Newsletter August 2020

August has been a mixed bag on the weather front. Families have continued to meet together in our garden, sheltered in the protected area nearer the Crofthead main building. Our gazebo is lasting well.

As we approach harvest, the commencement of the SPL and schools returning, Activities have been continuing contacts with the wider community.

The football season ticket for Hamden tours has been renewed for 20/21, the local faith leaders have sent in virtual services including discussions on harvest and the pupil support workers at our local schools have wished everyone well. West Lothian Council at Museum services, are now in a position to provide us with an array of memorabilia for our residents to enjoy.

The local high schools who visited us earlier in the year, have updated our residents with news of University placements in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our residents have sent letters to wish senior pupils well with their continued studies.

Our hair salon is fully open and our nail bar continues to tour our lounges. Saturday night snacks and drinks are accompanied by well loved movies!

Our residents, families and staff, look forward to the beginning of September with the promise of fallen leaves, cosy nights in, warm broths and berries on the trees. Our gardener has been working hard throughout summer and we look forward to welcoming Autumn to the Crofthead Garden.
