Firstly, we would like to thank everybody who attended our first family fete before the Covid-19 pandemic began.
We were overwhelmed by the number of you who joined us to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee and the generosity of each and every one of you who donated to our resident’s fund.
Our residents, your loved ones, have asked us to organise a day at the seaside, which the money raised will go towards.

We kickstarted the day with an amazing performance by one of Oakwood’s favourite entertainers, Andrea, who got everyone involved by taking requests and encouraging a sing-along.
The day was filled with a variety of activities including; face painting, giant jenga, penalty shootout, hook a duck and a teddy tombola.
We wrapped up the afternoon by holding our raffle, with many taking home prizes which were all kindly donated by family, friends, and staff.

Again, thank you for being part of this event, we look forward to welcoming you all to our next one!

Today we say goodbye to our chef Nathan who has been a part of Oakwood House for 7 years!
Residents have enjoyed Nathan’s delicious food over the years and we will all miss him greatly.
Nathan is relocating to Canada and we’re sure he will pop in to see us whenever he is back in Norwich.

From everyone at Oakwood House, we wish him all the best for the future.
