Wroxham care home marks Burns Night


Residents and staff at Overbury House in Wroxham donned a Scottish theme last week, as they celebrated Burns Night with a traditional Scottish banquet and entertainment.


Scottish music was played, tartan dress was worn by many and Robert Burns’ famous poetry was recited. A delicious feast of traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties, was also made by the staff at the home for all to enjoy together.


Confirms Gerard Dooley, manager of Overbury House residential home, which is part of the Healthcare Homes group: “We had a lovely afternoon with residents dining together and, following the traditional Scottish meal of haggis, neeps n’ tatties, we had an entertainer read some of Burn’s poetry, which was really well received by all.”


Overbury House provides dedicated residential care for elderly people, including those living with dementia.
