Manor House welcomed the holiday season with open arms at its heartwarming Christmas Fayre on December 9th. Following the tremendous success of last year’s event, we once again created a festive atmosphere that resonated with residents, families, and the local community.
The highlight of the Christmas Fayre was undoubtedly the showcase of residents’ creativity. Charming stalls adorned with handcrafted Christmas cards, tree decorations, and other festive items displayed the artistic talents of our residents. The community gathered to appreciate and purchase these one-of-a-kind creations, contributing to the warm and festive atmosphere that filled the air.
Children experienced the magic of the season at Santa’s Grotto, where they received thoughtful presents, creating enchanting moments for all. The generosity of M&S added a delicious touch to the occasion with donations of mince pies and pretzels, enhancing the culinary delights of the Christmas Fayre.
Adding an element of excitement, raffle tickets were sold throughout the event, with winners eagerly anticipating the prize announcements on December 15th. The suspense surrounding the raffle prizes added an extra layer of enjoyment to the festivities. A lively tombola provided attendees with the chance to win an array of prizes, fostering engagement and participation from both residents and visitors.
The outdoor marquee hosted a variety of food vendors, treating attendees to seasonal delights such as mulled wine, Frankfurt sausages, and other festive delicacies. The cheerful ambiance created by these vendors complemented the holiday spirit, making the Christmas Fayre a memorable experience for all who attended.
Jayne, Director of Nursing and registered Manager at the Manor House, says, ” I extend heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of the Christmas Fayre. From our Activities Team and dedicated team of qualified nurses and care professionals to the generous donors and enthusiastic participants, the event not only brought joy to Manor House residents but also fostered a beautiful sense of community spirit during this festive season.”
As we reflect on the heartwarming moments shared at the Christmas Fayre, we look forward to more celebrations that bring people together in the spirit of joy and community.
