Fun in the Sun

It was all fun and laughter today in the sun with our new garden games. Everyone enjoyed the competition.

Coronation Celebrations at Harestane

We started preparing for the Coronation earlier than King Charles III. We received a donation from Mr Charles McMillan, on the passing of his beloved wife which allowed us to stage the event.

We wanted to have a street party however the British weather let us down and had to change our plan to have it indoors.

Clients and families were cordially invited to the party at 2pm on the Kings Coronation day. They were asked to wear red, white or blue and the staff wore the same. The residents loved watching the Coronation of the King with many of them remembering Queen Elizabeth’s coronation and some of them even remembering her Fathers coronation.


In the afternoon their was an entertainer on each floor. The clients participated in face painting and all the ladies wore a crown and all the men looked dashing in their Red White and Blue bowler hats!

Gail Rice had baked tirelessly and turned out a magnificent spread on the day and came with a few surprises e.g. a London Bus full of scones and the Kings Jubilee carriage full of cupcakes. The staff made the home look fit for a King with the amount of decorations.

A “ “Royal” time was had by all !!!

80th at Magdalen House

Morris Milne turns 80 this week, and he wanted to celebrate with a magician, with his favourite football club Celtic colours tied in, everyone had lots of fun and laughter with Magic Paul, it was a fist time having a magician in Magdalen, but I am sure it will not be the last time we see Magic Paul.
