The Queen’s Birthday

On Saturday 8th June Debbie celebrated the Queen’s official birthday with our residents.

A life size cut out of the Queen visited us and we sampled lots of yummy cakes whilst listening to a variety of music.

Our lounge was decorated with red, white and blue bunting and pretty flower pots to get us in the party mood.

Everyone said that they'd had a lovely time celebrating the Queen’s official Birthday.

Riversway heads to ‘space’

Riversway residents got to experience their own trip to ‘space’ recently with a themed activity.


The space evening featured sounds and music, along with colourful lights, and a range of games – plus space food including a vanilla ice cream sandwich.


Everyone had so much fun taking part and they really enjoyed the evening get together.

Dancing for therapy with Lottie

Riverway residents got their dancing shoes on for a visit by Lottie.


Lottie is a dance therapist, and her activities are always popular.


This time was no different, and we spent a morning singing and dancing and benefiting from the exercise.





Cheese rolling at Riversway

Inspired by the Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling event, Riversway hosted its own celebration recently.


Each year the Spring bank holiday sees wheels of cheese rolled down a steep hill at the village of Cooper’s Hill near Gloucester.


So Riversway residents and staff gathered to roll their own, complete with names given to them for the occasion.


The winner of our event was named Milly the Moo, owned by Monica, who won a big bar of chocolate. Afterwards we toasted with different cheeses and drinks including berry cider and grapes, and took part in a singalong.


People who didn’t make it to the rolling competition, still received a tasty cracker given by Rita complete with cheese topping.



Everyone had a great time taking part.






Sensory fun at Riversway

Everyone had lots of fun taking part in a special sensory session recently at Riversway Nursing Home.


We spent time smelling aftershaves and soaps and looking at all the different objects, tasting sweets and even listening to the sound of the sea, everyone loved all the bubbles!


We even had a surprise visit from Charley, a beautiful sausage dog whom we all adore.
