Old Fashioned Summer Beach Fun at Cleves Place

August 26th 2015

The rainy weather did not dampen the spirits of residents at Cleves Place who were recently treated to an old fashioned day at the seaside by staff and entertainers.

The seaside show, which was to take place in the grounds of the home, was quickly rescheduled to indoors when the rain showed no signs of letting up during one of the wettest summers.

The show, organised by carer, Tracie Thomson, kicked off with a Cockney knees with singer and entertainer, Brian Shaw, followed by a Punch and Judy show.  The puppets and set were all hand-made by Tracie, and included Punch, Judy, the Policeman and the Crocodile and the script was written by carer, Daniel Flynn who also choreographed the show complete with all the voices!

The seaside show was a resounding success and enjoyed by residents and staff alike with lots of singing and laughter, finished off with a traditional fish and chip lunch, ice cream cornets and candy floss.

There’s a great atmosphere at Cleves Place, helped by our enthusiastic team and keen residents. We take every opportunity to have fun, whether at our own (indoor) street party to commemorate VE Day, or dreaming up unusual sandwich fillings and getting competitive during National Sandwich Week.
