Our residents at Westfield House loved it when the Loughborough University Creche came into see us. The children who are just 3 years old and our residents who are in their Golden years, loved having fun together! They made bubbles, were shaking maracas to music, shaped play dough figures and hit balloon’s around our lounge to each other. After all the fun and laughter, the children and our residents sat down for a well earned biscuit and a cuppa/juice. Fun times at Westfield House!

The Queen invited us to her Garden Party on 28th May 2015. Our longest serving Night Senior Worker and Volunteer were invited to attend by Her Majesty.
