Beach party at Bolton care home

By 10th September, 2020 Press Releases Comments Off

BLUE seas, palm trees and golden sands were brought to a Bolton care home – as residents were treated to a beach party.

Residents at Lever Edge Care Home, on Lever Edge Lane, Great Lever, enjoyed a day at the seaside all without leaving the comfort of their lounge.

They dressed in leis while taking photos in front of a beach scene, which included a backdrop of a tropical island, inflatable palm trees, spades, buckets and sand.

There was also music, games and traditional seaside snacks such as hotdogs, burgers, popcorn, candyfloss and cockles.

Margaret Egan, 74, said: “I really enjoyed it. It brough back memories of taking my children to the beach.”

John Gorner, 66, said: “The best part was eating the cockles.”

Alice Shields, 95, said: “The day was fabulous. It felt like we’d really been on holiday.”

Alix Isherwood, activities coordinator at Lever Edge Care Home, said: “Our residents have been asking to go to the beach, which isn’t possible at the moment, so we brought the beach to them.

“We had a great time at our beach party. Everyone enjoyed the games and music, including Agadoo and the Macarena. Resident Margaret Egan made the afternoon even better by putting on a show for us with her fabulous dancing.”
