From all of us at Apple House care homes, to all of you, we hope your Easter weekend has been peaceful and joyous. When the world about us seems fraught, with tragic news, and peace seems a distant hope, it is the small things we do together with those closest to us that remind us of the true meaning of hope and peace.
Simple things like baking bring us together. With this in mind, our teams have worked hard to create little masterpieces of Springtime joy.
Yes, the Great Apple House Bake Off is today!
This afternoon the Easter Bunny (aka our MD, Jane, but don’t tell anyone) will be amongst a panel of residents who will have the near impossible task of selecting a winning cake (and tasting it of course). The winning cake will earn its team a sparkly night out as well as a mega cheque for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation as a thank you from us to them for all that they do in our community to ease the trials of cancer-suffering families.
The Apple House Easter party will kick off at Redcroft and is sure to be eggxactly what we all need to round off the Easter celebration today.
Finally, I went to the shop this morning and bought twelve Slinkies in their spring sale! (yes, terrible joke, groan!) 😉
