Courtesy of the Moving Memory Dance Theatre Company, the residents were invited to get involved with an exciting production, which would take them back to their younger days, when summers were spent along the Kent coastline.


The actors had completely transformed the home’s activity centre into a spectacular seaside, complete with a backdrop of blue skies, seagulls, rocks and a boat!


The residents enjoyed both watching and getting involved with the nostalgic production, rowing the boat, pulling the rope and waving to passers-by.


Following the action-packed activity, the residents had built up quite an appetite, so they relaxed whilst they were served a picnic lunch of cucumber sandwiches and pink lemonade.


Bev Furr, activity coordinator at Connors House commented: “The residents loved the activity, as whilst it was animated, it was still very calming and they all said they felt very relaxed after. We are all looking forward to seeing what their next visit will bring!”
