Witney care home Madley Park House, run by The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT), held an end of summer tea party in their ‘Heart of the Home’ lounge, where residents and team members came together to enjoy food and entertainment.
Entertainer Cody was pleased to return to the home, having been a frequent visitor before the pandemic. He entertained party goers with a medley of classics and took requests from residents. Everyone enjoyed singing along and many joined in with dancing.
Resident Sheila said: “Being able to watch Cody play the guitar again was wonderful.”
The tea party featured a large array of cakes, some of which were donated by relatives and others cooked by the home’s fantastic kitchen team. Residents also enjoyed an afternoon tipple, or soft drinks.
The event was organised by the home’s team of Activities Co-ordinators, Gill Hamblin, and Kerry Hyatt.
Kerry said: “After a tough year and not being able to hold our usual events, we wanted to have a joyful afternoon where everyone at the care home could let their hair down and really have some fun. It was so heart-warming to see the huge smiles on our residents faces, the entire room felt full of love and happiness.”
Resident Peal said: “It was so good to see everyone up and dancing, it was a lot of fun!”
