Friends reunited at royal-themed event

Residents, pupils and staff from a Withernsea residential home travelled to Lincolnshire for a Coronation-themed get-together.

On Thursday, May 4, people from all of the homes run by Cascade met up at Sleaford Cricket Club to rekindle friendships that have blossomed since the pandemic.

They enjoyed a variety of activities such as a photo booth with royal-themed props, a treasure hunt, crown decorating, collage making, outside boules, cornhole and the conga, and everyone enjoyed a picnic lunch.

Josh, from one of the adult homes, said: “It’s nice to see everybody,” and when Eddie was crowned king for the day, Tracey asked, “Can we do it again?”

The event was organised by Carol Ryan, director of adult education and one of Cascade’s proprietors. Cascade has one residential and supported living adult facility in Withernsea – Stiles/Wilson house in Queen Street – and four adult residential homes in Norwich.

Friendship meetings are a great opportunity for the residents, staff and pupils to meet and interact together as other families do. Cascade’s next friendship meeting is set to take place in August this year.
