We had a fantastic Red Nose Day at Inglefield Nursing Home in Totland Bay, Isle of Wight! The staff team dressed up for the residents and held a parade. The residents then judged the best costumes – the winners being the 2 Little Red Riding Hoods! We also held a bake sale raising money for Comic Relief.
We are holding a meeting between staff and relatives on the 19th April at 14.00. Please do come along to discuss anything you would like!

On Sunday we had a very special day at Blackwater Mill Residential Home. Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Major General Martin White, visited us to present one of our residents, John Higgins with the Légion d’Honneur. This is the highest decoration one can receive in France. It was presented to Mr Higgins to thank him for the part he played in the D day landings, helping to free the European continent from the Nazis. At Blackwater we held a big party for him where the marine band came to play and local papers attended! All the other residents had a great time joining in and watching the show. Thank you to all who attended.
We had a very special occasion to celebrate yesterday – our lovely resident Babs turned 100! We had a visit from Portsmouth Football club (plus a signed card!), the mayor of Poole, Xena Dion and singer Rebecca who sang Babs a beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday!

We had a lovely visitor last week in the form of a fur ball! This little beauty has yet to be named but was very happy sitting on resident Barbara’s lap!
