Beach fun at nursing home

A nursing home is bringing the beach to Buxton with its first ever indoor beach party.

Portland Nursing Home, in Park Road, will host the party on Saturday, September 28, from 2pm to 4pm.

Members of the public are invited to attend the event, which will include sandcastles, paddling, ball games and karaoke with plenty of activities suitable for young and old. There will also be cake stalls and a tombola to raise money for a giant corner fish tank to entertain the home’s mainly elderly residents.

Many Buxton businesses have donated towards the fish tank, including Redferns, Stanway’s Electrical, Morris’s fish, Palin’s fruit and vegetables, Barbarrella’s, Simply Thai, Pizza Express, Waitrose, French Brassiere, Tony and Guy and Marks and Spencer’s.
