We opened our doors to the community last weekend and brought the seaside to Oxfordshire, at our popular annual summer fete.
Relatives, friends and members of the local community joined residents and staff from our home, for an afternoon of fun with entertainment and beach games for all ages and a raffle raising over £900 for the home’s residents’ fund.
The seaside theme was complemented by a punch and judy show, traditional ice-cream and homemade lemonade, donkeys and live entertainment from the Wantage Male Voice Choir.
Local butcher Patrick Stainge fed hungry guests with a tasty BBQ and Bernard Jones filled the garden with an array of seaside tunes with his traditional organ playing.
Our Lifestyle Support team said: “It was so lovely to see so many people come and support our annual fete this year, creating a memorable afternoon for our residents.
“The theme was suggested at a residents meeting in December that we should bring the seaside to the home, so everyone had the opportunity to relive happy memories.”
