Residents and staff at Townfield & Coach House enjoyed a special Chinese New Year Theme Day to celebrate the year of the monkey by discussing which “animal” they were under the Chinese calendar, and trying their luck at the chop stick challenge.
Mathew Deary the chef at the care home prepared a themed Chinese meal with spring rolls and chicken skewers to start, for the main course a choice between Chicken Sweet and Sour or Beef in black bean sauce with rice served with stir fried vegetables and then pineapple or banana fritters served with ice cream.
Maria Payne, Activities co-ordinator at Townfield & Coach House said ” Its fantastic to be able to celebrate the events throughout the year. We always try to put decorations up throughout the home and theme our activities around that event. It really is a busy time of year with Burns night just gone and now Chinese new Year and tomorrow we will be making pancakes for Shrove Tuesday and then into our Easter celebrations.”
