A Skelmersdale care home threw opened its doors to the local community by inviting them to enjoy its annual family fun day.

Residents, their family and friends, staff and members of the local community joined together to enjoy Birch Green’s 2018 summer fayre.

Despite less than perfect weather conditions, the event had a fantastic turn out which saw people enjoying games, stalls, the ever-popular tombola and a delicious sweets and treats shop.

There was a selection of food choices to tuck into including a Thai food stall and a BBQ which had a never-ending queue of people lining up to satisfy their taste buds.

Clare, a member of our team at Birch Green, kindly volunteered her son, Bradley, a talented singer and dancer, to keep guests entertained throughout the day.

Residents and guests enjoyed having their photo taken at the seaside photo booth which provided everyone with some fun memories to share.

Vicky Sudworth, general manager at Birch Green said: “The Birch Green lifestyle and wellbeing team deliver meaningful activities throughout the year and the summer fayre is something they all look forward to. 

“Thank you to everyone involved in organising this event, especially Edna, a resident at Birch Green who sold raffle tickets throughout the day and loved getting involved and chatting to guests.

“It was lovely to see residents catching up with loved ones as well as making some new friends from the local community. We can’t wait to do it all again next year”
