The sun shone on Sunday, briefly and the residents enjoyed a freshly fried fish and chip dinner as a local fish and chip van took position in the car park. We were able to get the residents to the van to place their orders, and even had money to pay for their meal. Pre decimal coins changed hands as someone ordered threepence of fish and twopence of chips. Do you want that with mushy peas? Thats an extra halfpenny. Quick as a flash the resident turned to John and whipped an extra halfpenny from his hand! Thank you to the Lincolnshire Fryer for setting up for us- to be able to eat really fresh hot fish and chips and savour the aroma is a real pleasure. Today was possible thanks to the kind donations from the families of both Ken Forster and Vina Ivett. Vina would have loved the pudding – meringue, strawberries and cream!
We followed the lunch up with bingo which everyone joined in, visitors included. Effie, Nan and Jessie won prizes.
