Fizz Fridays at Galsworthy House

The residents and care team at Galsworthy House in Kingston upon Thames have been enjoying a regular Friday activity with different entertainment each week.

Fizz Friday was the brainchild of Home Manager Graeme Redshaw and it has really taken off, the fizz and entertainment is thoroughly enjoyed by residents and their families.

It began in August with our activities ladies dressing up in 1940’s dress, looking amazing! and entertainment from Josephine singing 1940’s and 1950’s music, many residents joined in with this reminiscing and remembering the recent 1950’s discussions they had with Nigel.

More recently there was magic in the air at our Fizz Fridays have enjoyed entertainment from Doug performing magic, as well as playing guitar and singing. Doug has been coming to Galsworthy for nearly 2 years this was the first time we have seen his magic act. He always interacts very well with the residents and visitors. On this occasion he asked the audience for help, he gave a member of staff a £20 note and asked the staff member to sign her name on it, Doug had shown a Lemon earlier in his act, he later cut the Lemon and inside was the £20 note with the staff members name on it. Doug captured many residents and visitors with both his music and magic. We look forward to Doug’s return later in the year!
