Art with Rowland

A recent activity saw Riversway’s residents putting their artistic skills to the test.

 

A group gathered to paint some lovely pictures, taking inspiration from artists and from photographs.

 

After studying pictures of scenes including sun sets and rabbits, the team got to work with their own watercolours and created some inspirational pieces of art.

Down by the river

A recent visit saw residents from Riversway Nursing Home enjoy a trip to Conham River Park.

 

Known as one of the most scenic walks in Bristol, we spent time meeting people from the community and taking in the sights along the riverside.

 

We even collected souvenirs of our trip to add to our ‘adventure stick’ we made previously, and picked garlic leaves before heading back to the camp fire to make some garlic pesto.

 

The pesto was very tasty and was sampled on oat cakes with a hot drink. It was a lovely morning with great weather and great company.


 

Fun in the garden

We had a fun morning recently working in the garden here at Riversway.

 

Young volunteer Millie, who is only 12, stopped by to help with some activities and we all helped each other pot our new flowers and crops ready for summer.

 

We planted vegetables including peppers, tomatoes and carrots as well as lots of pretty flowers, and we can’t wait to watch as they grow.


 

Birthday celebrations for biker Barry

Popular Riversway resident Barry had a day of surprises recently to celebrate his 75th birthday.

 

He was given a wonderful gluten free cake by volunteers Kate and little George, as part of the Bake a Smile project. They also stayed to chat with Barry and even sing Happy Birthday.

 

Barry’s surprises didn’t finish there, and the Bristol Banshees – Bristol’s only all-female motorcycle club – stopped by with a surprise visit.

 

Barry used to race motorcycles as well as write on the subject for a magazine, and is still passionate about them. The Banshees let him hear the engines, sang Happy Birthday and spent some time chatting about engines and future events.

 


We’d like to thank Star, Kim and all the bikers who visited Riversway.

Easter fun at Riversway

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol celebrated Easter with a number of activities.

 

Preparing Easter baskets, crafting bonnets and decorating eggs were all on the menu, with plenty of colourful creations.

 

Resident Marianne won an informal Easter bonnet competition, which saw the group put to good use decorations including eggs and even carrots.

 

Some of our residents planned to give their eggs to someone else, and others were looking forwards to eating them themselves on Easter Sunday.

 

We also spent time in our ‘Art with Becky’ activity having fun drawing chickens using pens, tissue paper, chalks and more as we got into the Easter spirit.

 

The weekend was rounded off with entertainment from Damian who visited to sing and play live music, which we followed with hot cross buns and Easter biscuits with drinks and a special raffle.

 

It was a lovely long weekend which was enjoyed by everyone who took part.
