On Saturday 20th December we had our annual Christmas party for family and friends of the Residents at Fairby. This year we were also joined by 6 Cadets and an Officer of Dartford ATC, who during the evening served and danced with some of the residents.
We were treated to traditional mince pies and mulled wine. Steve Erickson provided the entertainment with music and songs for us to sing along with and dance to.
Our Christmas raffle raised money for our residents fund and would like to thank those who donated prizes and supported the event.
The Residents enjoyed an excellent traditional dinner of Roast Turkey, Pigs in Blankets along with all the trimmings. This was followed by Christmas Pudding, Mince Pies and Brandy Sauce. In the evening there was a Christmas supper with a homemade Christmas cake made by a member of staff.
Residents were taken to the ATC Centre in Dartford, where they were entertained by the cadets for the afternoon, met the Mayor of Dartford, served refreshments and given gifts.
Residents were taken to Bluewater to do some Christmas shopping followed by coffee and cakes.
Some residents attended Millbrook Garden Centre for morning coffee and cakes.
