Care home welcomes community to summer fayre
STAFF at a care home threw open its doors to the local community by inviting them along to its annual family fun day.
Residents of the Birch Green Care Home in Ivydale, Skelmersdale were joined by family, friends, staff and members of the local community to enjoy the 2018 summer fayre.
And organisers said the event had a “fantastic turn-out” with visitors enjoying games, stalls, the ever-popular tombola and a delicious sweets and treats shop.
There was also a selection of food choices to tuck into, including a Thai food stall and a BBQ.
Entertainment was kindly provided throughout the day by talented singer and dancer, Bradley whose mum, Clare is a member of the team at Birch Green.
And residents and their guests enjoyed having their photo taken at the seaside-style photo booth which provided everyone with some fun memories to share.
General manager at Birch Green, Vicky Sudworth, said: “Our lifestyle and wellbeing team deliver meaningful activities throughout the year and the summer fayre is something they all look forward to.
“I would like say thank-you to everyone involved in organising this event, especially Edna, a resident at Birch Green who sold raffle tickets throughout the day and loved getting involved and chatting to guests.
“It was lovely to see residents catching up with loved ones, as well as making some new friends from the local community. We can’t wait to do it all again next year.”
