Strawberry Tea Welcomes Urszula 

Strawberries and a delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake were the centrepiece of The Vale’s Summer Tea.Residents enjoyed the special time spent with new their Facilities & Hospitality Manager Urszula Osekowska.

Urszula said “I am really enjoying my new role, having also previously worked in the senior home care sector. Everyone is really lovely, jolly and happy and I especially like the fascinating stories and lives of our Residents. There are plenty of activities here to keep us busy, it’s a real community.”

And of course, there was a summer quiz. Quizzers answered questions about the history of the beach ball, ingredients in a summer pudding and Mungo Jerry’s famous summer hit ‘In the Summertime’. Talking of music, the summer-themed music quiz was a real hit. From Bryan Adams ‘Summer of 69’, to the Beatles ‘Here comes the Sun’ and of course Cliff Richard’s ‘Summer Holiday’. The classical questions proved a little more tricky, Vivaldi’s ‘Summer’ from ‘The Four Seasons’. Congratulations to Michael and his team for winning by a mere half a point!
