Egerton Lodge News

We would like to thank Tony Butler for returning back to Egerton Lodge with his amazking collection of animals. We were luckly enough to see tortoise, lizards, spiders, millipedes, snakes, ferets, an owl and a jungle nymph.

St Valentine’s Day

Valentine roses were a wonderful surprise for our residents, handed to residents by Lisa and Stuart. They looked amazing when later displayed.

Kirsty is now a monthly part of our program. She looks so glamourous in her ‘vintage’ dresses and plays a wide variety of well known songs.

The annual Christmas party lived up to its reputation regarding the quality and quantity of choices at the buffet, the carols led by Springfield Jazz and the great welcome extended to visitors by the owner, Krishen.

The annual Christmas Tree Festival, when all residents can view the displays at St Mary’s church, kick started our Christmas season. We are determined to decorate our own tree for next year’s festival.

Bonfire Night

Once more Dolly’s husband David was parted from his most comfortable old clothes for Guy Fawkes to wear. Our residents, duly stuffed the arms, legs and body with newspaper, while Dolly’s masterpiece was his thoroughly frightened face. Thanks to Stuart, Karen, Danielle, Krishen, Tracey, Lisa, Dolly, Mandy and Jim for an entertaining evening with the most marvellous display of fireworks and food served.

Tony Butler and his exotic animal and owl encounters was a resounding success but bearded dragons, tarantulas and snakes aren’t for the faint hearted. Congratulations to all those who dared to touch and hold the animals, we have wonderful action photos of the day. Tony is sure to return in the New Year.

The Sage Cross singer came to entertain us with their renditions of well known songs from the musicals. We were treated to two fantastic solos from David, what amazing voices they all had.

In true British seaside tradition we all enjoyed a ‘take away’ fish & chip lunch in boxes. Richard and Karen parked their 1950s caravan on the premises and welcomed residents to join them for tea and biscuits at the caravan whilst displaying artefacts and memorabilia of the time.

Sizzling sausages, big beef burgers and dozens of delicious dishes ensured our Barbeque went with a bang. Springfield Jazz put a ‘spring’ into our steps, whilst familiar faces we transformed with painted images and the sun obligingly shone (except when it rained!)

Steve Orton took us all back to the 50’s and 60’s with his performances of musical classics from that era. A new entertainer of Egerton Lodge whom we would love to welcome back.
