Crosswords were had at Holbrook Hall on Thursday. You will be glad to hear that these were the puzzle type and not the angry type 😁!

Our residents really enjoyed testing their cognitive skills as it gave them a chance to recover from their Olympic physical activities on Tuesday.Brains as well as brawn…. our residents are a very talented bunch!

It was actually a very difficult puzzle but as a group we managed to work it through and complete it-which was very satisfying. Bravo everyone!
