Meridian Healthcare’s Augustus Court Care Centre hosted two exciting events during September, which aimed to inspire and evoke the memories of residents and guests.

The M&S Company Archive Memory Box event was full of original garments from the 1940s to the 1970s, with the occasion evoking memories and inspiring conversations of fashions of the past.

Internationally renowned Yorkshire artist Ashley Jackson also paid a visit to the care home to talk all things Yorkshire, providing an insight into his specialist landscape watercolour work.  

Betty Goddard, resident, commented: “The artist event was excellent, it brought back memories of his studio in Halifax and renewed my interest in art. Please bring him back!”

Welcoming guests on the day was Meridian Healthcare’s Kim Morris, Home Administrator. She added: “It was very interesting to hear about Ashley’s interest in art and how it all began. We also all really enjoyed the memory event and one resident even put on her own fashion show!”

Run by Meridian Healthcare, Augustus Court is located in the area of Church Gardens in Garforth near Leeds.
