The six month long virtual cruise has been a big hit with our residents here at Woodstock Residential Care Home.
Around the World with Nellsar Cruises saw us ‘stop’ in Hong Kong, India, Spain, Italy France and the Caribbean. Our ‘return’ to England on Wednesday 11 August marked the culmination of the virtual travel adventure and we disembarked in style!
Getting creative as we cruise
On Tuesday 10 August we got very creative and made red, white and blue fascinators to wear as the Nellsar cruise ship returned to England. We used paper plates, tissue paper, sequins and union jacks to create our fabulous hats.
We all had a lovely chat and listened to old wartime music while we made the hats. Our residents enjoyed the activity as it got our creative juices flowing; making these hats just in time for the last stop of our cruise got us all excited to celebrate in style.
On Wednesday 11 August everyone at Woodstock celebrated Nellsar’s arrival back to England on the cruise and we all took part in a patriotic photoshoot.
We had a whole day of celebrations in the garden to mark the end of this fantastic cruise! We’re so happy to be back home to England but will miss exploring different countries each month.
There were smiles all around as we celebrated the day with lots of Union Jacks and England flags, a “welcome home” banner and a back drop including the iconic Big Ben, decorating the Home and garden.
With a street party themed lunch in the garden, our residents dined on classic English fish and chips served in paper; we even had a visit from the ice cream man, delicious! We also had yummy cupcakes made by our Cook which we had with a lovely cup of tea in the afternoon.
We danced and sang the day away to singer Bruce Winters; it was such a fun day celebrating English traditions. Around the World with Nellsar Cruises has been a blast and we all had so much fun with the activities that came from it.
What a fantastic journey it has been!
