Well I think we can say winter is officially here!

There’s nothing like a beautiful dusting of snow to get us all in the Christmas spirit and here at Meadows Edge Christmas is definitely getting well on the way.

All our Christmas decorations are now up and it is looking fabulous, Also our Christmas raffle tickets are now on sale. £1 a strip (all proceeds go to the residents fund) there are some lovely prizes and don’t forget the superb Christmas hamper, so don’t forget to buy your tickets at the office.

Entertainment and Activities.

November has been a busy month for us here. The residents really enjoyed their Bonfire Night Party, where they had some lovely food and lots of fun, singing and dancing together with our new karaoke machine.

This month we have also enjoyed flower arranging, bingo, skittles, the beanbag target game, football, manicures, quizzes, sensory activities, the fit and Fabulous exercise class, arts and crafts and much more.

In our weekly Knit and Natter club we have been learning a new stitch called the Spring stitch.

And in arts and crafts we made and decorated poppy’s for Remembrance day and then towards the end of the month we decided to get into the festive spirit by making Christmas cards, decorations and the good old paper chain!

We would also like to give a very warm welcome to our new residents John, Herbert, Maureen and Alan.

Staff News

We would also like to give a very warm welcome to our new carers Kristina, Elvira and Sue. And our new deputy manager and nurse Vicki.

Things to look forward too.

We have lots of festivities going on in December so here’s a couple of dates for the diary.
