the beautiful flowers from Win's funeral yesterday  were delivered to mount Ephraim afterwards, and some of the residents helped to arrange them into vases for display around the home; a lovely tribute to a much loved lady who will be sadly missed.

In memory of Helen ...

Helen (aka Lady Helen!) recently passed away peacefully and her funeral was held today; a service of thanks for her life. She was a very happy person, always had a smile and enjoyed life to the full. The residents remembered her today with a tea party in the lounge; she will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with her family

Happy Birthday Joan

Wishing a very happy special birthday to our very dear volunteer, Joan. We had cakes with coffee in the library today during the weekly Monday Club ... The residents sang 'happy birthday' even though we couldn't find any candles for the cake !

Happy birthday Marion

                                                 Marion celebrated her birthday on Sunday!

Remembering Olive

We held a memorial tea for Olive on Friday after the funeral service. She used to love the quiz sessions at MEH in particular and so we arranged a general knowledge quiz, hosted by volunteer Christiana, in her honour, after the tea party. it was well attended by her fellow residents - she was such a clever and popular lady and would have been very chuffed!
