November 2021: Seasonal Sweet Treats at Derwent


Derwent Newsletter: November Edition

What a busy November we have had here at Derwent! Thankfully the wintery weather has somewhat held off, as we started the month with a sunshine-filled trip to our local cenotaph to pay our respects for Remembrance Day, we then celebrated #NationalCandyDay with lots of tasty sweet treats and now we’re preparing the home for the festive period whilst keeping cosy inside!

We are also continuing to revamp our bedrooms and lounges and have even introduced a new sensory wall onto our middle floor which will continuingly be added to – we can’t wait for you to see it and know you’ll love it as much as we do!

We are still welcoming families back to Derwent and are continuing to follow all the latest government guidelines. Take care and we hope to see you soon!

Lest We Forget : Remembrance Day 2021

On Remembrance Day, our residents took a trip to our local cenotaph to pay our respects and take part in the two minutes silence – it was a beautiful day and our residents really enjoyed being able to join in the commemoration.
