November / December 2017

The year is running away with us..... We are now practicing for our Christmas play, 'The Twelve Days of Christmas', which will be performed by our residents at our Christmas party during December.

We have been making props for the production and singing it every day with Mel.  We certainly know the words off by heart now.  

Bertie - our own Minibus arrived and we have ventured out twice already.  We love Bertie as we are all together when we go out and about.  We went out to our monthly get together at the  Memory Cafe in Hartley, where we get to have a chat with others over a nice cuppa and a biscuit or two.  We were very lucky to be invited to the Longfield Academy Christmas Event, where some children spoilt us with coffee / tea, sandwiches, cakes and minced pies.  We all sang Christmas carols and had a Jolly time.   

During December we were entertained by Dave Smiler - who sang to us at our Christmas party.  It was so lovely to see so many relatives joining us for minced pies and mulled wine.  All donations and raffle money received goes straight into our Residents Fund.  A great party indeed!!  Our production of The Twelve Days of Christmas was such fun - residents and relatives all joined in with holding props, singing and dancing.

Also, during December, we had a visit from a local Concertina Band.  We were amazed by their talent at playing these interesting instruments.

More trips out in Bertie will be organised to Bluewater, local garden centres and more......

Merry Christmas from all at Fairby Grange.
