We are pleased to be welcoming two shows performed by Cats Pyjamas Productions in the run up to Christmas. First will be "The Good Old Bad Old Days "on Tuesday 10th October at 6pm and the "Peter Pan" on Tuesday 5th December at 6pm.
Cat's Pyjamas Productions started providing entertainment for Care Homes, Day Centres and Sheltered Accommodation in 2007. The company was the brainchild of Carole Laine, a singer and actress who wanted to give the best West End quality small scale theatrical shows at a very affordable price.
Carole Laine has been performing professionally for over 20 years and has worked with such great acts as The Beverley Sisters, Cilla Black, Helen Shapiro, Max Bygraves, Jim Bowen, Sonia and many other well known entertainers.
She can often be seen in many of the theatres across the UK and Europe and has spent 3 years of her career cruising the world on some of the greatest liners. She has also appeared on film and television and has even been heard on radio.
Carole has a very strong work ethic and expects any person that works for the company to be just as professional and friendly. Only the most talented singers and actors will ever work for Cat's Pyjamas so the highest of standards can be maintained.

Norman Wisdom look-a-like performed at Shedfield Lodge!
We were so pleased to welcome Norman Wisdom look-a-like, Glenn Ford, to entertain us on Wednesday 25th October 2017.
Glenn was amazing. He arrived long before he was expected so he could spend time chatting with everyone, sharing stories, both funny and sentimental.
As well as performing as Norman Wisdom, Glenn also sang many other classic songs and even did a homage to Buddy Holly.
In the past few years, Glenn has walked from London to Cardiff and around The Isle of Man, where Sir Norman lived, for charity and in memory of the great man himself.
The Shedfield Lodge Memory Walk
Saturday 23rd September 2017
Members of our team took part in our very own Memory Walk, to help raise funds for Alzheimer's Society, on Saturday 23rd September 2017 along the West Meon Valley Trail. We started from Shedfield Lodge and headed through Wickham along the Meon Trail. We were planning the walk to be 10km but it ended up being 12km!
We would like to thank everybody that sponsored us and that made donations along the way! As soon as we have collected all sponsorship and counted up other donations we will let you know how much we raised for Alzheimer's Society
We hope you enjoy looking through photos of the day as much as we all enjoyed doing it. As you can see, the weather was perfect but we did have to stop a few times for refreshments!
Taking part were: Carol & Andrew Geach (Proprietors), Alicia Taskis (Manager), Nikki McCrudden (Head of Care), Mark Faulkes (Training & Recruitment), Maria Willis (Senior Care Team), Cassie Estelle (Senior Care Team), Simon (IT & Media), Darla the Husky & Stella the Lurcher!
