our xmas fayre

today we held our annual xmas fayre, and it was a great success, thanks to our residents (marie and marian) who manned a stand, our volunteers, christiane, joan, allison, carolyn and caroline, all the people who came to support us and our kind gardener who provided the plants. also thanks to joan and sheila who made lots of gorgeous cakes, and karen who knitted for england. it was a great team effort and I think we raised over £400 (double that of last year's fayre) which was amazing.

I think we will have to have a spring fayre next march/april - something to look forward to!

Carolyn served mulled wine and mince pies - and played the first christmas music of the year...

happy birthday pat

pat celebrated her birthday today; here she is opening her cards, and wearing her new brooch (a present from MEH)

then at super time, out came the birthday cake (made by Sheila) and she had to blow out the candles while the residents sang 'happy birthday' She was joined by her family (laden with cards and presents and flowers) so hope she has a lovely evening.
