Spreading Love in Newport: A Valentine’s Day Initiative

Hello, Isle of Wight! I’m Leah Wherry, the Activities Lead at Solent Grange Nursing Home along Stapler’s Road. Today, I am thrilled to share an exciting initiative we’ve planned for this Valentine’s Day to spread love and joy in our community.

It came to my attention that the charming tradition of town criers has faded away on the Isle of Wight. This realization sparked an idea – an idea that revolves around bringing back the spirit of community and sharing happiness, especially on a day dedicated to love.

Our team at Solent Grange has decided to embark on a heartwarming mission this Valentine’s Day. We’re purchasing vibrant red roses and attaching a note that encourages people to “snap & share this moment of joy.” Along with the roses, we’re including personalised sweets to sweeten the experience.

On Valentine’s Day, a few residents, myself, and the other lovely lady from my activities team will be heading into Newport town. Our mission is simple yet powerful – to hand out these delightful moments of joy to passersby and spread love in our community.

We invite everyone who receives a rose and sweet treat to take pictures of their special gifts. In the spirit of modern times, we know our residents love a good selfie, so we encourage people to capture these moments and share them on social media.

By sharing these heartwarming moments online, we aim to create a virtual community where the love and joy we spread on the streets of Newport can be experienced by an even wider audience. Whether it’s through Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, we want to see our roses and sweets reaching every corner of the Isle of Wight.

We believe that love is meant to be shared, and this Valentine’s Day, we invite the entire community to join us in spreading joy. If you happen to receive one of our roses, don’t forget to snap a picture, use our hashtag #SolentGrangeNursingHome, and share your moment of happiness with the world.

As we embrace the spirit of Valentine’s Day, let’s come together to make this initiative a resounding success. The Isle of Wight deserves a day filled with love, kindness, and shared moments of joy. Solent Grange Nursing Home is excited to be a part of this endeavour, and we look forward to seeing the beautiful memories created on this special day. Happy Valentine’s Day, Isle of Wight!
