Fosse House celebrated Diwali last night, decorating the sun lounge along the ‘Festival of Light’ theme for 2 of their residents and their families. They brought out samosas, pakoras and Indian sweets and had Bangra music playing. The evening was wrapped up with a fireworks finale for the residents and their families. It was a truly lovely night with one of the resident’s wives saying “out of all the Diwalis I have celebrated, I will remember this one the most, thank you all”.
