The film this time will be “Mary Poppins Returns”. 
Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins — the beloved nanny from their childhood — arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.

 

New Dementia Friendly Garden opened
Situated near Ward 8 at Castle Hill Hospital our Dementia Friendly Garden space has been designed with a Wizard of Oz theme. Developed with the assistance of many people to give sensory prompts to people who might visit. Enhanced by the presence of an Amy moth, purchased and donated by John Hillaby, it is a striking example of how a largely unused space can be enhanced and given purpose. If you would like us to help you develop a garden then use our contact page to get in touch!
