Nancy’s Trip To The Theatre

By | Craigie house News, Kingdom Homes News, News | No Comments

Nancy Donnelly, who lives at Craigie House in Crossgates, submitted a request through the Wishing Well to go to a show. On learning that The Steamie was showing at the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy Nancy chose to go there. The play is currently touring to celebrate it’s 30 year anniversary but Nancy hadn’t seen it previously. At the end of the day Nancy said she’d had a really lovely time!

 Here’s Nancy, ready for her day out, as they set off on our minibus from Craigie House.

First of all Nancy and Gemma, – Craigie’s Activities Co-ordinator, went for lunch at Home Farm View in Kirkcaldy.

Another Kingdom Homes Wishing Well request fulfilled. This time it was for Robert (Rab) Gibson who lives at Methven House Nursing Home in Kirkcaldy.

Rab has been a life long supporter of Celtic Football Club and we were delighted to arrange his request to tour Parkhead Stadium. He was accompanied by his son Barry and staff members Corrine and Heather who are also life long Celtic fans. The group were made to feel incredibly welcome by the staff at Parkhead and we can’t thank them enough for their hospitality and kindness.

As the photographs here show everyone had an amazing day and Rab would like to thank everyone involved in making his wish come true.

North School Nursery Visit

By | Methven House News, News | No Comments

The residents at Methven House Nursing Home were delighted to welcome some of the children from nearby North Primary School Nursery, back after their summer break.

 Together they made lovely bracelets from multi-coloured beads which the children were delighted to pose for the camera with.

Mrs Stowe accompanied the children on guitar singing some of the songs they have learned at the nursery much to the residents delight.

 After the singing there was just enough time for some fruit squash and biscuits before the children made their way back to school.

 The children were safely harnessed in together for their walk back to the nursery.

 

Peggy Takes To The Skies

Peggy Brookes, who lives at Roselea House in Cowdenbeath, was walking back from a trip to the shops with Margaret Stewart, the care home manager when a helicopter passed overhead. Peggy said “I wouldn’t mind a trip in a helicopter as I’ve never been in one.”

Margaret submitted a wish on Peggy’s behalf to Kingdom Homes Wishing Well initiative and we were delighted to be able to arrange this. Peggy was accompanied by her daughter, grand-daughter and great-grand-daughter as well as care staff from Roselea House.

Peggy’s trip took her over Rosyth dockyard and the bridges over the Forth giving her a excellent view of the new Queensferry Crossing bridge which will be officially opened by the Queen next week. “It was just a remark that I made never thinking it would actually happen. I was thrilled to get the chance to be able to get a close up of the new Queensferry Crossing.”
