We put on the kettle and put our best foot forward for tea dance fun

September 9th 2013

On Thursday 12th September we will be holding an event that involves all of our residents’ favourite things – music, dancing, tea and cake.

The tea dance will be open to residents and relatives and, as well as music from the 1950s, the tea for the occasion has been provided by Care UK’s preferred supplier PG Tips.

The company has kindly provided us with a selection of six different flavoured teas and a CD packed with music our residents love.

Verity Tofts, our activities coordinator, said: “Everyone is really looking forward to the event. Our residents love music from the 1950s and it is perfect because if you don’t want to get up and cut a rug you can hand jive the afternoon away in your chair!”

To get everyone in the swing the team are dressing up in 1950s costumes and our wonderful kitchen team are cooking up a buffet for the evening.

Verity said: “As our residents also enjoy a cup of tea I hope that many of them try tasting some of the more exotic teas that we will have on offer on the day.”

The team at Tall Trees is passionate about ensuring that it feels like home – both for residents and their loved ones. Residents’ families are encouraged to stay for as long as they like, and join in home life. Residents – many of whom are local – are also supported to continue playing a part in local community life.
