With temperatures set to rise over the weekend, everyone at The Lawns is looking forward to summertime.
What makes you think of summer? Is it the smell of freshly cut grass, or sausages on the BBQ, or suncream. Perhaps the warmth of the sunshine on your skin. Its a fabulous time to get outside and go to the seaside.
We spent an lovely afternoon at The Lawns, reminiscing about summers gone by. It centred around a collage project. Our residents put together a floral collage of pictures, butterflies and quotations of their memories of summer.
