Lunch out for Birch Green group

A group of residents and staff from Birch Green Care Home headed to the local Toby Carvery recently for lunch.


The monthly Helping Hands lunch is a great opportunity for people to gather for a meal and chat.


Shopping trippers

A group from Birch Green enjoyed a lovely day out at Oswaldtwistle Mills near Accrington recently.



The group enjoyed looking round all the outlets and reading up on the local history.



They especially enjoyed stopping for a fish and chip dinner afterwards!


We like your choice of pumps Edna.

Goodbye to Jean

Long-serving and popular member of staff Jean Ali bid us farewell recently when she retired after 16 years with Birch Green Care Home.


A much-loved nurse, Jean is very popular with residents, their friends and families, and of course among her fellow staff.


She will be missed by us all but we hope she enjoys her retirement – starting with a long-anticipated holiday and road trip!



Smiles all round at Birch Green’s summer fair

Skelmersdale care home Birch Green threw open its doors recently for its annual summer fair.


The colourful event featured a range of activities for residents, friends and family members, and the local community.


Among the activities on offer were a raffle, stalls, a range of exotic food, face painting and a professional singer, Sophie Bennett, who entertained the crowds.


A group of young local dancers joined Birch Green to show off their skills, and a barbecue was enjoyed by all.


Phillippa McGrath, General Manager at Birch Green, said: “We’re proud of our links with the local community, and our summer fair is a great opportunity to meet people and get to know them.


“It’s always a popular event, and everyone pulls out all the stops to make sure there is plenty of entertainment for all.”

Dancing for joy at Birch Green

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house recently following a visit by North West charitable organisation DanceSyndrome.


DanceSyndrome was founded to provide community dance workshops to allow people of all abilities to train and express themselves.


The group holds performances across the region and recently visited Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale.


During the visit, residents watched performances and were encouraged to take part in armchair exercises themselves.


When the group carried out a performance piece to the famous song Hallelujah, we were all swept away by the emotion in the dancing and music.


We hope that Dance Syndrome will now be able to visit with us once a month, and we can’t wait to see them again.
