Getting Tropical – even in Autumn!


Ladies and Gents enjoyed a tropical day recently in the comfort of their own Home –  Stocks Hall Care Home, Burscough.

Those living at the Home decided which nutritional combination of fruit smoothie they would like, and left the rest to Chef, Mel Innes to freshly prepare for them.

Tropical relaxing music, rainbow coloured garlands and palm trees were just some of the ‘ingredients’ that helped set the ambience for this Tropical Experience Day.


Much fun and laughter filled the Home as people enjoyed pineapples, kiwi, tangerines and strawberries as part of their choice smoothie fruit cocktail mix – this was followed by dancing for those who wished to participate.

Vicki Charles, one of the Activities Staff at the Home said “It was such a fun afternoon, enjoyed by both those living at the Home and the staff.”

“Even a monkey, parrot and a flamingo decided to join us, they caused so much laughter.”
