To celebrate the Chinese New Year, service users at Ashby House had two activity packed days’ worth of celebrations. The first day all the staff and service users spent the day preparing costumes for the evening and cooking a wide variety of Chinese themed food for a meal for all. The idea behind cooking the food with the service users was to ensure that all the service users were engaged in the preparation of the meal rather than just getting a takeaway, whilst make sure that the food formed part of the healthy meal plans that we use.
After a nights full of laughter and fun the following day staff and service users caught the train into Birmingham city’s China Town district and spent the day being part of all the celebrations. Getting the chance to see all the shows, costumes, and sampling more of the authentic food that was on offer.
A great couple of days that were enjoyed by all!
