Chinese New Year

On 5th February, residents of Camphill Milton Keynes celebrated the Chinese New Year.
Chinese New Year (or generally referred to as Lunar New Year globally) is the Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese Calendar. The festival is usually referred to as the Spring Festival in mainland China, and is one of several Lunar New Years in Asia. Observances traditionally take place from the evening preceding the first day of the year to the Lantern Festival, held on the 15th day of the year. The first day of Chinese New Year begins on the new moon that appears between 21 January and 20 February. In 2019, the first day of the Chinese New Year was on Tuesday, 5 February, initiating the Year of the Pig.

Quiz Night

On Monday 21st January, there was Quiz Night at the Chrysalis Theatre in Camphill Milton Keynes.
Each team appointed a captain. We were not allowed to call out the answers and mobile phones had to be switched of. Residents who contributed questions were to come out to the front while they were being read out.
Papers had to be marked at the end by another team. Staff were allowed to help although residents had to try and answer first.
Sunwood House won this event and the prize was a £100 cinema card.
