A Winter Wonderland at Rowan Lodge
Residents, staff and the local community came together at Rowan Lodge to spread the Christmas cheer at their annual Winter Fayre, held on Sunday 2nd December.
The main events of the day included the musical delights of the Carnival Chorus Choir and a Magical Snow Globe, transporting the attendees to a Winter Wonderland. These multi-sensory activities engaged the residents, particularly those living with Dementia, along will all generations of family and friends. A variety of other activities were hosted throughout the day, including; a tombola, raffle, festive lunch and craft fayre whilst mulled wine and mince pies were served throughout the day.
Residents were delighted with the Magical Snow Globe experience, which made everyone smile. One resident said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the snow globe and can’t wait to do it again! It was a marvellous event and very well attended”.
The care home was beautifully decorated in Christmas trimmings, including handmade ornaments made by the residents.
The Winter Fayre was a great success. Dan Binney, Home Manager of Rowan Lodge, says “Thank you to everyone who attended Rowan Lodge’s Annual Christmas Fayre, the whole home was alive with festive cheer. The choir entertained us all whilst people shopped for Christmas from our various stalls. Most importantly, a big thank you to all, from all the residents and staff, for helping us raise over £500 for the residents fund”.
Staff made everyone feel welcome and were delighted to see so many generations come together for all the residents during this festive season.
