Cranmer Court residents take part in creative reminiscence project

A group of residents from Cranmer court were pleased to be invited to the local Orpheus Centre in Godstone recently to participate in a creative arts project.

The centre is a place of learning for young adults aged 18-25 with special needs, where they are taught creative arts. They invited the Cranmer Court residents to talk about their memories of growing up, which they intend to use to create a play to be performed early in the new year.

Upon arrival, the group were greeted by Hayley and Russell, who showed them to the canteen to enjoy tea and some delicious cakes made by Charlotte. After tea, everyone headed to the barn for the reminiscence session. It went so well that everyone even ran out of time, which offered the perfect excuse to invite the group back to Cranmer Court at a later date, meaning that more residents could be involved in the project.

The return visit was arranged for 9th October when the residents again split into groups and spent time laughing and chatting with their guests. 95 year old Bob Bampton proved to be a wealth of interesting information as he showed Hayley and the rest of the group his first driving licence, rent book, army pay book, fishing licence and his RAC badge from his first job in a photo frame. The residents are all now excited to see the finished the performance next year.

Located on Farleigh Common, Cranmer Court is a purpose built care home providing residential and nursing care for up to 62 elderly people.
