A SUMMER fair held at a Droitwich care home has been hailed a great success and has raised £170 to pay for activities and treats for the residents living there.
Ravenstone Care Home, which is based on St Andrews Road and provides care for 41 people, opened its doors to the public, welcoming friends and relatives from the local community to celebrate with the residents in the sunshine.
One resident John Tarleton took the role of Ravenstone Mayor, and opened the fair with a speech to residents and guests.
The residents transformed the home’s garden into a stage, welcoming local musician Linda Hartley to perform live music.
Linda entertained visitors young and old with her Rock ‘n’ Roll Puppet Show.
Hayley Scarborough, Ravenstone’s peripatetic manager, said: “Larchwood Care is keen for residents to meet and interact with the local community and we are pleased so many people from the surrounding area attended this year’s summer fete.
“Ravenstone encourages residents to be involved with projects such as this, and many of our residents, including John, the Mayor of Ravenstone, were involved in the planning of the fair, and they got a lot of enjoyment from it.”
She added the home strived to put on a range of activities for both groups and individuals as it felt it was important residents’ interests and hobbies were catered for.
“Everyone had a fantastic time, and we look forward to welcoming local people back to the home for another event soon.”
