Firtree celebrates record turnout for Western themed event

Residents, relatives and other visitors all have fun at Firtree House’s Western themed event.

The weekend event included a range of themed activities for children and adults alike, including: tin can alley, unlock the safe and tombola. Prizes also followed the Western theme, and were packaged to look like bars of gold bullion or money bags.

Free burgers, hotdogs and Tex/Mex wedges were served up, with tipis and a totem pole to make the scene authentic, and a saloon bar serving up beer for the adults. There was also a Country & Western singer performing, to make the shindig all it should be!

The Home Manager, Jackie Cullip, said: ‘We’re always so proud of our events and we like to share them with everyone. We have very dedicated staff, who always help out so much and we even have previous employees / partners / family who enjoy coming along and helping.

‘A huge well done to our Site Maintenance Officer, who built the tipis and the saloon from scratch. This event saw one of the best turnouts we’ve ever had, and everyone who attended has said how well it went.’
