It has been quite a summer of celebrations at Astley with 5 birthdays and care certificates for some of our team. We always post birthday celebrations, staff achievements and news on our Facebook page. It is lovely for residents and staff alike to receive so many well wishes and comments in reply.
Our summer birthday celebrations
We all had a fabulous time celebrating John’s 83 years young birthday! The sun shone so we had a garden party with a BBQ and live entertainment from John Wenlock. There was a lot of fun and laughter. A highlight was the duet between John and Tom, with John playing his ukelele.
Some of our ladies have also celebrated their birthdays including Brenda, Dorothy, Pam and Violet. As with every birthday, our chef Florentina made splendid cakes which were decorated by Mariana.
Other summer events
We held a Spanish Day day and had a visit from the Wye Valley Falconry team and their birds of prey. Residents have been enjoying our gardens and the glorious weather at every opportunity. Visits from the ice cream van and fish and chips al-fresco have been a big hit.
