Sizzling Summer Fun at Coxhill Manor

At Coxhill Manor care home in Woking, our second big Sizzling Summer BBQ held in August took on a holiday theme. It was a fun packed day which started with entertainment in the conservatory courtesy of ‘Vaud et Ville’ who delighted our residents with a magic/circus show which demanded lots of audience participation.

We were treated to the visual and colourful delights of rope spinning, foot juggling, magic painting and even some balloon modelling which went down really well with our residents.

Another gorgeous and sizzling BBQ in the gardens followed the circus entertainment. Everyone enjoyed a feast, thanks to our fabulous chefs Richard, Rob and Monica. To top it off, the sun shone all day to complete the holiday theme.

The highlight of the afternoon was the arrival of the traditional ice cream van complete with the ’ice cream van chimes’ we are all familiar with. It bought back a lot of happy memories for us all. Everyone indulged and it was agreed the ‘99’s’, the ice cream with a flake were a winner.

We had a group of children from NCS (National Citizen Service) volunteering with us for the day too who helped in the morning preparations of the day and put all the colourful bunting up in the garden. They served the ice creams and chatted with our residents and visitors. They even did a little performance for us in the afternoon and got everyone singing along to some classic songs as we enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine.

The day also gave us chance to say farewell to our administrator Lesley Nash here at Coxhill Manor. Lesley is leaving us after 11 years as part of the Coxhill Manor family, and will be greatly missed. We all wish every happiness, as she starts her new chapter in life in Devon with her husband and her horses.

Resident Billie said about the day
“I thought it was very good. The circus act was very clever in so many ways – the best I’ve seen. The ice cream van was a scream! The whole day has been wonderful. The summer holiday theme went down well with everyone.”
