The 2018 Christmas Fayre

Preparations for our annual Christmas Fayre always start well in advance. Our residents crafted beautiful items to sell at the fayre. These ranged from lavender bags, to gift tags, to chocolate wreaths. It was a wonderful afternoon when we welcomed families and friends and enjoyed Christmas shopping, mince pies and a good catch up.

We raised a fabulous £331.29 for our residents’ fund. Thank you to all our residents and staff. Also thank you to Jenny for making all the mince pies and to the many local business who supported us. These were Wharton Park, Merchants Fish and Chip Shop, The George Hotel, Bewdley Tescos and The Co-Operative Superstore.

Out and about

We have had lots of excursions to enjoy all the festivities of our local community.

There were Christmas drinks with old friends at The Brinton Arms in Stourport.

Our Ladies who Lunch had afternoon tea at Wharton Park. A beautiful setting and delicious food.

We took a bus full of residents to the Dementia Cafe Christmas party, where we caught up with our friends from Summerdyne Nursing Home and the community.

In house entertainment

There has been a lot of singing and dancing at Summerdyne. Rock and rolling with Richard King. Beautiful singing from Pippa Langhorne. Singing and exercising with Adele, with Christmas props and a funny snowball fight in the lounge! Connie Frost played her cello for residents in the lounge and took individual music requested. She also played for residents in their rooms. 

The meaning of Christmas

Riverside Church visited for a Christmas service with our residents. There were carols sung and bible stories and reflection on the true meaning of Christmas. We also enjoyed their games, jokes and brilliant sense of humour.

Christmas treats for the kiddies

We have a wonderful relationship with the staff and children of St Anne’s Primary School. Following the success of the Easter treats, our knitting residents wanted to make something for the children at Christmas time. They knitted 50 Christmas treat bags, which St Anne’s sold at reception. We were delighted that they sold in 4 days and raised £50 for our residents fund.

Christmas treats

We have lots more Christmas activities planned. Please do call us if you would like to hear about our events and join us. We always welcome visitors.

From everyone at Summerdyne, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
