All Board the Fernlea Princess Cruise Line!
The residents of Fernlea House in Cardenden, are about to embark on a yearlong virtual cruise thanks to the creativity of Home Manager “Captain” Caitlin Watson and her wonderful crew of staff.
When resident Kate Glover, told Caitlin how much she misses being able to travel, Caitlin and her team quickly went to work to organize the trip of a lifetime for Kate and her friends.
They have organised a yearlong event, with the home virtually visiting a different country each month including France, Italy, Germany, Greece, and Australia.
To celebrate each virtual-stop the home will be hosting a variety of activities including sampling local cuisine, crafts, games, and VR tours.
To add to the fun, each month three individuals will be awarded ‘Resident of The Month’, they will each receive a medal and be able to sit at the captains table for lunch each day.
Their first stop is France, where their Chef Paul, has already put together an amazing menu including Croque Monsieur, Coq au Vin and a section of French wines and cheeses.
