The residents of the Manors of Mosman retirement village in Sydney enjoyed a festive Saint Patrick’s Day lunch earlier this week. Around fifty residents attended the lunch and were greeted with a beautifully decorated dining room, with plenty of green and Irish shamrocks. Those who attended really got into the spirit of the day, dressing in green hats, bow ties, shirts, Alice bands and green bows. The village chef, Craig excelled himself by preparing a delicious array of food and the rest of the village staff were in great form, as always. Traditional songs were sung, Irish stories were told, limericks were recited, jokes were shared (mostly clean), and wine was drunk in moderation, of course. A number of new residents have moved to The Manors of Mosman in the past few months and all who attended the lunch were well looked after by the long term residents. The Manors has a buddy system for welcoming newcomers which makes moving in just that bit more comfortable.
