Once again the festivities at Burntwood are well under way; We kicked off with our Christmas light switch on the 1st of December. Our foyer is twinkling with hundreds of fairy lights and of course the centre piece being our wonderful Christmas tree.
On the 7th we held our annual Christmas Fayre, family and friends of Burntwood joined our residents to have a fun filled evening, eating mince pies and other tasty Christmas goodies, an odd sample of mulled wine went down a treat too!!. There were stalls available to try our luck on the tombola or smell your way through the lots of beautiful candles on offer.
Our special guests for the evening were of course the main man himself “Santa” who had many admirers in the crowd, not all being children either!! Our residents thoroughly enjoyed sitting on Santa’s knee and having a chat even telling him what they wanted for Christmas! Not sure he will be able to help but who knows!
The very lovely Sarah Cave performed has “Princess Elsa” from frozen, enchanting the little ones with her beautiful singing and even got a few to join in with her.
An amazing time was had by all, and we managed to raise funds for our residents to use over the coming weeks to make Christmas just that little bit more special.
Still more exciting things to come here at Burntwood this December including Carol Singers from local church groups, and the much anticipated Christmas parties on the 22nd, carol singers from local church groups are also visiting soon, as always everyone is welcome to join us and party the afternoon away. We hope to see you all soon.
