Celebrating the Spring Carnival

In early November, the Spring Racing Carnival raced into the Arcare Knox & Arcare Knox The Lodge communities.

The lifestyle team organised a variety of fun, horse racing inspired activities, that coincided with the various days during the Spring Racing Carnival such as: Oaks Day high tea, Melbourne Cup bingo, horse racing trivia and more.

Lifestyle assistant, Vicki decorated the two residences with some of the recycled flowers from the students Spring delivery in September, and handmade timber horses.

Free sweep competitions took place at both residences for the Melbourne Cup, Oaks Day and Stakes Day. Before the races commenced, lifestyle held fun horse-related trivia games to entertain the residents, before serving a selection of fine cheese and wines for the race.

New resident to The Lodge, Angela was thrilled to win the major prize on the Melbourne Cup race. Angela said that she couldn’t wait to tell her family that she had won.

Knox resident, Jack also won a major prize, after picking the winning horse.

“It’s a lot of fun, “ Jack said. “The lifestyle team have done a brilliant job this year, getting everything together for the Spring Carnival.”
