St Georges building work complete!

Our home has had it's exterior walls repainted throughout July & the work is now complete, & the scaffolding has finally gone.  We couldn't lose our iconic pink 'look'as the building has been pink since it was built back in Victorian times.  Along with the new driveway tarmac we hope you'll agree......we're looking very smart!  Thanks to everyone for their patience throughout the disruption, normal service has now been resumed!


A slightly quieter month . The highlight of the month was out Burns lunch celebration . We enjoyed some traditional Scottish Fare,  haggis, scottish tablet and tea cakes . We have also enjoyed some craft sessions making bird feeders and sun catchers . The bulbs we planted in the Autumn are finally starting to appear. We are looking forward to the Spring. 


In true form we celebrated Christmas in Style . We enjoyed carol concerts , parties and lots of sparkle. A christmas donkey came to visit us and the staff entertained the residents at their Christmas party. We put on our party frocks and went out for lunch at the Beambridge Inn. Fred produced a wonderful lunch on Christmas Day. On New Years Eve we saw the new year in at lunch time with bubbles and the chimes, we then played traditional game in the afternoon 


The work continued and there was the inevitable delay. We did not let it get us down , the residents referred to it as our 'Dunkirk spirit". To get away from the noise we went out for afternoon tea. Finally the great day arrived and we had an official opening of the lounge . Edna and Charlie from BBC Somerset cut the ribbon. We marked the occasion with a party . We are really enjoying the beautiful new lounge.


We had a very busy month supporting our teams during the Olympics. We enjoyed a sensory afternoon tasting some exotic fruits,and chocolates ,smelling beautiful oils and sampling some colourful cocktails. Our vegetables grew really well and we have big plans for next year. A large group of us attended the Taunton flower show and wondered at the beautiful displays.
