Care South’s St Ives House in Ashley Heath was delighted to open its doors to residents, families and the local community for its annual Summer Fayre. Held in the home’s beautiful landscaped gardens, the country and western themed event was officially opened by Care South’s Chief Executive, Simon Bird.
The sun was shining and all the guests enjoyed the afternoon’s games which included welly wanging, AFC Bournemouth power strike games and a name the cowboy teddy competition. There was a whole host of entertainment including singing and country dancing, as well as a wide array of stalls with a tombola, arts and crafts, nail pampering, face painting and a grand raffle.
