On a lovely sunny day I made ny way up Chatburn Road to High Brake Nursing Home to be with my sister.
It turned out to be a truly magical afternoon.
Young and not-so-young residents, staff and families, ranging from two years to 90 years and counting got together for the home’s summer fete.
There were games in the garden, including a coconut shy, ten-pin bowling, even hoola-hoop and skipping.
The brilliant Phil Knight Experience entertained with songs on the ukulele and guitar, ranging from Blackpool Belle to medleys of Buddy Holly and country and western.
Dancing broke out – a real joy to see young and not-so-young dancing to the beat. A lovely buffet and toffee tasting ended the most enjoyable afternoon.
So a big thank you to all the staff at High Brake. Much appreciated by all.
