Activities – December 2016

February 5th, 2017

Our activities during December started with us decorating our Christmas Tree which was then followed by Mabb Lane singing for our Residents in the Market Place.  In keeping with the Christmas spirit we also varied some of our usual favourites and enjoyed Christmas quizzes and crosswords.

During December we had lots of singing and dancing as Merseyside ‘Just Sing’ choir, St Vincent’s School Choir, Broughton Hall Choir, ‘Mood Swing’s and the Pastoral Ladies all came and sang for our Residents, we would like to say a big thank you to all for donating their time to come and celebrate the festive period with us here at Christopher Grange.

We also held our own Christmas Markets which was a huge success and some of our Residents attended a Christmas Lunch at the Suites Hotel where we enjoyed ‘name that tune’, Bingo and some entertainment.  Some Residents also attended the Philharmonic Hall for the Welsh Christmas Carol Concert.

We held a couple of Christmas craft afternoons this month which included creating our own Christmas Cards and Decorations and we also perfected our culinary skills by decorating Christmas Cakes – we held a competition on Christmas Eve which was judged by Paul our Chef who picked the Residents from Greenside as our overall winner!

Our annual Residents Christmas Party held in the Rehabilitation Centre was a big success this year.  Our Residents were welcomed with drinks before enjoying a three course meal and our Residents enjoyed the entertainment from ‘Dicky Tickers’.  The party was a successful occasion and all Residents thoroughly enjoyed their evening.

We ended the festive celebrations by enjoying various film afternoons which included films like ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ and ‘Its a Wonderful Life’.

We would like to take this opportunity to give a massive thanks to the RVS for their very kind and generous donation and to thank all the volunteers at the RVS Coffee Shop who give their time and support and who provide a wonderful, social experience that our Residents and their families value and enjoy.
