Last Friday, we held a very special event at a resident’s request – we had been asked to hold a French-themed party in the Bistro! As it was so close to Bastille Day, which was on Saturday, we decided to turn the two events into one big Bastille Day Party, and what a great day it was.

To entertain everybody and to set the mood, we had an accordion player here at Shinfield View, who provided us with the beautiful sounds of our neighbouring country, and the kitchen staff very kindly put on an amazing spread of cheese, crackers, sandwiches, crisps, salad and delicious desserts for everyone to enjoy, offering a real taste of France.
