Olympic fever sweeps town
PUBLISHED: 13:30 07 August 2012
OLYMPIC fever swept through a nursing home this week when staff and residents took part in their own version of events.
The fun and games kicked off with a torch relay, which saw residents passing a replica of the famous symbol around Clarence Park Nursing Home in Weston.
That was followed by an Olympic ceremony where staff paraded flags from across the world.
The flags were then ceremoniously placed in the gardens of Clarence Park to signify the opening of the games.
As the fun got underway staff competed against each other for a gold medal in events like throwing the bean bag, an egg and spoon race, hula hoop and even a sprint race around the garden at the Clarence Road North site.
Residents, relatives and on-lookers cheered and applauded as staff entertained them all afternoon.
