One of the lady's at Skell Lodge turned 90 years young this week. Staff, family and friends all joined in with the celebrations this weekend , we held a buffet lunch on the day. The lady used to be an office worker and an accountant so a member of staff made a cake that replicates an old style type writer in Black and white which i think you will agree, looks fantastic!!
Everyone had a brilliant day and ate far too much!

Each year our homes all participate in the 'Doorstep Challenge'. All homes were given a budget of £100 to spend however they wished, whether it be on seeds, flowers or plants to make the entrance to the homes look colourful, bright and attractive. This is a brilliant way to get everyone involved and the residents love watching the flowers and seeds flourish over the months. There will be an overall winner and three regional winners, which will be judged in the next few weeks.
We wish everyone good luck!
