All our residents love a game of Snakes & Ladders. Do you know who invented the game? Snakes and Ladders is an original Indian game. The Government of India site credits the invention of the game to the 13th century saint, Gyandev. The game, they say, was originally called Mokshpat; with the ladders representing virtues and the snakes representing vices.Read More
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!Read More
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. They have fond memories of hailing a taxi and saying “Buckingham Palace please driver”. A military band played throughout the afternoon they even played James Bond themes and then at 4 pm the National Anthem played to announce the arrival of the Queen. Afternoon tea was served in the tea tent in the gardens, where they were served with dainty finger buffet items such cucumber and mint Sandwiches, smoked salmon, rolled bread savory, scone and cream, strawberry tart and Victoria sponge. The Queen left the Party at 5.50 pm. WHAT A DAY!Read More
