Galsworthys Cake Fest and Choir day

Galsworthy House nursing home in Kingston upon Thames held a Cake Fest and Choir performance this week.

All members of the care team worked together to start our cake fest at 2pm in the main dining room. Deborah, our administrator, and her daughter came along to help with home made cakes and a guess the weight of the cake competition, the cake was made by Deborah’s mum. Residents, family and friends also played a guess how many sweets in the jar game. The winners were drawn later in the day, Jenny won the guess the weight of the cake and Dorothy won the guess how many sweets in the sweet jar, well done both of you!

Tea and cake was served by Sue our Housekeeping manager, and volunteer worker Sue helped by manning a table selling cards made by our residents, tiny pots of jam and potpourri. Thank you to all of you for making it possible.

Some residents sat in the garden as it was a pleasant day and others gathered in the dining room whilst they enjoyed the refreshments and activities, then at 2:50 residents were taken to the reception area ready for the Galsworthy Choir to perform. The Galsworthy Choir is made up with residents, care team and some family members. They sang Fly Me To The Moon, Don’t Worry Be Happy and Amazing Grace, it was beautiful to watch and listen to. Galsworthy Choir will start rehearsing ready for Christmas later this month.

A great afternoon was had by all. We look forward to the Christmas performance!
