Valentine’s Day at Charlotte Straker House

By 18th February, 2019 News Comments Off

There was fun on Valentine’s Day last week when we celebrated the most romantic day of the year with a special Valentine’s lunch.

Our Head Cook Debbie made a delicious lunch of roast minted lamb with all the trimmings, and Jayne, our Activities Coordinator, provided a chocolate fountain for pudding, with a table laden with treats to dip into the melted chocolate. Everyone enjoyed trying all the different treats and the most popular “dips” were definitely the marshmallows and home made choux eclairs. .

The tables were set up with red themed decorations, and balloons plus each resident was given a very cute heart box with chocolates inside.

Valentine’s Day evokes so many happy memories for our residents, so it the special lunch was a wonderful opportunity to bring our residents together for the occasion.
