Out With the Old, in With the New at Ashcombe House Care Home

Staff and residents at Barchester’s Ashcombe House care home, in Worting Road celebrated bringing in the New Year in style with early celebrations for New Years Eve.

Residents enjoyed drinks and Buffet before live singing with Lizzie Hayles from Reminisce entertainment had residents up dancing and singing together to bring in the new year.

Mary Dodsworth Resident at Ashcombe was a ballroom dancer for 50 years so jumped at the opportunity to be lead across the floor once again by fellow resident Douglas Mccann. Mary said: “It’s been a truly wonderful afternoon celebrating the coming New Year, and to be waltzed across the room has really made my year! Im looking forward to see what 2022 has to offer us “.

Although residents didn’t stay up until midnight to usher in the New Year it didn’t stop them celebrating the passage of the year. The afternoon finished with Auld Lang Syne and a countdown to 2022.

At Ashcombe we provide a varied life enrichment programme giving daily choices to keep residents engaged. We have a variety of weekly clubs, baking, dominoes and Bingo to name just a few with something for everyone.
