Catherine House Care Home pulled out all the stops for their beach-themed extravaganza, bursting with energy and nostalgia. Residents (fondly referred to as family members) and team members enjoyed the feeling of sun-kissed shores and salty sea breezes.

The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the captivating performance by Professor Paul Wheeler whose traditional Punch and Judy Show had everyone in stitches as the classic characters came to life, their antics creating moments of joy and amusement that transcended age.

But the entertainment was just the beginning! The dining room had been put-together with beach-themed colourful tablecloths, inflatable palm trees and tropical sunglasses were perched on noses, adding a playful touch to the festivities. The team also brought the beach to the home, by adding sand on to the tables and floor.

For many of the family members the event was more than just an afternoon of fun with nostalgic moments of spending time at the seaside, especially with

the recent trips to Weymouth. Family member David commented “it’s brought back a lot of memories from my childhood.”

As the party drew to a close, the sense of fun lingered in the air, a reminder of the power of community to uplift and inspire. Catherine House Care Home continues it’s unwavering commitment to nurturing this vibrant atmosphere for its family members and the wider Frome community.
