Suffolk care home residents enjoy Australia Day

It’s the middle of winter and there is still no end in sight to the pandemic. What better way to lift spirits than to bring on summer – by celebrating Australia Day!

Residents at Allonsfield House care home, in Campsea Ashe, near Woodbridge, enjoyed an indoor “barbie” in the conservatory prepared by chef Darrell Smith.

And there were plenty of smiles as everyone enjoyed Aussie songs, including a chorus of Waltzing Matilda.

The afternoon was completed with an Australian quiz and Australia-themed games.

Home manager Judith Morgan-Worrall, who sported a kangaroo outfit for the occasion, said: “It certainly brightened everyone’s day. Some of our residents have visited Australia in the past and shared their memories.”
