Memory Walk
At Windlesham Manor we are proud to support people who are living with dementia and their families. On Friday our Residents came together as a group to do a memory walk to help raise awareness of dementia and show our support. Our Residents took on the challenge and walked laps around our beautiful grounds at Windlesham Manor to a distance they were comfortable with. Everyone challenged themselves to their own ability and we are amazed and proud to report that between them our Residents walked an amazing 6KM!!! The sun was shining, our Residents were smiling and what a fabulous day it was bringing everyone together!

Our Manager Peter had committed to add up the total distance the Residents walked and he doubled it and ran an impressive 12KM around Crowborough. Thank you so much Peter and all our Residents!

Wow! An amazing achievement! Well done everyone!

🎾🍓 Wimbledon 🍓🎾

We have enjoyed the full coverage of the Wimbledon tournament this Summer. To create an air of traditional British excitement we have also enjoyed all the traditional Wimbledon treats, which of course included bright, juicy British Strawberries with lashes of cream! Chef also went the extra mile and made handmade Tennis Ball Cup cakes, which were enjoyed with a refreshing glass of Pimms!

Windlesham Manor is the former home of the famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote Sherlock Holmes!

It was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday at the weekend, so of course we celebrated the same!

Chef Martin and kitchen assistant Debbie made a superb Sherlock Holmes themed cake for our Residents to enjoy. I’m sure Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have approved. Thank you Martin and Debbie, it really is a masterpiece!!

Our Residents enjoyed a slice of this delicious cake whilst watching The Sherlock Holmes movie The Hound of the Baskervilles! What a lovely way to spend a rainy, wet weekend! #sirarthurconandoyle #arthurconandoyle #arthurconandoylebirthday #sirarthurconandoylebirthday #sherlockholmes #thehoundofthebaskervilles #historicbuilding #famoushome #sherlockholmescake #sherlockholmesparty #carehome #elderlycare #elderlycarehome #residentialcarehome #crowborough #eastsussex

It was National Baking Day this week and what better way to celebrate, than to do some baking!

All our Residents love Chef Martin’s homemade bread, so Chef did a cooking demonstration for everyone and shared some of his top baking tips!

After the demonstration everyone enjoyed a fantastic baking lesson and made their own bread rolls! Many of our Residents are fabulous bakers too and it was great to share our skills and learn new tips! #nationalbakingday #nationalbakingday2021 #bakingbread #bakingdemo #bakingclass #bakingbread #bakingbreads #elderlyactivities #elderlycaregiving #elderlycare #elderlycarehome #residentialcarehome #crowborough #eastsussex
