Care Home Open Day 2017

To mark National Care Home Open Day on Friday 16th June, Canford Healthcare Homes across the country opened their doors to the public, with Tunbridge Wells Care Centre transforming their reception into a Rock ‘n’ Roll themed 50s-diner.

The black and white tiles that covered the walls set the scene for the very first Tunbridge Wells 50s disco/diner, with all staff in full 50s costume including neck scarves, coloured glasses, black wigs and the men trying their best Elvis impressions, they were ready to party.

Trip to Hever Castle

Residents and staff enjoyed a fascinating visit to the historic Hever Castle.

This stunning castle was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn and with its beautiful gardens and world famous maze, it was a lovely place to spend the day.

The weather was very hot with clear blue skies so ice creams were certainly the order of the day!
