Residents and staff at Fountains care home celebrated Greek Independence Day with a feast and an island tour.  

Staff at the home in Shirley, Warwickshire hosted a day of Greek-inspired fun which started with a tour of the Greek island of Santorini. Residents were wowed by the beautiful buildings and the glorious sunsets making everyone dream about holidays past and in the future.

Residents made gold leaf Greek crowns – traditionally worn to Toga parties. Everyone enjoyed putting the leafs on their headbands and adding all the finer details too. It certainly took a steady hand!  

For lunch the dining area was transformed into a Greek Taverna with classic Greek music, wine, and a themed menu created by the kitchen team: Zucchini and feta fritters to start, followed by a Greek salad with Tzatziki and roasted vegetables.

Dessert was Revani which is a Greek semolina cake.

After lunch, some traditional Greek dancing was enjoyed in the cinema room there was a lot of clapping and dancing along to the music.

Of course no Greek day would be truly complete without a movie evening of Mamma Mia and lots of ABBA.
