An Afternoon In The Sun
At the beginning of September, Staff organised an afternoon by the 'Seaside' for the residents.
Many people enjoy going on holiday during the summery months. We thought that it would be nice if we could recreate some elements of the seaside for the residents to enjoy. We hoped that this would help the residents reminisce about times that they had spent by the sea.
Due to being a popular activity amongst the Residents, the staff at The Limes holds this activity once a year for the residents to enjoy and reminisce.
An Afternoon At The Seaside - 2019
During this activity we made great use of our beautiful conservatory. We decorated the conservatory using some colourful bunting and sand. The residents were served refreshments and sugary treats that are typically associated with the seaside.
Along with refreshments, the residents enjoyed listening to songs typically associated with the seaside and going on holiday, such as, 'Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside' and Cliff Richards 'Summer Holiday'.
The residents discussed amongst themselves about holidays that they had been on in the past. They reminisced about their time spent in Skegness, Blackpool and many more places!
At Afternoon In The Sunshine - 2020
On the 12th September the residents took advantage of the sun and went out into the garden to enjoy some music, snacks, mocktails and ball games. They all had a lovely time, although some filled up on too many snack and didn't want their lunch!
At Afternoon In The Sunshine - 2021
During July the staff decorated the garden with some bunting , put out the parasols and handed out the sunhats. The residents went out into the garden and had fun in the sunshine with music. The residents danced and sung to songs that are popular among the residents, including Let's Twist Again. The staff offered mocktails and treats to the residents. Due to the heat we couldn't stay out long but the residents thoroughly enjoyed every moment and laughed at some of the dance moves of the staff.
