Lest We Forget

To honour and remember, this week at Windlesham our Residents made their own poppies.
A fun and creative activity to bring everyone together in remembrance
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them”

💥Every year at Windlesham Manor our Manager Peter puts on a great firework display for our residents and this year was no different!

🔥 Our Residents also had some nostalgic fun toasting marshmallows on the fire pit.

💥Chef Martin, as always put together a scrumptious bonfire night feast of hot dogs with ‘the works’ cheesy baked potatoes and of course there is always pudding! A seasonal pumpkin cake, topped off with hot chocolate and marshmallows!

🔥Everyone had an amazing time. A big thank you to Peter, Martin, Sarah and the whole team for making it a fabulous evening for everyone! #fireworks2020 #bonfirenight2020 #toastingmarshmallows🔥 #nostalgicmoments #makingmemories2020 #carehome #residentialcarehome #elderlycare #carehomeactivities #crowborough #eastsussex

🇬🇧British Food Fortnight 🇬🇧
🥕As part of British Food Fortnight, we planned a reminiscence food activity, where we discussed our favourite nostalgic British foods.
🥔This generated lots of lovely conversations of childhood memories, including meals made from home grown, seasonal vegetables and the fun of Rabbit Jelly desserts!
🥕To create a special Harvest meal for the Residents our Kitchen team made a beautiful lunch based on the Residents fond memories!
🥔Thank you to the kitchen team it was delicious and the wobbly jellies created some giggles too!! #BritishFoodFortnight #britishfoodfortnight2020 ##lovebritishfood #BritishFoodisGreat #lovebritishfoodfortnight #homegrownfood #allotmentuk #nostalgicfood #reminiscence #CareHome #residentialcare #elderlycare #carehomechef #crowborough #eastsussex #crowboroughcommunity
