Melbourne Cup Carnival

The Spring Racing Carnival came to life at Cumberland View Aged Care Living, Whalley Drive with a week-long festival of activities.

The Ladies Craft Group created fascinators fascinators and decorated hats to wear.

Staff member Nicky Westland made the wonderful gesture of bringing her horse in. Residents were thrilled to pat and admire the gentle beast.

On cup day, both residents and staff came together to watch the race. With champagne and finger food on hand, all eyes were on the big screen as Almandin rode to a famous victory. The annual cup sweep was won by 4 residents!

Fashion on the fields on Oaks Day concluded the CarnivalĂ­s festivities. There was a great mixture of both residents and staff showing off their fines with the eventual winner being Bernarda.
