Around 170 of the people living at the Village enjoyed a
Caribbean buffet and some traditional dancing and music.
Residents and staff danced the night away as entertainment was
provided by a limbo dancer from London, as well as music from a
gospel choir and the Tropikal Vizions Steel Band.
Many of the guests chose to wear costumes, ranging from a simple
flower garland to Barry Logan's ambitious hat, which was decorated
in eggs and chicks to represent Easter Island.
Resident Don Osborne, who was acting as usher for the evening,
said that he was having a great time. "It's lovely to see the staff
getting involved as well, because they're usually working so hard,"
Paul Knight, the Village Activity Facilitator at New Oscott,
spent hours decorating the restaurant with a Caribbean feel. "We
have sun loungers, sun cream and even palm trees!" he said. "Every
day is a sunshine day at New Oscott."
