All the residents came out to enjoy the activities on offer, as well as family, friends and relatives.
Paula Howlett, Avalon’s manager, said: “This was a marvellous team effort organised by our Friends of Avalon which raised £850 towards our Residents Fund.”
Other guest appearances included the Chameleon Battonettes majorettes group, who performed a selection of routines for the residents to enjoy, and entertainment and singing from Magical Memories.
Kingston’s Exotics paid a return visit, attracting a great deal of attention with the various fluffy animals and reptiles they brought for the residents to hold.
There was also a therapy room offering treatments for residents and other visitors, with therapies such as reflexology and Indian head massage.
The stalls included bric-a-brac, cake stalls, and a barbecue, as well as a ‘Kids’ Corner’ with a great range of games such as ‘Hook A Duck’ and ‘Guess the name of the Teddy.’
The prizes that were up for grabs attracted a high level of participation in the raffle and various games, and included tickets for Wookey Hole Caves, a £100 cash prize, a manicure, a ladies’ pamper hamper, a fruit basket and plenty of bubbly.
