St Catherine’s Nursing summer singalong

St Catherine's Summer Fair

Story and photo by Deborah Blencowe

On Saturday 3rd August, I was invited to St Catherine’s Nursing Home for their Summer Fair. For once the weather held up and it was a glorious day. They held a raffle and tombola which had a large array of lovely prizes, and hosted a bric-a-brac stall, book stall and second hand clothes stall.

There was a barbecue which was very popular with attendees. The entertainment was provided by Tony Verno. Once again I enjoyed songs from Roy Orbison (I Drove All Night), Elvis Presley (Can’t Help Falling in Love) and many, many, more classics. This is exactly what the residents love.
