Ella Fitzgerald said: “The only thing better than singing is more singing.” And this is what we do at Birchy Hill, where residents and staff alike enjoy and are cheered up with weekly sing along karaoke sessions.
Let there be cheese and wine … or cake and wine … or banana and chocolate … or ……
We can carry on like this for weeks as our residents enjoy something different at the weekly Breakfast Club.
For Jane Austen there was “no enjoyment like reading”, and the English writer Joseph Addison said that “reading is to mind what the exercise is to the body”. Residents at Birchy Hill enjoy reading the Daily Sparkle. Stories as “On This Day” and Quizzes or an album about places where they grew are bringing up lots of memories to share afterwards.
At Birchy Hill we proudly honoured WWII veteran Group Capt. J.R. TANNER on the 75th VE Day celebrations.
We’d dearly like to thank the families who shared these interesting and moving stories, and photos of their loved ones.
