We have had a smashing time over Christmas and the New Year here at Burntwood Hall.
Our festivities began with our well known Christmas parties; we had two parties this year so twice the fun and laughter! Our first party this year kicked off with the fabulous Peter Piper singing tunes from the past and a few Christmas songs. Residents and staff sang along, clapping, laughing and enjoying the show. Then it was time for the party food lots of sandwiches, mince pies and the very delicious trifle
Party two was next on our agenda and our entertainment was provided by the lovely Charlotte Rose Singing a wonderful array of Christmas songs getting everyone up and singing. More gorgeous party food was consumed by everyone.
Our residents enjoyed a lovely home cooked dinner on Christmas day with all the trimmings lots of full bellies! And of course the obligatory afternoon snooze!
With the festivities over for another year, we are now on to planning the next few months’ activities, and look forward to seeing lots of you join us again.
Just a reminder that we hold coffee morning every Tuesday at 10.30am everyone welcome.
All that’s left to say is a very big thank you from everyone at Burntwood for your continued support.
Two student nurses from UWS Dumfries Campus came along to visit Alma as part of their university project looking at promoting physical activity. The students researched literature to see what activities have been researched as being beneficial to the older generation that would benefit all or at least most individuals at Alma house and then came along and carried out these activities with an interactive session of various exercise activities. This has been the 3rd year we have supported the students who are ever so grateful for our support. Our residents had a fun filled afternoon.read more
