Take a look at our superb Halloween display in the Main Hall; this has been created by our Activity Coordinator. All the children from Sibbertoft Village will be coming to the Manor on Thursday the 31st October for ‘Trick or Treat’. I’m sure that they will be truly  ‘scared’…..

Children have now returned to school after the Summer holidays so Fee has resumed her volunteer work; reading with the children
from Welford School. If anyone else would like to help with this weekly activity please let us know, they would be very welcome.
The children benefit hugely from individuals taking the time to listen to them and encouraging their reading skills. We will take the minibus weekly so please let us know if you are interested in attending.

Some of our residents have recently expressed a wish for ‘guest’ speakers to come to the home to provide talks of interest. We have sent out several invitations to local establishments, businesses and charities and are waiting for responses. We hope that a programme of talks will commence in late October. Details of all talks will be circulated as soon as they are confirmed.

Please remember the minibus is available to take you on outings. If anyone would like to visit Market Harborough, go for coffee or visit local attractions please let a member of activity staff know and they will be happy to arrange this for you.

The next meeting arranged for Relatives/Representatives will be held on October 17th 2019 at 11.00 am. These quarterly meetings provide a forum for people to discuss general matters regarding Sibbertoft Manor and allow management the opportunity to provide information on developments within the home and changes in Legislation. Everyone is very welcome. Minutes of the meeting are circulated to all residents’ relatives and representatives.

We have just started our Flu Vaccination campaign. All Staff are encouraged to have the Flu Jab each year to minimise the risk of residents contracting Flu. Our Staff uptake has, in the past, been significant, and we envisage that this years response will also be good. Flu Vaccinations for residents will also commence in October.

We will be hosting a coffee morning in aid of the MacMillan Cancer Charity in November. We will be holding a ‘bake-off’ competition with cakes donated by staff.

Judging will be done by residents and visitors to the home during the coffee morning. There will also be a raffle for the Charity. Please encourage your friends and relatives to attend this event and support a great Charity.
