Residents of the Nightingale Road residential home regularly enjoy a diverse calendar of activities and last week was no different, as the home’s activity coordinator treated them to a week of seasonal fun to celebrate the start of autumn.


The residents spent a morning baking a traditional wheat sheaf loaf, helping one another with the intricate detail of the festival bread. Another of the week’s activities included making Guy Fawkes dummies, which were used to adorn the dining room during their harvest service and will be sure to come in handy on Bonfire Night too.


The autumnal activities concluded with a special harvest church service within the home’s dining room, residents and staff were joined by Kemsing Church for seasonal hymns and readings.


Kay Hawkins, activity coordinator at The Dynes, commented: “I’m always on the lookout for innovative things to do with the residents, so we love to get involved with seasonal activities as it keeps things fresh and exciting.


“With the winter quickly approaching, we’re looking forward to our activities changing accordingly, trying new things like cheese and wine evenings, bonfire night celebrations and Christmas parties!”
