Halloween

December 1, 2010

We thought we would do something different here at The Grange & Lyndhurst this year and decorate the houses for Halloween!

It was a mad dash to buy out the local supermarket of most of its Halloween Decorations but it paid off. The Lounges and Dining Rooms were covered in spooky spiders and creepy insects, not to mention all the pumpkins that the Residents had previously carved.

British Theme Food Week

November 7, 2010

The Grange has decided that between 15 – 21 November, We will hold a British Themed Week for the whole menu. I am hoping it will be a success and that maybe in the future it is something we can do often. It brings variety to the menu and the residents lives. I am hoping to prepare dishes that reflect what the Ladies & Gentlemen would have cooked at home. So far I have all the basics covered such as; Cottage Pie, Haggis, Hot Pot, Apple Pie and many more British Classics.

I am hoping the residents will enjoy it and it will be something we can continue with at both homes in to the future.

Fireworks Display

November 5, 2010

The Grange held its Annual Fireworks Display on Tuesday 2 November. The Display is getting bigger and bigger year upon year! The display lasted around twenty minutes and all Residents, Family & Staff thoroughly enjoyed the show.

The Fireworks started as a fundraiser for charity and has turned in to an annual event, which draws in many family members from all the residents and staff. Everyone is welcome and advertisements are displayed in Goring to invite local neighbours to attend.

Tomato soup was served whilst the fireworks were going off followed by hot dogs and chilli.

Let’s hope 2011 will bring an even bigger & better display!

The Grange’s New Greenhouse

September 24, 2010

The Grange has recently purchased and constructed a specially designed Greenhouse accessible by wheelchairs. As well as the Polythene tunnel already in the grounds for growing of plants, the greenhouse will house plants ready for potting so residents can participate in activities that reflect their true lives at home.

The Greenhouse has been fitted with a specific low built bench, lower than the normal workbench height so it is easier for the less abled residents to participate.

We hope the greenhouse will hold hours of enjoyable activities come Spring 2011.
