On 29 September, residents and colleagues at our Tŷ Heulog Extra Care scheme in Talbot Green pulled out all the stops to celebrate five fantastic years since opening in 2016.
The event was bursting with community-spirit, bringing people together for a day of fun and celebrations, something which has been missed over the past 18 months. Service users from our Gathering Place day centre service also came along for the special occasion.
Receptionist and activities coordinator, Laura Roberts, led the party planning with support from colleagues and the Radis team who provide community care at Tŷ Heulog, making sure the whole day had lots for residents, colleagues and the community to enjoy.
Tŷ Heulog was transformed into a party paradise with bunting, balloons and decorations galore! Guests enjoyed browsing a range of market stalls including arts and crafts, beauty and a sweet cart ran by two volunteer pupils from Y Pant Comprehensive School.
Our cooks whipped up a feast of tasty delights served throughout the day; starting with bacon baguettes and celebratory drinks on arrival, a chip shop themed lunch served in traditional takeaway boxes, and finally a light buffet to end the day.
Two of our domestic colleagues also ran a delicious homemade cake table where all proceeds were donated to the Rhian Griffiths Forget me not Fund. And to round-off the afternoon, local singer and entertainer, Bev Davies, joined us for lots of singing and dancing.
Laura said: “At Tŷ Heulog we are very fortunate to have such devoted colleagues and to work closely with the Radis team, ensuring our residents receive the care, support and entertainment they all deserve. We are also incredibly thankful for our generous local community for all their support and donations.”
