A Poppy Wreath to mark Remembrance Day

Residents at Steepleton Manor have created a special poppy wreath to mark Remembrance Day on Sunday 11th November.

Remembrance Day has been observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

The day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War 1 on that date in 1918.

Fast flying bird at Sherborne House

Residents at Sherborne House were treated to a special visit from a bird of prey back in September when Sharandys Birds of Prey visited with a friendly kestrel. Staff and residents enjoyed petting and stroking the bird.

Kestrels are able to fly at high speeds and change direction rapidly. They have exceptional powers of vision and have been recorded diving at speeds of 200 miles per hour.

This was a fantastic experience for the residents to get involved with and has provided them with fond memories.
