On Wednesday 20th November everyone was invited to wear a onesie into work. Sponsorship was encouraged to raise funds for the clients amenities fund.
Gail. Cat, Alex & Yvonne
Liam & Mia
Liam added wings and hand painted his onesie to make his dragon come alive!
Lisa looking as though butter would not melt!!
Mia & Amy
We had 2 Dalmations, Mia & Lexi (above) we just need another 99 for the set!
Guess who was shy???
A big ‘Thank you’ to everyone who took part, the sponsorship has not been collected yet, but I know Yvonne raised a tremendous amount, well done to her.
Everyone looked fabulous, & the clients enjoyed having a ‘different day’.

A party was held on the 17th October to celebrate Elsie’s 100th Birthday. Her husband of 72 years had celebrated his birthday, also 100 in April. Sharon ( Manager) organised for 100 green balloons to be released to commemorate the day. Attached to the balloons was a postcard asking for the card to be returned when found. A video of the launch is below:

Releasing the Balloons
A map has been put up in the dining room, to pin point where the balloons have been found. So far we have had cards returned from as far afield as Hungary, Germany & Holland.
Card received from Kata in Hungary.

So much is happening at Broadlands Park I must update otherwise it all becomes ‘old news!’
Sharon is now our new trainee manager, with Claire as her second in command / administrator / co-ordinator & any other title we can give her. Together they are doing a sterling job. Thank you for everyone’s support during this transition period.
The garden round the side of the house is now fenced in, and with all this lovely weather a safe haven for the clients. Geoff has been supervising the planting in the vegetable patch, runner beans, potatoes, herbs & lots more. We are looking to purchase a shed to finish off the area.
The Royal Wedding was celebrated with a ‘indoor street party’ . Everyone had a lovely time & photo’s courtesy of Annie (big Thank You Annie) will be on show soon. A raffle was held and proceeds go towards the client’s amenities fund.
A new television was purchased prior to the Royal Wedding so we were all able to watch the celebrations on a large flat screen.
The chickens are well & laying eggs for breakfast, we have moved them to the back of the house, so clients can see them from their bedroom windows. They can often be found at the back door waiting to be allowed in! We are looking at purchasing them a new house soon…….any ideas?
I will add more soon……….Sue
