Ashwood’s Royal Ascot Ladies Day
As it wasn’t possible to go to Royal Ascot for Ladies Day, the team at the Care Centre invited residents to Ashwood Ladies’ Derby Day instead. Everyone came adorned in their best hats, the ladies looked elegant and the men very suave. They sat in their own private boxes reserved for each individual household and were served with homemade fairy cakes washed down with Pimms and lemonade while they searched through their betting slips. Congratulations to all the winners!

Her friend remembered this and bought her a pretty bouquet, along with new slippers and her favourite strawberries.
