International Men’s Day
This month it was International Men’s day and we seized the opportunity to celebrate our male Residents.
Many of our male Residents enjoy visiting the pub, as this is not possible at the moment, we brought the pub to them! Our activities coordinator Sarah and one of our Residents Muriel worked very hard to create ‘The Deer Stalker’ pub to surprise the men! No trip to the pub would be complete without a pub lunch and Chef Martin created a delicious traditional pub menu, which everyone enjoyed! We bought a large selection of local ales for the men to sample. To help create an authentic pub setting we sourced some traditional beer mats and printed handmade pub menus. The bar was stocked with old fashioned pub snacks and for a nostalgic touch Chef Martin even made homemade picked eggs!
We purchased a dart board and spent a fabulous afternoon playing darts, cards and of course enjoying our beers and snacks. Everyone agreed it was a fabulous surprise, the only thing up for debate was… which is better: ‘bitter’ or ‘ale?’
