Staff and residents at Magnolia court care home in Hampstead celebrated the classic game of Scrabble, on World Scrabble Day, which takes place every year on April 13th. American architect, Alfredo Mosher Butts, was born on this day in 1899, he invented the famous game in 1938.
The home was in high spirits as the activities team planned scrabble session played by couples and that was really amazing and very competitive. Our winners are Peggy and Bill.
General Manager, Octavian Stanciu said: “We love playing Scrabble here at Magnolia court so naturally we wanted to celebrate World Scrabble Day. Some of the care staff got involved in the games too but they didn’t stand a chance – we have some very experienced and talented scrabble players living here!
Resident Magnolia court commented: “I grew up playing Scrabble and it always surprises me how competitive I become when I play! It is such a great game to keep your mind active and I love that you can play it on your own, in pairs or in teams. We have had some brilliant games today, it is wonderful that you can learn new words even at my age!
