Thou shalt not grow old, As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them.
The 11th November marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.
On 4 August 2018 churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, started 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation.
As a mark of respect we will be holding something special for our residents for the whole week of 11th November.
Lest we forget…

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

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.

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.
