French Partying
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

July 23, 2009: It was a ‘Bonjour’ for everyone at Hatherleigh Care Village recently as they held a French Party for residents and staff at the new purpose-built EMI home. Everyone got into the spirit of the event: staff and residents prepared French flags and bunting while the much-acclaimed catering team showed their culinary skills with a menu of croissants, beef bourguignon and home-made French onion soup accompanied by French baguettes. Home Manager Gra Williams said “Residents and staff started first thing with a ‘Bonjour’ to everyone they met and this really did cause a buzz across the entire home!” French music filled the air as the afternoon was rounded off with a wine and cheese buffet and a French quiz. A variety of cakes and pastries accompanied high tea and the grand finale was a French Flag cake, designed and decorated by the proud residents!
