Lasswade care home celebrates Bastille Day

Drummond Grange care home in Lasswade decided to celebrates Bastille Day this week.

Residents, their relatives and staff all got involved with the spirit of Bastille Day on their weekly Late Night Thursday by holding a cheese and wine night.

Residents sampled four wines all from different parts of France. They also had different varieties of French cheese to sample which they very much enjoyed. The residents then asked to listen to Les Miserables leading to discussions about past holidays to France and past trips to the theatre.
