We always like to get out in the local area, and with our friends from Oomph Wellness we all hopped on the bus and headed out to the nearby shopping centre.

It was great to have a mooch around the shops, and pick out some much needed essentials. It’s so important for our residents to feel part of their community and to carry on doing things such as shopping that they used to do, which gives them a huge sense of independence and confidence.

Once we had finished our shopping trip we all headed off to the Mecca Bingo Club, which the majority of our residents are now members of. There is now two ways to play, you can choose the traditional way or you can use an ipad – which automatically selects the numbers for you, very easy!

There was so much conversation between our residents, remembering their trips out to the local Bingo Hall in the 70s and 80s – so coming out for Bingo felt like a real treat for the ladies.

Resident Brenda finished the day off in the style, winning one of the rounds – well done Brenda. Everyone tucked into some lunch once the bingo had finished – it was a great day had by all!
