There’s a spring in our step!
The flowers are blooming, and the skies are turning blue. Spring is on its way and there’s also a new spring in our step at Birchwood House. We’ve celebrated a number of exciting events so far this March and we can’t wait to share them with you.
Firstly, we’d like to wish the March babies at Birchwood House a very happy birthday! Our resident Rosemary celebrates her birthday on 18th of the month and Christine, 27th. We’re wishing the ladies wonderful days filled with all their favourite things and we look forward to celebrating with them.
We thoroughly loved Shrove Tuesday at the beginning of the month. We were able to enjoy some delicious pancakes as well as enjoying good fun.
The coming of spring is often filled with new rejuvenated energy, and we’ve been channelling that into keeping active this month. Henry from G Fitness has continued to run his popular fitness class with our residents. Henry is a keen sports enthusiast and visits us every month. He’s fantastic at getting everyone moving and our residents are always keen to take part in his fitness classes. G Fitness is just one of the many activities our residents are involved with at Birchwood House.
We had a celebrity in our midst in the form of Sir Cliff Richard’s musical director, Keith Hayman. The residents really loved the entertainment. Everyone was up and dancing having fun, including our team! Keith first worked with Richard in 1996 as Production Vocal Arranger and then keyboard player on the hit musical, Heathcliff. We are very excited for Keith to return on Easter Monday for our next dance-off and have booked him to come back to Birchwood House each month.
Louisa Loring has embarked on a new career path with us as Activities Coordinator at Birchwood House. Louise joined us as a carer after her mother became a resident and will start her new role on 21st of March.
Our fabulous new year’s competition came to an end, and we were delighted to announce our winner – Tiff Jordan. Tiff was the lucky winner of an Afternoon Tea Delights Hamper. We also have another great competition to get involved with for Mother’s Day, where you can win an Afternoon Tea Experience for two at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells, so be sure to check that out as well.
Lastly, we wanted to let you know that Birchwood House is having an Open Day! Feel free to pop along on Saturday 7th May and we’d be delighted to offer new and existing families a tour. We also have a great Spring Respite Offer to coincide: *£400 off a respite stay at Birchwood House*.
We hope that you’ve had a wonderful March thus far as we head into the brighter seasons of the year.
