This month, we would like to introduce you all to our new Budgie who we have named Dave! He has joined us at Llanyravon Court for our residents to enjoy and they fell in love with him from the outset! He was very quiet for the first few days while he got used to his new surroundings, but he has settled in brilliantly and is now a very lively little character indeed! The residents love sitting next to him and talking to him, listening to him tweet back and watching him show off in front of his mirror. It’s brought back lots of fond memories of the animal and pets the residents used to have. A good few owned budgies themselves and we’ve had some laughs about the words some of the birds picked up on and kept on repeating!

The children that visit us weekly are also very fond of Dave who never fails to show them his acrobatic skills. Hopefully soon we will be able to start holding Dave once he gets confident enough to rest on our hands. That will be exciting for everyone and we are looking forward to it!

We also celebrated Valentine’s Day with the residents, setting up the tables in the dining room for a romantic set meal and giving all residents a rose each. We then enjoyed some entertainment from Rob Knight who has been coming to Llanyravon Court for many years and is always enjoyed.

A bingo night was also held towards the end of the month where families and friends were invited in for a fun game of Bingo and a quiz. We had families and friends join us and we enjoyed two games of bingo and a fun quiz to finish the evening off. Lots of laughs were had and we have now agreed after many requests, that this will hopefully become a more regular evening.
