Residents at a Spilsby care home invited all to come and enjoy having fun during an open day held recently.
Over 40 guests including, the Mayor of Spilsby, Coun Peter Grant, and members of the town council attended the special day held at Eresby Hall, Ancaster Avenue on June 21.
There was a tour to start with, to show guests inside, there was also games with balls and bean bags to show how residents keep active.
“Peter Mackinder also visited to present some poems and songs in Lincolnshire dialect which was fun,” said Andie Logue activities coordinator.
“The day was designed to invite the public to see how we spend our day and show what a pleasant place it is. There’s lots of activities on a daily basis and although our doors are always open in a sense, I feel the residents really enjoyed showing off what we do here,” Andie added.
After lunch, residents enjoyed a zumba session with Sam Sorrell who attends twice per month.
The Eresby Hall tea room was also open serving delicious cream cakes and visitors could enjoy board games in the on site pub.
“We hope it helped change people’s perceptions of what a care home is like, we have lots of fun and activities during the week here and all really enjoyed it,” Andie explained.
“One of our residents even welcomed people at the reception, I think she had a lot of fun,” Andie said.
