December at Footherley Hall began with decorations going up everywhere, it’s like our home comes alive with Christmas and it’s just lovely to be a part of it all coming together, including our Crib displayed just outside. We have gone through the month enjoying a never-ending succession of activities and outings!
As many as possible went to Lichfield SVP Christmas Party -with entertainment, lunch and, of course, Father Christmas! Some of the residents also went to our local Garden Centre to look at the array of festive decorations and gifts.
We’ve also had our Carol Service, an in-house panto “A Christmas Carol” by North East Productions, an outing to St John´s Church for the Nativity and Carol Singing, and even the Local Scouts visited us to sing Carols!
Some of our residents took great delight in making lovely gingerbread cookies and enjoyed the fruits of their efforts by eating them!
We celebrated our Christmas Party with residents and staff members followed by music from Bitz and Pieces. Friends of Footherley were as great as always, brought presents for everybody and made a huge Raffle possible.
Thank you to everyone who has come along this year and/or has been a part of this very festive month making our Christmas at Footherley as special as it has been.
