We all showed off our skills at the Shinfield View Sports Day today. The weather was perfect for a spot of egg and spoon, hula hoops, bean bag throwing, and tug-o-war which brought back fond memories of our school days! Well done to all our lovely residents who took part and to all our winners.
We hope you had a great day celebrating
We certainly weren't going to miss celebrating this very important day! Delicious fish and chips were enjoyed all round in the Bistro.
The weather wasn't on our side but we didn't let that spoil our fun as the fabulous Helen came to entertain us with some nostalgic classics
Our lovely ladies take great pride in their home and arranged these for our bistro this morning
We love our pretty garden here at Shinfield View and today we danced away the afternoon with a Zumba session!
Our resident Neil, who was a PE teacher for 40 years went head to head with our Charlotte who won gold in the 2019 Newcastle Transplant Games. It was a nail-biting match,the crowd went wild! Take a look below:
What a lovely day we spent in our delightful garden
This week is Carers week!!
The theme for this year was to show that carers are visible and valued. We are so proud of our care team here at Shinfield View, however, EVERYONE who works at Shinfield is caring and we all work together to give our residents the very best care.
Every department plays a vital role in ensuring the resident’s happiness and safety. Here’s to the Carers! And here’s to the whole Shinfield Team.
As a token of our appreciation to our incredible team, we threw a very Tasty Pizza Party in our sunny garden and in the evening sun too for the Night team- don’t worry, we are having another one Friday to ensure all of our teams are able to enjoy!

Shinfield View's colour fest was an amazing experience! We celebrated our mini Pride festival with a whole lot of love. Love is precious, love is kind, love is everything. If you are lucky enough to have love in your life then consider yourself a very rich person indeed!
