Latest News & Events
27-03-2015 Today our residents have visited Hobby Craft in Crayford to pick up some new tips and techniques to bring back to the home and put to the test during arts and crafts activities. They enjoyed a class in box decorating and have even been able to create their own boxes to bring home. Back at the home we've been testing our knowledge with a quiz and also trying our luck at Bingo.

We have had a selection of arts and crafts ranging from cake decorating to making Easter egg holders!

This week Tracy our Activities Co-ordinator took a handful of our residents to Lindy Lou's Vintage Tea Rooms in Crayford where they enjoyed tea and cake by the besides the river cray. They also liked reading the selection of dated newspapers and listening to music from the past for a step back in time. Also this week we had one of our fortnightly evening events.

27-02-2015 This week at Groveland we sadly have to say goodbye and good luck to our Activities Co-Ordinator Lee. He has been with us since day one and the residents adore him but Lee has made every effort to make his last week a special one. Earlier in the week Lee took the residents out for a tasty Toby Carvery lunch in Bexleyheath. We also had our favourite 'Nightingale Dogs' come to visit and play games with the residents. Today the residents can send him off in style with a goodbye afternoon party where we can all enjoy cheese platters, wine, tea and cake. We wish you all the luck in your new adventure.
