Residents from Borough Care’s Meadway Court in Bramhall recently visited the Wonderland Festival at St Michael and All Angels Church. A multi-sensory interactive walk-through experience, based upon Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the Wonderland Festival was a magical morning out for residents.
Meadway Court has excellent links with the local community and residents and staff regularly attend events at St Michael and All Angels Church. Amanda Millett, Activity Lifestyle Facilitator at Meadway Court, says: “We had a fabulous morning at the Wonderland Festival. We were all so impressed with the organisation and effort the volunteers put into this event to make it such a fascinating experience.”
Meadway Court resident Pam Autherson has attended a number of events at the Church and was keen to visit the Wonderland Festival. Pam says: “It was lovely to see so many people of all ages enjoying the Wonderland experience. My favourite character was the White Rabbit.”
Phyllis Price is staying temporarily at Meadway Court on an active recovery programme. A very lively 94 year old, Phyllis is always keen to join in the wide range of activities put on by the home. Phyllis attends church regularly and was keen to see what the Wonderland Festival was all about. Commenting on her visit, Phyllis says: “I never imagined that exploring Wonderland would be such an adventure. It was magical going from one area to the next discovering the Alice in Wonderland story.”
