Activities during August

25th August

Activity at Swarthmore has been full of adventure and exercise this month.

Vera Dornhard Dance School from GX community hall performed all types of dance for our residents. The graceful, energetic and very talented dancers performed sequences for the residents. For those who wanted to take part in dancing, they were given the opportunity to dance with an experienced partner.  Lots of reminiscing for those who used to go dancing in their youth.  Amazing how the moves come back to those who used to dance, some things just don't leave our memories!  Like riding a bike.

Colin from Birds of Prey Trust kindly brought along his birds and gave a talk about his involvement in caring for injured birds. Residents were able to hold a bird if they wanted to. This was captivating for everyone watching too.

KSpark Entertainment gave us an afternoon of Bollywood dancing. Residents learnt about new cultures and dance moves, yet another energetic afternoon.

Rushymead Residential Care home invited everyone to have afternoon tea in their beautiful garden. The weather was kind, so it was a lovely afternoon to sit out on a Summer’s afternoon.

There's so much more happening - follow our Facebook page, this is just a taster of the energy we have at Swarthmore…..
