August Newsletter


As the hot weather is here now please ensure you are drinking plenty, we have a wide range of cold drinks on the servery.

Salads will be starting on Tuesday 7th May so soup will be removed from the menu for the summer; we still have jacket potatoes and omelettes as alternatives, and don’t forget we have Bacon Rolls for sale for £1 between 9am-11am. If you require us to make a birthday cake for you the kitchen will need a weeks’ notice.

Please chat with Deborah & Nikki if there is anything you are unable to eat and they will do their best to find an alternative for you. Please make sure you order the correct meal when you arrive as Deborah and Nikki will be unable to change this when they are serving lunch, also when you phone & order a lunch please can you specify what lunch you require if it is the one on the menu or the alternative to save any confusion.  Remember lunch must be booked by 11.00am.  We also have a nice range of homemade cakes, biscuits, plus sweets and chocolate treats. Please Note only Day Centre Drinks can be consumed here, we cannot have people bringing in their own drinks. If there is a drink (non-alcoholic) that you would like to see on the servery please let us know, please do not bring in drinks and ask us to keep behind the Servery, we do have a nice range of cold drinks, hot drinks (Tea, Coffee, Cappuchinos,Horlicks, Bovril,Hot Chocolate and cartons of juice and water. We have put survey forms on all tables, please fill them in and place in plastic sleeve by the white board in the dining room, we cannot improve if we don’t have your comments.  PLEASE NOTE THE SERVERY WILL BE CLOSED 12-1PM EVERY DAY. We will NOT be storing any items in the fridge or freezer that have been purchased from the shops as we have had a number of issues that have arisen so please be mindful of this when purchasing your goods.

Please also be mindful on how many shopping bags you take home on the bus as we are limited for space!

We are now selling a variety of items on our ‘Sales Trolley’, wrapping paper, sellotape, bingo dabbers, age birthday cards, tissues, deodorants, combs etc., please let us know if you would like to be able to purchase any other items from here and we will do our best to provide them at a very reasonable price.

We have our entertainment programme for August,  Please do participate in our entertainment and activities afternoons, it takes a lot of time and effort to organise, plus it is a means of social interaction for everyone, and as they say ‘the more the merrier’.

We have also introduced a craft & art table in the lounge, please spend some time during the day to test your skills ask Louise or Helen for help to pass the morning by.

On Monday 12th August we have our £5 pub special day,pimms and a pint with Bingo in the afternoon, please book your place in the office. See separate poster for details.

On 20th August we will have another £5 special August extravaganza, please book with myself or Wendy in the office.

We have taken on board all the ideas you have put to us re trips out, I have attached a sheet with all the details and prices of entry to places and any extras you will need to add to this. Please note that if we are going to organise these sometimes the start time may be earlier than normal so you get longer at places, once you have looked please see myself or Wendy to let us know your interest.
