Falkland Summer Festival Afternoon of Music

By | Kingdom Homes News, Lomond View News | No Comments

Staff and residents at Lomond View Care Home hosted an afternoon of music to which all residents of Falkland were invited. Held to coincide with the Falkland Summer Festival week of events, the entertainment was provided by Falkland Primary School Choir who entertained with songs like “The Bare Necessities”, “Doe a Deer”, and “A Sailor Went to Sea” complete with all the actions. Musician Ewan Stark, who is always popular at Lomond View, played some well know Scottish, Irish and country music and John Smith sang “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess.

Lomond View provided tea, coffee and home baked cakes to all who came along to support the event. The afternoon was a great success and this is the second year that Lomond View has hosted the event.

Visitors were asked to wear a summer bonnet with a competition to choose the best hat won by Mary Craig who, along with a few other residents from our sister care home, Preston House in Glenrothes, travelled up in our minibus for the afternoon. Mary was presented with her prize which was kindly donated by Fiona Lawrenson of the Festival Committee, by one of the pupils from the primary school.

Alice Milne recently celebrated a very special birthday with her colleagues at Camilla House. Alice works in the kitchen as well as covering night shifts as a Care Assistant when required. This lady is an amazingly youthful looking 80 year old however who likes to keep herself busy and has no thoughts on hanging up her uniform anytime soon.

In fact Alice was voted Camilla House “Employee of the Year” for 2014 which show the high regard she is held in by her work mates.

Congratulations and Many Happy Returns from everyone at Kingdom Homes.

Representatives from Job Centre Plus offices throughout the area also attended along with Skills Development Scotland, Adult Basic Education and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

The event, organised by Kingdom Training, gave those attending a insight into the Workbased Academy – a six week work placement combining practical experience in one of our care homes and formal training in our dedicated training centre.
