Entertainment at Groveland Park this month is very exciting, as we have two fantastic acts lined up for our residents, their families, friends and members of the local community - will we be seeing you here?

We're kicking the month off this Thursday, with a Beatles Tribute Duo, who will be singing all your favourite Beatles songs, and singing along is most certainly encouraged. Our second act of the month is a classical singer - Gemma has a wealth of experience and has an incredible range, so she's sure to put on a fantastic performance for us all on Thursday 25th.

As always, our events are completely free, and they both include complimentary refreshments too. Please RSVP to events@grovelandpark.co.uk or 01322 523090 - we hope to see you very soon.

A visit from Tickled Pink Productions

We were lucky enough to play host to Tickled Pink Productions on Monday! Established in 2002 as a one-off tour for care homes, the shows were so popular that they never stopped, and we’re lucky enough to keep on welcoming them back.

Their visit this week was amazing – both the singing and dancing were enthralling, bringing some of the residents to tears. It was the Swing Shift, packed with classic songs from the Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe to name a few. The impressive eclectic set was full of Big Band classics, and all the performers wore the most gorgeous costumes – the show even included the light-hearted story of Billy the Milkman and Shirley the Big Band singer, so it was multi-dimensional to keep everyone entertained for the entire performance. To make sure that everyone could join in, there were even songbooks for the residents to refer to during the event!

Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time and we can’t wait to see Tickled Pink Productions back at Groveland Park.

Teaming up with the National Citizen Service

The National Citizen Service is a three-part government-funded youth programme, and it’s all about adventure, discovery and social action – and on Tuesday, we were lucky enough to have a bunch of 15 to 17-year-olds in our midst as part of the initiative.

The idea of the NCS is to bring together schools, community organisations, businesses and individuals to build a stronger and more cohesive society. Its aim is to encourage young to try new things, gain new skills and challenges themselves!

Visiting us as part of their social action, our day started with the NCS members taking charge of running a successful games session; there were several residents and young people playing a selection of games including Scrabble, Connect Four, Draughts and Snakes & Ladders, and of course, there was plenty of chat, tea and biscuits too.

In the afternoon, the young people recited poetry to our residents, followed by both solo and group singing, even throwing in the Kiki Dance moves! Our residents really had a fun-filled day with this fine group of youngsters.

On our parting goodbyes, one of our residents said to them: “It’s lovely to see the young people of today showing that there are good, kind young people out there wanting to make a difference instead of the bad publicity that we so often hear about.”

From everyone here at Groveland Park, we’d like to thank the National Citizen Service for your kindness! We hope to welcome you back into our home again one day.

Groveland Park Art Exhibition

On Tuesday, we opened our doors to the community to show off just how talented our residents are here at Groveland Park – the day was so much fun, but we also managed to raise some money for charity!

By displaying pieces of artwork from both past and present residents, we were able to highlight the talent and hard work possessed by every single one of our in-house artists, and they really did enjoy every moment of the limelight.

We are delighted to say that by selling items of artwork, we managed to raise over £120 for the Greenwich & Bexley Hospice! Well done to all of our residents who took the time to create such wonderful pieces of artwork to help raise funds for such a worthy cause.
