This week we had a special visitor – Mr Elvis Presley. He sang everyone’s favourite tunes and got the room singing and dancing.
Janet was keen to have a picture with himself..
Before the entertainment, we had a serious period of quizzes, wordsearches and dominoes.
Our volunteers, David, Julie and Pearl were in top form. No jokes from Pearl this week… so next time we should have a bumper offering.
Everyone was wearing their visors and there was social distancing – but Elvis still managed to generate a great atmosphere.
Gary, from the Carers Centre, was giving confidential advice.
This time we only overran a little bit. Fortunately, the Shrewsbury House cleaning team had plenty of time to sanitise our three rooms before the evening rush.
Gyda stayed afterwards to share this reading:
