Streatfeild House has hosted another fun filled Summer fair.
Another successful summer fair at Streatfeild House! On the 9th of August, 2019 the staff and residents of Streatfeild House ( a residential home for people with learning disabilities or dementia) hosted another fun filled Summer fair. Designed to encourage its’ residents and their families to participate and enjoy some quality time together, the event proved to be exceptionally good fun for everyone involved.
Despite a gloomy start to the day, the weather brightened up and helped deliver a cheerful celebration. There was great food, drink, games and company with all generations represented. Decorations were fantastically created by Balloon Boutique of London who supplied unique tropical/summer themed décor that made visitors feel as if they had been transported on holiday. Residents stated that the decoration “really made this the best summer fair ever.”
Our chief guest Mayor Nigel Sinden, the honourable Mayor of Hastings took the time to attend the fair and meet all of the residents and staff. He also handed out medals and certificates to each resident, congratulating them for the part that they had played in putting the event together and for their successes over the past year. They were all extremely grateful for the time that he spent with them and continue to wear their medals almost a week after the event. Mayor Sinden only had lovely things to say about Streatfeild House and said he would be elated to return again .
Streatfeild House was recently purchased by the London based company LWT Health Care, and this event was a great opportunity for families to see all the positive changes that had been made by them. With a brand new interactive projector, mobile video conferencing and new display screens, LWT is really making their mark in St Leonard’s on Sea. When asked why this London based company ventured outside of London to purchase a care home, Mr Thomas (managing director of Streatfeild House) stated it was because of the wonderfully dedicated staff. Mr Thomas said, “The effort and generosity the staff put into hosting this event was a prime example of their dedication to the residents’ happiness! We couldn’t be happier with our team especially our managerial staff: Emma & Charli Benfield!”
Streatfeild House’s next celebration will be near Christmas, so watch this space and don’t miss out.
