Home staff enjoy pancake races

Home staff enjoy pancake races

STAFF at the Thamesfield Retirement Village nursing home in Henley took part in a pancake race on Shrove Tuesday.

Residents from the home off Wargrave Road watched as they raced around the lawn beside the River Thames under the eye of a referee who ensured they tossed their pancakes as well as running.

The winner was Karina Skidmore, the home’s clinical lead, who received a bottle of sparkling wine.

Valerie Johnson, the home’s well-being co-ordinator, who organised the event, said: “There were lots of screams from the staff as they ran along the course and cheers from the residents who came out to watch.

“It was so much fun that we will be making it an annual event.”
