Company News, Dukes Court, Wellingborough

Welcome to the Wild, Wild, Wellingborough

In September, Home Manager, Howdy (Heidi) Smith, spurred no effort in hosting an unforgettable Country Hoedown show for residents and staff at Dukes Court, which certainly didn’t receive any caterwauling! The day started in the ‘Dukes Saloon’, with residents donning cowboy hats, equipped with inflatable instruments, and listening to a selection of well-known country-themed songs from TV shows such as The Waltons, Dukes of Hazzard and Little House on the Prairie.

Residents then grabbed their partners for a Country Hoedown dance as they attempted the two-step line dance. Ensuring that the whole Dukes Court posse experienced the day, activities were repeated on both residential and memory care floors. Residents had a rootin’ tootin’ time, with Doreen saying, “I would like to thank the staff for bringing such an entertaining experience. I’ve had such a good time, and I really liked wearing a cowboy hat. Now I just need a horse!”
