper salad
* Tossed mixed green salad
* Fresh summer berries and double cream

Suitably fed and watered we sat back and imagined we were on the edge of ‘The Thames’ and enjoyed highlights of last years races!

A regal afternoon worthy of our residents! #henleyregatta #henleyathome #residentialcare #elderlycare #carehomesuk #crowborough #eastsussex #eastsussexcarehome

Wimbledon fortnight would currently be underway, despite it being cancelled we thought it would be great to keep up the tradition and enjoy the key event in the British Sporting Calendar!
We collated a selection of iconic famous matches for our Residents to enjoy on ‘The Big Screen’ ...but step aside Federer we also have our own Windlesham Manor big hitters in our very own tournament! We utilised our volleyball net and a great lightweight badminton set to create our own ‘Mini Wimbledon’ and everyone had so much fun. The weather was fabulous too! We are so lucky with our amazing grounds, we have so much space to do various activities and having many shady corners alongside the Gazebo is fantastic, as there is plenty of space for everyone to relax in the shade.
Head Chef Martin of course added some culinary delights to our event....Tennis Ball cupcakes no less! I must say Martin they looked fantastic and I’m told tasted equally as good! #wimbledonathome #miniwimbledon #tenniscupcakes #residentialcare #elderlycare #elderlycarehome #summerfun2020 #crowborough #eastsussex

We drew inspiration from our beautiful garden and the floral arrangements we made for #britishflowersweek2020 for this creative session. Our Residents took photos of some of our favourite flowers in the garden and we blew them up and laminated them. We set up an ‘Invitation to Create’ with our pictures, our floral displays and a range of art materials. It was a lovely, relaxing afternoon and some fantastic artwork was produced by our very talented and creative residents. #artsessions #floralinspirations #mindfulpainting #carehomeactivities #residentialcarehome #elderlycare #crowborough #eastsussex #invitationtocreateart
