A trip to the theatre for Residents at Stevenage care homeResidents and Colleagues from Woodlands View care home in Stevenage went to see Mathew Dickinson's production of "The Railway Children" at Manor Drive Church in Barnet.

Jean Riordan, Ann Bird, Tony Brookfield, Una Green and Cedric Denyonga all travelled by minibus singing and playing eye spy on the journey.

Residents enjoyed the show and found it exciting to watch their very own Home Administrator, Nina Last playing several different parts! 

Everyone enjoyed a packed lunch during the interval chatting to others in the audience and the Residents enjoyed the famous ending which had both ladies in floods of happy tears.

After the show the Residents and Colleagues got to meet the cast and had photographs taken. Everyone made a fuss of all the Residents which made Ann say, “I felt so important I couldn’t stop smiling!”

On the way home everyone sang along to some classic musical songs and had a little sway along to the music.
The Residents said they had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the day! Tony said, “I am glad my wife bought me a new jumper to wear especially for the day. I felt so smart!”

Deby O'Hare, Care Home Manager, commented, “The Residents had such a lovely day out at the theatre and loved meeting all the cast. They had a great time.”
