During a recent visit to Manchester, where I spent time with our staff teams in Community, I had the absolute pleasure and privilege of joining some of our wonderful Manchester members for a lovely evening meal. Arriving at the home of Daniel, Paul, Adam and Neil, both Andrea Page (Head of Supported Living) and I were greeted warmly and enthusiastically, and we felt right at home instantly. Our hosts were charming and generous, preparing a beautiful full Sunday Roast style dinner (including four different types of vegetables!), followed by homemade carrot and chocolate cakes with ice cream. Being good guests, after the meal Andrea and I happily donned pink marigolds and got stuck into the washing up, much to the amusement of our hosts! A truly superb evening and a very special experience indeed to share the warmth and hospitality of some of the people supported by Langdon.
