June Events at Ryefield Court
This coming month, we have all sorts planned here at Ryefield Court, and we really hope you can come along and join in the fun.

We’re kicking things off with a celebration of the 75th D-Day Anniversary, and we’re doing so with a 1940s show! Cheryl King is a top vocal entertainer and loves getting out amongst the audience, interacting and creating a wonderful atmosphere, taking you right back in time! Dressed up in full army uniform, Cheryl will perform music from Vera Lynn, the Andrews Sisters and a whole host of other great hits from the 1940s. This will be a great night of entertainment, so be sure to come on down, sing along and reminisce with Cheryl.

On 13th June in the middle of Carers Week, we’re hosting a charity auction night and BBQ in aid of young carers. Carers Week aims to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face, recognise the contribution they make to society and offer access to much-needed support. We’re contributing by raising money to send Hillingdon Young Carers to Wembley – and we need your help! Come along to our charity auction night to bid on all sorts of fantastic high-value prizes, including a three-course Fine Dining experience for up to eight people here in our private dining room at Ryefield Court! We really hope to see you at what’s sure to be a fantastic event for an incredibly worthwhile cause.

The next week, we’re welcoming back Nik Stoter, who will be performing favourites from the ’50s and ’70s for us, featuring huge hits from stars including Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole – are you ready to sing and dance along? We certainly hope so!

We’re rounding off the month with Elkie’s jazz and swing show! Elkie is a lively and engaging performer, a seasoned pro with years of experience, and her professional highlights include singing for famous clients such as Richard Branson, Chris Evans, Jamie Oliver and the King of Sweden! This fab show includes some of the great classic hits including Hit the Road Jack, The Candy Man, Sway, Lady is a Tramp, Route 66 and many more. Come along and join in the fun – this is most certainly a show you won’t want to miss.

If you would like to come and join us at Ryefield Court this June for our brilliant evening entertainment, please pop us an email to reception@ryefieldcourt.com or call us on 01895 707106 to let us know you’re coming along. As always, everything is completely free of charge, including refreshments!

A warm welcome to Clare!
We’re delighted to say that back in March, Clare Livingstone joined the Ryefield Court team as home manager – we’d like to extend an incredibly warm welcome to Clare and can’t wait to see how the home evolves and develops for the benefit of both residents and staff under her leadership.

Our wonderful home here in Hillingdon is lucky to have her and we’re sure the future’s very bright. We’re already noticing differences for the better and hope that you are too, and we’re always open to feedback and suggestions, so please don’t be afraid to pass your comments on to Clare or another team member.

Back in 2008, Clare began her career in this industry as a carer and over the course of the following eight years, she worked her way up to become a home manager, gaining levels 2, 3 and 5 in Health and Social Care along the way, as well as completing a year-long course in Management. Fast forward a few years and here we are today.

It’s always an interesting time when a new manager comes into a home, and we’re seeing it as a great opportunity to improve in any way we can.

A few words from Clare: “I’m so pleased to be part of the team here at Ryefield Court – it’s a fantastic opportunity and my aim is to have happy residents, family members and staff. Come and say hello next time you pop in!”

Our second event of the month will take place here in our home on Thursday 25th April, when Nick Caruso will be here to pay a Tribute to the Legends! This show incorporates all sorts of renowned artists' songs from the 1950s to present day, so there will be plenty of opportunities to sing along or get your groove on.

We can't wait - will you be joining us? Please RSVP to let us know you're coming by either emailing reception@ryefieldcourt.com or by calling 01895 707 106. As always, everything is completely free of charge!
St. Patrick's Day Celebrations
Here at Ryefield Court, we love a good party! And what better occasion to celebrate than St. Patrick’s Day? We celebrated in style, with the ‘Irish Special’ providing high-quality entertainment, and we also made cakes, served green beer and we also had plenty of Guinness. It was a great day enjoyed by everyone!

Ready, Steady, GLOW Memory Walk
On Friday 1st March, some members of the Ryefield Court team took part in the Ready, Steady, GLOW walk in London in aid of Alzheimer’s Society. This walk after dark started at Paternoster Square, near St. Paul’s Cathedral, and gave the team the chance to raise money for those living with dementia with every step. This 4.5km route took them along the Thames and across iconic bridges, with great views of the Shard, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral, of course. As it was a memory walk, there was also the chance to write little messages and add them to the Memory Tree at the end.

March Events at Ryefield Court
We would love to see you at Ryefield Court this month, and we have two fantastic events lined up to make March extra-special. We hope you can make it in to see one or both of our great acts!

Without further ado, here’s what we have in store this March…

On Thursday 14th, we’re delighted to be welcoming Georgi Barratt back into our midst for a Singalong Cabaret Show! Georgi will be singing all sorts of well-known songs for us, including hits from ABBA, the Carpenters and more! Prepare yourselves for a trip down memory lane.

Our second event this month will take place on Thursday 28th, when we’ll be playing host to John Sessions – John is a very talented man and has the power to bring Frank Sinatra to life with his fantastic tribute act. This special performance is sure to make for an entertaining night.

You are more than welcome to come along to both of our events this month, complete with delicious food and drinks, all free of charge as usual – all we ask is for you to RSVP to let us know you’re coming. Please either email reception@ryefieldcourt.com or call 01895 707106. We hope to hear from you soon!

Cooking with the Chefs
Back on 22nd February, the Ryefield Court residents had the opportunity to cook with some professional chefs! Together, they created some delicious chocolate truffles topped with coconut, cocoa powder and ground almonds. They were so tasty, they didn’t last very long! They also beautifully decorated an impressive three-tier cake with jam, cream and fruits. This activity will no doubt take place again, as it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who took part.
