July was a hectic month here at Axbridge Court Nursing Home! With cream teas, our regular book club, pamper sessions and of course, watching Team GB in the Olympics.

Cream Teas during a storm!

What better way to start July than with a cream tea for our residents! We all gathered in the lounge as a storm was brewing and had a lovely time. It was decided that no matter how a scone was adorned (the Devon way or the Cornish way) – it was delicious.

Read and Return Book Club

Our read and return book club has gone from strength to strength with several donations from staff and friends. Our residents now have access to many genres of books and enjoy swapping and choosing new stories.


The Olympics

We really looked forward to the opening of the Olympic Games here at Axbridge Court. One of our lovely residents was born in Japan and we prepared some artwork with her help, we also flew the Japanese flag with our Olympic ‘glitzy’ rings! We also held our very own Olympic beach ball competition which was great fun – Team Axbridge were all winners!         

A bit of pampering….

Lots of our residents are regularly attending hand pamper sessions in which they enjoy bubbles, a hand massage and choosing hand creams – who doesn’t love a pamper session?!

Weather Watching

Our residents have become avid weather watchers and we have dodged many showers in order to use the garden areas adorned with a super array of sun hats (and the occasional ice-cream, of course).

Singing with the lovely Maria

Maria is a favourite visitor to our home and once again she sang her way through the decades for our residents. Her visits are always well attended and enjoyed by not only our residents but staff as well.

Quiz time

By popular demand we are having regular ‘Quiz Days’ and hold a general knowledge quiz for all twice a month. We have a clever bunch at Axbridge Court and we all enjoy lots of fun, laughter and competitive enthusiasm!

Roll on August – we can’t wait to find out what you have in store for us!

We hope you are all safe and well and send our love to you. From everyone at Axbridge Court.
