Mrs Bridgeman receives her meals at home.  She is an amazing lady who struggles with mobility so has literally everything she needs immediatly within her reach.  If not her reach, then that of her faithful friend Joy who sits on her shoulder.

Each Wednesday afternoon Knit & Knatter takes place, not a huge amount of knitting but certainly some talking.  This was a great session to get to know some of the visitors, one whom knits hats for fisherman each month.

Kirsty & Sue are almost full time volunteers at Fairclose and help wherever is needed, but one of their favourite times of day is tea time after lunch.  Biscuits, cakes and a nice brew!
