We are proud to announce the
Grange Residential Home has received the
in recognition of work to promote dignity and respect.
Our thanks to all the staff for their kindness and caring throughout a difficult time for everyone during the pandemic.
We are pleased to advise that the Grange is now open for visits from your family and friends although we are currently using an appointments system. Our entertainers who previously braved the cold weather conditions to sing outside our windows will now be able to join us inside the building.
As we look forward to an exciting year ahead we are turning a corner with the birds singing, the evenings a little lighter and the first signs of green shoots peering through the soil in the garden. All over the country people are looking forward to better health, better times and new beginnings.
We have arranged to bring entertainment to you all with the welcome return of favourite singers and new faces.
Make a date for your diary for Tuesday 22nd
February when we welcome ‘Richie Lee’ to the Grange for his first visit. Richie performs songs from the 50s and we hope you will join him in the dining room after lunch and enjoy an afternoon of songs from the ‘Rat Pack’. PJ continues to support the Grange and our singing group; the Elderberries. He will be visiting both morning and afternoon each available Wednesday to accompany our singing practice.
PJ also plays with the Breaston Ukulele Group and we are looking forward to a visit from their members on Wednesday 6th April. Over the coming weeks we anticipate a visit from our local church group who kindly volunteer their time.
Billy’s Fashions will be calling in around Easter time with a range of spring wear. This includes ladies tops, cardigans, lightweight jumpers and elasticated trousers. The range of ladieswear in bright spring colours will be perfect for the warmer weather ahead. Details, order forms and request slips will be available on the notice board nearer the time. Long Eaton Library has resumed deliveries to the Grange. We have a number of new members to the library who are enjoying non-fiction books. Please see Shirley who will gladly discuss and arrange delivery for you. Our ‘Have-a-Go’ Crafters are delighted with their new project and our ‘Frida Kahlo’ sessions are inspiring residents who have adopted Frida’s attitude to prove ‘anything is possible’.
And finally with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee later this year we are planning celebrations for this momentous occasion.
We look forward to sharing a wonderful year together.
We have two birthdays to celebrate this month with Kathleen turning 95 years young on the 4th and Keith enjoying his special day on the 26th. Everyone at the Grange wishes you happiness and the very best of days.f
