Love was in the air at Whittington House

On Wednesday 14th February, there was love in the air here at Whittington House Nursing Home in Cheltenham, when our residents and team celebrated Valentine’s Day.

The day began with our Art Club making heart shaped bunting which was used to decorate each of the dining rooms. The tables were laid with red table cloths, flowers and a sprinkling of heart confetti.

At Film Club we invited everyone to the cinema to enjoy the latest edition of the Disney Classic ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

The afternoon began with live music from Andy Yapp, our local singer and entertainer who was back by popular demand.

Andy strummed his guitar and sang a variety of songs including Country & Western, Folk, Irish, and even a bit of Elvis.

All our residents were singing along and it wasn’t long before they were asking for their favourite songs to be played.

After a lot of singing there was a break for a much needed cup of tea, including the chef’s “Love Heart” themed cupcakes, which needless to say were loved!

The finale of the day was the special “Valentine’s Supper”, served with pink champagne, which was enjoyed by our ‘couples’, their families and loved ones.
