Care home residents enjoy sports day in Milton Keynes

    Residents and staff at Lakeview Lodge Care Home in Milton Keynes enjoyed hosting a sports day last week.

    The event was organised as part of Country Court in Bloom, the annual gardening competition organised by Country Court, the company behind Lakeview.

    The residents were able to reminisce on their school days and enjoy a range of inclusive races.

    Residents competed to win for their teams which consisted off the ‘Top floor Tornados’ the ‘Middle Floor Muddlers’ and the ‘Ground Floor Grizzlier’s’.

    Residents and staff cheered their friends along with pom pom’s as they competed in a range of races including The Egg & spoon race, Three-Legged Race, Ring Toss and Water Balloon Throwing.

    Staff joined in with the spirit of the day, competing in a three-legged race, which had everyone laughing and enjoying the fun. “Mum really enjoyed it” commented one family member, another said “A wonderful time for everyone”.

    “We all had a wonderful day; it was lovely to see everyone come together in a supportive atmosphere. It brought out our resident’s competitive side and it was wonderful to see the smiles on their faces when they won.

    "Our hospitality team also did a fantastic job keeping everyone refreshed and hydrated with their tasty range of mocktails” said Customer Relations Manager, Sharon Guntrip.
