As the tumbleweed blew across the front of Valley View Care Home in Cefn Hengoed, the care team and residents were getting ready to pull their pistols at dawn as they embraced their western day.
Rebecca Kenchington, Home Manager, explained: “I think Monday 12th September will be a day that sticks in all of our residents’ minds. Everyone went full out and embraced the western theme, dressing the communal rooms and kitting themselves out in their best cowboy garb.
“To make the day extra special, we invited a local country and western singer in to entertain the residents as they ate their BBQ lunch. It certainly felt like a scene out of a cowboy and Indian film.”
