Briardene Newsletter: June Edition

It’s been a very busy few months here at Briardene but we’re delighted to bring back our monthly newsletter to keep you updated on what’s been happening and a sneak peak of upcoming plans.

First things first, we would like to formally introduce our wonderful new Home Manager, Julie Booth – who joined us in March and has already made a big impact on the home! You can find out more about Julie from her recent ice-breaker questionnaire here. 

Continuing with the announcements, we’re also incredibly proud to share that we recently were awarded a “GOOD” rating in all five categories by CQC! We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our wonderful team who continue to go above and beyond everyday to ensure our residents live their best possible lives with us – you couldn’t deserve this more!

Platinum Jubilee Garden Party

What glorious weather we had last weekend for our Jubilee garden party in Briardene. A big thank you to Johnny Cox, a fabulous singer who entertained us with some classics – oh we enjoyed singing along! Thank you to everyone who helped make the day a success – and to all the family and friends who joined us for the celebrations.

Briardene ❤'s the 80's

In June we had a FABULOUS 1980’s themed day – which was a hit with everyone! Our team and residents dressed up, participated in quiz’s, competitions and of course – sang and danced along to popular 1980’s songs; sang by a fantastic singer called Eric Clark. It was a fantastic day for everyone – and we can’t wait for the next one!
