Dear <<First Name>>,

Relative’s meeting
Thank you to those relatives who were able to join us via zoom for our virtual relatives meeting on Wednesday. This meeting was an opportunity for us to share any updates and developments within the home with you and an opportunity to hear from you, share your visiting experiences and answer any questions that you may have. 

Further to yesterday’s discussion, we discussed the new guidance to support safe visiting, where a second designated visitor can be nominated and IPC measures. Indoor visits will be subject to a Lateral flow test and must be in line with government guidance and our infection, prevention, and control measures.

So, what have we been up to this last week!

Virtual Quiz Night
Last Friday we held our very first virtual Quiz night. For those who were able to join us, I think you will agree that we all had a great time. A big thank you to Jeanette’s husband Darren A’Court for being our ‘Quizmaster’ and to all who made this event possible. We hope to do this again very soon.

St Georges Day
We continue in our preparation of St Georges Day. We particularly enjoyed naming famous ‘Georges’. Lots of fun trying to recognise the pictures and putting names to faces.

A Fish and Chip lunch has been booked for today from Callaway’s fish and chip shop which we are all looking forward to.

Eyes Down!
Another great Bingo session on Wednesday afternoon. Thank you to Steph for being our caller. Everyone had a fun afternoon!

Happy Birthday John! 
Many Happy Returns to John who celebrated his birthday at the weekend. We hope you enjoyed your special day!
