Summer Fete

Summer Fete

23rd Aug, 2018

Summer is finally here, the weather is beautiful and predictions are it’s here to stay (for a while anyway!)

The staff at St Georges have had their heads together to decide on a theme for our annual Summer Fete/Garden Party

The Summer fete is scheduled to take place on 23rd August and the theme this year is…………..1940’s Land Army.

A theme that we are sure our residents will thoroughly enjoy. We are hoping that our staff will throw themselves into the spirit of things and come to St Georges that day in 1940’s costume to bring the atmosphere to life.

If you have any great ideas to further enhance the lives of our residents, or indeed if you could lend a hand on the day, please speak to either Jenn or Natalie.

St Georges Day Celebrations

St Georges Day Celebrations

23rd Apr, 2018

On 23rd April, St Georges will be holding its customary celebrations in honour of our namesake St George.

Every nation has its own ‘Patron Saint’ who in times of great peril is called upon to help save the country from its enemies. St David is the patron saint of Wales, St Andrew of Scotland and St Patrick of Ireland – St George being the patron saint of England.

Did you know – In the Middle Ages the dragon was commonly used to represent the Devil. Unfortunately the many legends connected with St. George’s name are fictitious, and the slaying of the ‘Dragon’ was first credited to him in the 12th century.

St. George, so the story goes, killed a dragon on the flat topped Dragon Hill in Uffington, Berkshire, and it is said that no grass grows where the dragon’s blood trickled down!

Please come along and join in our celebrations, Kosh Fallows will be returning to entertain and get us all singing along to our favourite tunes.

See Natalie for more information on tickets.
