Blenheim Court’s Wrinkly Writers Club Receive Their Second Card from The King and Queen

27th November 2023

Residents who are part of Blenheim Court Care Home’s Wrinkly Writers’ Club meet every Saturday in the resident’s lounge with our wonderful volunteer Rosemary.

With Rosemary’s guidance the residents write stories, poems and whatever else they feel like doing and Rosemary then puts them together. Rosemary also reads short stories and poems to the group which she thinks they will enjoy.

Their most recent achievement was a poem which they wrote for the King and Queen, and it was sent off to Buckingham Palace! A few weeks later the Wrinkly Writers received a reply in the form of a card and a letter of thanks, together with a photograph of the King and Queen!

One of the members said, “We were very pleased to receive the thank you card for the poem that we wrote for them especially as this was our second thank you card too.” She went on to say, "how enjoyable these meetings are because it keeps our brains ticking over and we talk about things that are happening outside the home.”

Another member said that he thinks the group is “excellent and that Rosemary is brilliant at running the meetings and always brings in interesting articles which she has cut out of the newspapers about people and their lives to read to us.”
