Murrayfield Home for the Elderly

On Thursday 2 November, six members of Lower 4 went to visit the Murrayfield Home for the Elderly with Miss Collins and Mrs Sloan.

We met lots of interesting residents, for example, a lady called Yvonne told us a story about her occupation before she retired.  She was in charge of the High Court.  Another residence told us about how he was a doctor and another had a passion for gardening.

We visited the coffee shop at the home, which was very nice, and had Tunnock tea cakes and apple juice.

One of the residents told us her daughter and grand-daughter also went to St George's.

It was a very nice afternoon and we enjoyed speaking to and meeting with the residents.

Olivia and Kitty, L4P
