Alma Barn Lodge Care Home Hosts Unforgettable Family Fun Day

4 June 2024

Alma Barn Lodge Care Home welcomed the community with open arms on Saturday, June 1st, for a spectacular Family Fun Day. Running from 11:30am to 4:30pm, the event was packed with activities and entertainment for all ages, ensuring a day filled with laughter, joy, and memorable moments.

The day featured an incredible lineup of acts and performances, including a thrilling circus act with highwire thrills and dazzling fire-breathing performances. Attendees were mesmerised by the Animal Magic Show and delighted by the classic Punch & Judy show that brought a touch of nostalgia. The petting zoo, with its adorable animals, was a hit with both young and old, and everyone enjoyed meeting Alfie the Therapy Donkey.

Creativity was also in the spotlight, as the Ribbertyrabbit Crafting corner allowed participants to unleash their artistic talents, making unique pieces of artwork to take home as souvenirs. The crafting corner was a popular spot, with many attendees creating memorable pieces to commemorate the day.

The entertainment lineup was equally impressive. Guests grooved to lively tunes at the disco, enjoyed performances by local singers, and explored unique finds at various craft stalls. The music and dancing added to the festive atmosphere, filling the air with laughter and smiles.


The event was a resounding success. The atmosphere was buzzing with excitement as residents, families, friends, and staff enjoyed the array of activities and attractions. From the thrilling circus workshops and mesmerising highwire acts to the adorable petting zoo and creative craft stalls, there was truly something for everyone.



Alma Barn Manager, Su Heller, expressed her joy, saying, “The Family Fun Day was a true celebration of community spirit and togetherness. Seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces as they enjoyed the various activities and attractions warmed my heart. It was a joy to witness the bonds between local residents, families, friends, and staff grow stronger throughout the day. Events like these remind us of the power of coming together and creating lasting memories. I am incredibly grateful to all who made this day possible, and I look forward to many more moments of shared happiness in the future.”

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all the entertainers for bringing so much fun and joy, and to the volunteers for their invaluable help in making the day a triumph. The Alma Barn Family Fun Day was a testament to the strength of community spirit and the joy of coming together to create cherished memories.
