The care home will be hosting its Annual Christmas Carol Service in conjunction with North Featherstone Junior and Infant School.
This year it will be at 10.45 am on Friday 14th December.
It is a fun occasion which the residents and the kids all enjoy. Below are some videos from last year.
We have a number of events that are coming up to do with Christmas as well as the large Christmas party on the 18th December from 1-3pm.
The other events include a number of residents visiting St Wilfreds School to interact with the children there. This is an important event, unfortunately many youth do not have access to grandparents and have connection and ultimately respect for “the greatest generation”.
It is a good opportunity for them to engage each other and bridge the gap.
Then we also have the annual Carol service from the Junior School and infant School. More details will be released soon.
The day after the Easter party, we had arranged for the local school children to come to the care home. They spent time talking to the residents.
Later the children sang songs for the residents and they also brought cakes for everyone to share….
