Castle Farm Enjoys a Delightful Afternoon of Storytelling

Castle Farm Care Home was bustling with excitement this week as we welcomed the talented daughter of one of our residents for an afternoon of storytelling.  Heather Chamberlain, a retired primary school teacher and accomplished writer, entertained our rest home residents with a lively reading from her book, brought to life by her animated puppets.

Heather’s book is a humorous rhyming trilogy set in the fictional world of Happy Bottom, a setting inspired by the striking landscapes and quirky place names of Dorset.  Our residents were captivated and charmed by the hilarious story of hapless Major Payne and his search for a cheap house involving a number of fun events.

Written in a humorous rhyming style, the book features colourful illustrations by Robin Edmonds.  These characters were further brought to life by the puppets Heather brought with her to the care home, many of whom were inspired by animals that took up residence in her own garden.

Our rest home residents enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon of storytelling, engaging with a charming story that appeals to both the young and young at heart.  Many thanks to Heather Chamberlain for entertaining our residents and bringing a smile to their faces.

We believe a retirement home should be:

  • Where each person is an individual
  • Where there are no unnecessary rules and regulations
  • Where dignity, peace and comfort take priority
  • Where companionship, interest and activity flourishes.
  • And where people are supported to lead the fullest possible lives
