Face Masks

Thank you to all the wonderful people that have made face masks for us. There are too many to name individually. The different colours and patterns have become a real talking point with all the residents. We really appreciate all the hard work and time that has gone into making them.

Pompeii 28 April

The residents enjoyed a virtual walk through part of Pompeii this afternoon. It was fascinating to see all the well-preserved ruins, left behind by a city buried in Vesuvius’s wake. I wonder where our next walk will take us.

Chocoalte Tasting 11 April

The residents chocolate tasting on Easter Saturday.

These are a few of the different types of chocolate that we tried during our tasting this afternoon. 85% cocoa, 70% cocoa, which were rather bitter. The Ginger 60%, Raspberry, orange and almond 47% cocoa and Butterscotch milk 30% were very nice but the Venezuelan single bean was by far everyone’s favourite. They were all delicious and enjoyed by all.
