I’m sure that you will not have failed to notice that there was an absence of production of your last newsletter. This was due to a certain person being on leave!! We will name no names but we are now back on track.
The Land Army Girls
We all really enjoyed our evening when we were entertained by the Land Army girls. They sang some favourite songs which everyone joined in. We also saw some lovely memorabelia which took many of us back to childhood. They will be returning for Christmas which we know you are very much looking forward to already.

Well there we are we have said the C word. Shelagh has now booked up most of our entertainment but forward warning that our party will be Tuesday 11th December with Full Beam. Rumour has it that staff will be dressing up!!
Just a couple of things to say on sponsorships. Terry recently had his head shaved which raised just over £100 for the Macmillan Cancer charity. Also Shelagh’s sponsered swim was due to take place in September but has had to be delayed. The date will be re arranged but thank you to everyone that sponsored them both
Well there is so much to tell you this month! Since our last newsletter Phil our gardener has retired, we now have a contractor Toby that comes in once a week. Also we have now been able to engage a Manicurist; we know how much you all missed having your nails done. Our staff have been wonderful in helping with this but you will soon have Jenni that will come in. We have also found another hairdresser Britt who will work on a Thursday and Friday. Shelagh will continue to do hair on a Monday and Tuesday but obviously with a home this big it was a struggle to get around. Britt will cover holidays to so please make her welcome and get to know her. We have also had a few changes within our care team as well. Thank you to all of you that came to our recent resident’s meeting. We will soon display the findings of our recent survey that we sent out to you all.
We also now have a community board that sits in our car park. We plan to advertise all of our functions and staff vacancies in there. We will shortly let you know about a date for Firework’s night, there will be a charge for visitors for this but I am sure you will agree that we do put on quite a display. The cost will include either a burger or hotdog. Thank you for your continued support it is so very much appreciated by us all at Mountside.
