Bonfire Night Gives Residents A Warm Glow At Roberttown

7 November 2020

bonfire night at Roberttown

The November lockdown didn’t stop Residents at Roberttown Care Home enjoying a bonfire night to remember.

On the run-up to the 5th of November, Colleagues asked the Residents what they’d most like to do during the month. A traditional bonfire night was one of the most popular suggestions, particularly as it held so many memories of childhood fun.

The team put together a great evening, with Residents making traditional guys called Dick and Liddy (who were dressed in full PPE, of course). There was a bonfire, delicious refreshments and a pumpkin carving competition. 

Activities Co-ordinator Glenys Kellet said that it was such a big success that they’re already planning the 2021 event.

Grace said: “It was great fun to have a proper, traditional Bonfire Night without the fireworks.

“Everyone loved it, and I got a lot of lovely comments from the Residents. Some were even talking about what a good time they’d had days later.”

Delicious mugs of hot chocolate accompanied the evening entertainment to keep the Residents warm.

Glenys said Team Roberttown hopes that next year’s event will be even more spectacular, and that it can be attended by more bonfire night revellers.

Glenys said: “Next year things are likely to be very different and hopefully we can invite the Residents’ families to enjoy the fun too!”
