THE GRANGE GAZETTE
After the chills and snow of January we are looking forward to February when the early shoots of spring flowers peep from the damp earth. Spring isn’t too far away!
We will be celebrating St. Valentines with a visit on the 12th from Johnny Victory. He is looking forward to seeing everyone and will be performing in the dining room from 2pm.
We are also looking forward to a visit from Vibez Danceworks on the 18th when the children will be performing their modern jazz, ballet and tap routines for your enjoyment. Please welcome and support all the dancers who are preparing for the show season to begin. Details will be posted on the notice board in due course.
We had some amazing feedback from residents, family and staff regarding the visit from Bob and the Owl Experience in January. I know some of you were disappointed to miss the event and others would like Bob to visit again. Photographs of the event are displayed on the main notice board and Shirley is currently organising a further visit from Bob and his feathered friends.
This month we would like to wish Kathleen a very Happy Birthday on the 4th February. Everyone at the Grange send their best wishes on your special day.
RESIDENT’S FUND APPEAL
Shirley would be grateful for any new and unopened items of bric-a-brac which can be grouped together to make gift baskets. This can range from toiletries, children’s toys, puzzle books, crayons, playing cards, bed socks…the list is endless.
Providing items are new or within their use by date Shirley can always find a use for your donations and she thanks you for your continued support in her fundraising efforts.
We also have a book shelf outside the managers office with preloved books for sale at 20p each. Please pop your pennies in the piggy with all money raised solely for the Residents Fund.
Harry became a regular visitor to the Grange and always helped Shirley to draw or make something for the residents. Harry’s Corner is situated by the grandfather clock and an area where children can always find something to occupy them during a visit.
Shirley has replenished the reading books and drawing materials and she is always happy to display drawings and pictures around the Grange.
