In time honoured Lawns tradition, we have attempted to shoehorn some of our 2019 events into this Christmas classic. No doubt we will be having a sing-song to this one and many others around our piano this festive season!
The Twelve Days of Christmas
12 Book Day Children
Thank you to the children of Kempsey Primary school for visiting us throughout the year. World Book Day with your super imaginative costumes (especially the Gangsta Grannies!) was a special highlight.
11 Kindness Postcards
Our challenge to combat loneliness has received amazing support. Our residents felt like they travelled the world this summer. They reply to every postcard, so do write if you are having a winter getaway.
10 (x10) Enormous rocks
Thank you to our wider Lawns community for answering our calls for help. From volunteering your time to share with residents, to transporting our team on snow days, to donating 100 rocks for our alpine garden.
And ice cream sundaes galore, enjoyed in the sunshine at our fabulous Summer Beach Party.
8 – don’t be late …
…. for this very important date. Another fantastic fundraiser: Our Mad Hatters Party. A magical day with the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat and the King and Queen of Hearts.
7 trays of mince pies
…….made by our residents and many, many more by our chef Anita. She starts Christmas Day here at 4.45am getting the turkey in the oven – a super star!
6 tiny tots
The children of Magic Moments pre-school have delighted our residents all year. Their squeals of laughter playing hide and seek in the lounge and catching bubbles in the garden – just lovely.
5 gold stars
An award winning year for us with a Gold Standards Framework Platinum Award and nomination for Care Home of the year. Well done Team Lawns!
4 legged friends
Animal antics with visits from all sorts of animals – the alpacas in the lift were particularly memorable!
3 Crazy pirates (well 2 and a parrot!)
Never a dull moment! Dress as a Pirate day was no exception! Silly pirate jokes and that naughty parrot.
2 Milk Tray men
You can imagine the delight on our ladies faces when two handsome chaps, all suited and booted, presented each of them with a red rose and a box of Milk Tray on Valentines Day.
And some Christmas bloomers worn by our Dee!
Join us for mince pies and some Christmas cheer at any one of our Christmas events! We look forward to welcoming you.
