Christmas countdown

Residents were taken back to their childhood as they reminisced whilst making orange pomanders and paperchains.

The Conservatory with the aroma of oranges and cloves gave a lovely hue of Christmas wafting around the lounges.

Talk was of Sunday School days and Christingle services and nativity plays that the residents had  enjoyed as children.

It’s  a shame that we cannot welcome the local school in this year to entertain the home, but we are fortunate to have some very talented relatives one of whom is a music therapist who have kindly offered to  bring in their musical instruments and entertain from behind the Perspex screen on December 22nd.

Our residents have also been making paper chains which we haven’t been able to hang this year due to regulations on infection control! But the home is not lacking in festive feel.

Our Carol Service will be on Friday 17th December at 2:00pm with our virtual choir and this will be followed by Mince pies and mulled wine.

Our “voices” have been blended together and will be played at the home whilst  relative will be singing along at Home.

On 23rd December, our Christmas party, Paul Watson , local entertainer, who has spent all of lockdown up in his attic singing songs for key workers , will be  entertaining us also from behind the screen.

We are sorry that we cannot welcome relatives into the home as usual, its been a year like no other, however we are making the season as Happy and festive as possible.
