Olympic Fever at Braeside!

Residents at Braeside House joined in the Olympic fun last week by hosting their very own games.  Residents took part in lots of wonderful events including, a Sticky Ball Competition, Long Distance Walking and Bowling.  At the medal ceremony held on Thursday 9th August, the winners were presented with a medal, a chocolate medal and a pom-pom medal too! The ladies and gentlemen very much got into the spirit of the London 2012 Olympics, which started when they got a visit from the Olympic torch in July!
