The National Citizenship Service visited for two weeks in August. This is a programme that Trafford runs throughout the year that supports the vocational, personal, social and academic development of young people. During the two weeks the group weeded the garden, painted benches and purchased plants, a gazebo and lighting for the garden. They also threw a party for the residents to show then what they had achieved in the fortnight they were with us. The end result was well received and the garden looked lovely too!
The annual Strawberry Tea was held on the 23rd August and the weather was exceptionally kind to us. Refreshments, strawberries, scones and cream were served outside on the terrace and a small lucky dip raffle was organised for our residents. Overall it was a very enjoyable afternoon and our thanks go out to the Friends group for organising it.
