On Wednesday night in New Milton at the Recreation Centre:
Birchy Hill’s Male Care Staff built two teams to play a 5-aside football match.
They all played with great enthusiasm, but also lots of laughter.
12 “winners” left the indoor pitch after 90 minutes of fun.
Management and Female Colleagues are very grateful that nobody got injured.
Well done “Boys”!
Once again Birchy Hill awarded the Highflyer Wings to one staff, who went above and beyond their normal duties.
Zina Silo, Head of Housekeeping, is hardworking and very flexible. She supports the Service and the Management alike; and she has a wonderful sense of humour.
Congratulations Zina from all staff and residents – well done!
On Sunday Morning a few Residents from Birchy Hill went on a Boat Trip.
We boarded the M/V “Alison MacGregor” Mk3, a specially built boat providing trips for people with disabilities, including those in wheelchairs.
The boat left Hythe Marina at about 10am and we arrived back on land at 1.30pm. While we had lovely sunshine, our Residents enjoyed the trip with blankets, hot chocolate and biscuits.
We passed many big cruise ships, some boats you can see in the movie “Dunkirk”, super fast ferries, container ships and many more.
Everybody on board had a lovely time, thanks to the friendly and helpful crew from Solent Dolphin, operating the boat.
At our Summer Fete, we raised a staggering £620
Well done to everyone and thank you all for your support
