Lots of ‘Leaves and Laughter’ at Tall Trees Autumn Party

This weekend we hosted our “Leaves and Laughter Autumn Party” at Tall Trees in Shipton-under-Wychwood. We were delighted to welcome many of our residents, relatives and friends to our event and to celebrate the day with us.

Despite the weather not being great, we were not deterred and for those who wanted to enjoy our garden, we held a BBQ outside. Our hospitality team cooked up a storm and we all enjoyed the delicious treats on offer.

JJZ Production provided the musical entertainment on the day which was very, very good and interactive getting everyone into the spirit of the occasion. Everybody was singing and dancing along and the home rang out to the sound of music, cheer and laughter.

We didn’t forget about our young visitors and we laid on special children’s entertainment for them so they could get involved in the day too. We had a selection of games on offer which they enjoyed such as ‘Pick a Duck’ and ‘The Duck Pond’. Our residents loved seeing them all having fun.

The ‘Bake-off Competition’ was a great success and there was steep competition and very hard to judge. However, we managed to whittle down all the entrants and we were thrilled to announce three winners. They were over the moon and delighted with their prizes and best of all, we all got to enjoy their mouth-watering cakes as well.

All in all, the party was a really fun event and a big success for everyone living in and visiting our home. It was a great start to our autumn activity programme.

Roxana Scrobanet, Activities Coordinator said

“I sincerely want to thank you everybody who helped make this event such a success; our residents, members of our team (from kitchen to care) and everyone else who contributed and gave a helping hand. Also, a big thank you to Michelle Little, our Home Manager who always encourages great activities in the home and is so supportive and helpful with these events.”
