Onam 4.jpgLongmoor House wish to say a big thank you to all the nurses who organised Onam celebrations on last, this was enjoyed by all staff throughout the unit.  

The homemade food was delicious and it was a fabulous insight into how different cultural celebrations take place.

Onam is an annual Indian festival which celebrates the return from the underworld of King Mahabali, who was considered a great ruler. One of the highlights of the festival for many is the Onam sadya or feast where vegetarian food is often served en masse in the community, in restaurants or at homes, and is always presented on a banana leaf. 

Our nurses placed a flower arrangement within the dining room – to welcome King Mahabali.
