As Oaklands House Nursing Home is in the middle of the countryside, amongst many wild animals and nearby fields of horses, it was discussed, and agreed that it was inappropriate to have outdoor fireworks in our surroundings. However, Oaklands residents joined in the fun of 5th November with a historical look back at Guy Fawkes’ failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605. We tested ourselves with a quiz, using the knowledge from the history lesson and joining forces to come up with the correct answers, amid a huge amount of humorous conversation and laughter.
Some residents chose to create their painted version of fireworks, showcasing the bright colours against black backgrounds.
Everyone had a crackling time!
