Staff here at Buckingham in full swing in preparation for the Tour De Yorkshire and residents have material ragged the wheels of the bike donated in the this years colours. We have also been entered into a competition for the best dressed home, fingers crossed.
A crow was found by Joanne the Administrator at Buckingham wondering around the car park. His mum had abandoned him and he was lost and confused he latched onto Joe and followed her everywhere, eventually a decision had to be made to ensure no harm came to the baby crow, such as getting knocked over by cars in and out of the car park. So Joanne adopted him and called him snowy. She took him home and fed him up and released him in her big garden. He still comes back to see her now and again.
Following a break of several months, the Penistown Memory Lane Cafe, operated by the dementia section of Barnsley Alzheimer's Society, recently met at a new venue
The club for dementia sufferers and carers was relaunched at Buckingham Care Home with afternoon tea. It previously met at St John's Community Centre.
Care home manager, Susan Thickett welcomed the group, which will now meet on a third Tuesday of each month. Dementia support manager Kathryn Rawling said "We want anyone caring for someone with dementia to bring them along for tea, company and conversation."
The Buckingham home, named to mark the Queen's Jubilee year by pupils at St Johns Primary School recently opened creating 70 new jobs.
The purpose built home is located on the former Green Park council home which closed in October 1977. It was opened by local Penistone Councillor, Andrew Millner who has been campaigning for a care home for the past five years. Andrew said "This is a fantastic, much needed facility which will be welcomed by the people of Penistone."
In addition to choosing the home's name, the pupils from St John's were treated to a guided tour of the home. Teacher Lesley sullivan said "We hope this is the start of a good community partnership where we will be able to visit and perhaps learn some gardening tips from the residents."
Buckingham will be celebrating it's 1st Birthday on 12th July 2013 with a Tea Party & Disco. Please visit our events page to keep up to date with other up and coming events in our homes.
