Lest We Forget

As we approach Remembrance Day, Saturday 11th November, Stocks Hall Care Homes have made some impressive displays in honour of this special day.

      

For some of the people living in Stocks Hall Homes and staff members, this is of course a particularly important day of the year.  Memories of war and its losses are with them always.

Poignant displays and marks of respect have been lovingly crafted in each of our Homes.  Shown in the photograph below, people living at Stocks Hall Burscough united together to artistically create a fingerprint canvas to display in the Home’s dining area.

     

Recent photographs below are from an activity by some of the people living at Stocks Hall, Andrew Smith House.   The activity was part of Get Creative, art sessions, and on this occasion it focused on Honouring and remembering the Brave that have fallen.

‘For those Brave who gave their Lives so we could live Ours

The ladies and gents living at the Home chose from poppies or rememberance crosses and painted them, according to Individual taste.  Seen here is  Doreen having a well-earned cuppa after painting her cross. The other lady in the other photo is Joan.

        

Sam Potter, Operations Manager says “I am really proud of everyone who has spent time creating these wonderful displays, as they are completely different.  They are all wonderful and poignant in their own way.”

  

With the rest of our nation, Stocks Hall Care Homes will observe two minutes silence.

Lest We Forget.
