This week the residents and staff at Heath Lodge celebrated Shrove Tuesday in style.
The Holt-based care home, which specialises in residential, respite, and dementia care, celebrated pancake day together with a choice of topping and the tossing of pancakes! Residents and staff enjoyed a chat and a chuckle at this annual event, evoking fond childhood memories for some residents.
Residents were given an activity pack, this included the history around shrove Tuesday, a word search a quiz a crossword and art activity.
They then joined in making pancakes for lunch, which they thoroughly enjoyed, and were able to sample a selection of sweet and savoury pancakes which included, traditional lemon and sugar, Fruit Compote, Chocolate and banana fondant, and Cheese caramelised onion and ham.
They were then treated to a pancake race where the staff showed off their flipping skills, which resulted in the residents laughing with joy.
