Residents get spooky for Halloween Party (2017)
Serenita certainly looked the part, as the home was decorated for their Halloween party. As a result residents and staff turned into scary Halloween characters with face painting and costumes.
The eerie afternoon saw the residents apple bobbing, searching for prizes among wet snakes! (spaghetti) and taking part in a raffle…
AC/DC Tribute Concert
Two residents and Nicky Tweedle, Activities coordinator, had a wonderful night out at a rock concert. One of the residents is a huge fan of AC/DC, and there was a tribute concert at the Tropicana. Therefore Serenita purchased tickets for him as a surprise birthday gift.
It was very rewarding to see him still ‘rockin’ and smiling from ear to ear !! [Nicky]
Serenita Art Exhibition – “Earth, Wind and Fire”
Serenita host an exhibition of art by residents in the theme of ‘Earth,Wind and Fire’ .
Using pencils, paint, photography, sculpture and computer art… the residents showcased some amazing pieces. Consequently relatives attended and staff admired the work which gave a real boost of self esteem to all the artists.
Residents and staff at Serenita ARBD dressed up and had a spectacular spooky day for Halloween. There was a themed buffet, quiz and karaoke. Friends and relatives came along and joined in with the all day long activities.
The décor was designed, made and put up by residents…who really got into the ‘spirit’ of the day !!
Residents of Serenita ARBD commemorated Armistice Day this year by making their own tributes and poppy wreaths for a ”table of remembrance”.
They adorned the table with flags from every nationality living and working at Serenita. They also researched life histories of relatives who have fought in wars and put photos on the table for others to read.
There was a creative writing competition about what the day means to them personally and everyone observed a two minute silence at the 11th hour, of the 11th day in the 11th month.
Sunday morning saw residents attending a memorial service in Weston Super Mare. Watching the parade of armed forces and veterans, and poppy wreaths being laid at the cenotaph in Grove park by The Lord Mayor.
The park was full with other members of the community also showing their respects. It was a very moving experience for everyone.
