Sun Shines on Canterbury Care Home’s Summer Fete
After a difficult year and a half, there was sunshine and smiles all round last weekend, as everyone got together at Connors House for their summer fete.
The weather hasn’t exactly been great so far this summer but residents, staff and visitors at Connors House Residential Care Home were blessed with a warm and sunny day for their first post Covid-19 get together last weekend, their summer fete.
The Craddock Road care home’s summer fete invited friends of the home and the community into the garden to enjoy an array of summer activities. A live performer, whose act included fire and giant balloons, kept the little ones entertained, whilst the adults could browse the various stalls and enjoy a burger from the barbecue.
Indeed, there was plenty of fun for all ages on offer, including a tombola, tin can alley, hoop a bottle and guess the weight of the cake, which had been especially made by a staff member.
Christine Devlin, General Manager of Connors House said: “After such a challenging year, it’s wonderful to be able to welcome families back into the home for get togethers like this. We were truly lucky to have such lovely weather on the day and everyone who attended said what an enjoyable afternoon it was, particularly after the year we have all had.
“We’d like to thank everyone who helped out, the staff really put in a lot of effort to make it a really enjoyable afternoon for all and some really went the extra mile, so I’d especially like to thank Laura, Becky, Ross and Sara.”
