Special party for June!

On Friday 9 June, residents and staff joined together for a special party for June. This included guest singer Keri Hoffman, wonderful food from the kitchen and a tasty barbecue cooked by Mr Lutton. This party was for June Bakewell who has been the manager at The Forbury for many years.  Her gentleness, compassion, good humour, and especially the way she worked with the staff for all the residents to make The Forbury a home with big heart. We all had a great day and wish June well on her retirement and for the future.
