Margaret Allsop, Home Manager, explained: “Everyone enjoyed the seaside themed day. We had fish, chips and ice cream.

A relative who enjoyed the seaside themed day at The Sycamore and Poplars Care Home in Mansfield sent a card thanking the team for a lovely day.
Mrs Knights wrote: “Just want to say thanks to you and all staff for organising the Seaside afternoon.
“I thought it was very good. I enjoyed the traditional Punch and Judy, unfortunately my mum slept through most of it, but she enjoyed the singing and we got her swinging in her seat, the clown was a good singer and his balloon models were brill. It was also nice to see the interaction with the staff and residents all having a good time.
“Mum certainly enjoyed the ice-cream with raspberry sauce.
It was a shame my daughter and grandson couldn’t make it as they would have enjoyed it all too.”
