Birthday celebrations for biker Barry at Riversway

on .

Popular Riversway Nursing Home resident Barry had a day of surprises recently to celebrate his 75th birthday.


He was given a wonderful gluten free cake by volunteers Kate and little George, as part of the Bake a Smile project. They also stayed to chat with Barry and even sing Happy Birthday.


Barry’s surprises didn’t finish there, and the Bristol Banshees – Bristol’s only all-female motorcycle club – stopped by with a surprise visit.


Barry used to race motorcycles as well as write on the subject for a magazine, and is still passionate about them. The Banshees let him hear the engines, sang Happy Birthday and spent some time chatting about engines and future events.


We’d like to thank Star, Kim and all the bikers who visited Riversway.

Easter fun at Riversway Nursing Home

on .

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol celebrated Easter with a number of activities.


Preparing Easter baskets, crafting bonnets and decorating eggs were all on the menu, with plenty of colourful creations.


Resident Marianne won an informal Easter bonnet competition, which saw the group put to good use decorations including eggs and even carrots.


Some of Riversway's residents planned to give their eggs to someone else, and others were looking forwards to eating them themselves on Easter Sunday.


They also spent time in their ‘Art with Becky’ activity having fun drawing chickens using pens, tissue paper, chalks and more as they got into the Easter spirit.


The weekend was rounded off with entertainment from Damian who visited to sing and play live music, which they followed with hot cross buns and Easter biscuits with drinks and a special raffle.


It was a lovely long weekend which was enjoyed by everyone who took part.

Bonsai trees grow on us at Springhill Care Home

on .

Accrington and District Bonsai Society came in to Springhill Care Home to show specimens of their bonsai trees and delivered an interesting presentation about how they are grown and kept.


It was a very interesting afternoon, we learned lots and hope they will come again in the future.




Warm welcome for Riversway’s new arrivals

on .

Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol welcomed a fluffy bundle of joy recently as one of the chicks they’ve been caring for finally hatched.


The first baby bird, who they’ve named Larry, was born – much to everyone’s delight – and the others are still in the incubator where anyone can come and take a look.


The eggs were supplied by an organisation called Incredible Eggs, an ethical provider of hatching kits, and once born the chicks will head to a farm in the South West.


We can’t wait to say hello to Larry’s brothers and sisters.
