Gone Fishing

Once a month, a group of our male residents from Albury & District head out on a fishing trip with staff members Glen and Scott. Seats on the bus are always in high demand, as residents from all areas of the home are amongst the participants.

A recent trip was particularly memorable – a barbecue was held for lunch on the day, but this wasn’t any ordinary ‘Q’! An 85-year-old plough disc was used to cook the meat on an open fire, which, to the delight of the guys, was absolutely perfect.

Watching their lunch cooked this way brought back a wealth of memories for our residents, and soon enough they were taking turns spinning yarns and reminiscing about their past.

Some amazing stories were shared, and bonds were formed on a day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
