Christmas fun across Westward Care
We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to provide a wide range of activities at all of our locations – and this month the Activities team have excelled themselves.
Following on from a wonderful evening in October going to see Puccini’s Tosca at Opera North, Southlands Apartment residents have enjoyed making Christmas Arts and Crafts, their Annual Christmas party and Christmas tree light switch on and a visit from the Northeast Producers who performed ‘Puss in Boots’. It was wonderfully interactive and a particular highlight was discovering that the ‘princess’ was our very own chef, Liam.
Balbir Singh Dance Company are also visiting to perform their dance piece ‘A Taste of Love and Spice’ in December.
Headingley Hall have been busy with various entertainers visiting including Colin ‘Hotshot’ Archery, a Chanukah celebration for the Jewish Festival of Lights with the Jewish Brownie Pack singing and telling the story behind the celebration and a wonderful visit from Rose Court school children to sing carols.
After a tough audition process and weeks of rehearsals its almost time for the debut of performance by our budding thespians… on Friday 21st December the Headingley Hall team will be performing a Christmas comedy!
With lots of other activities still to come including the annual Friends and Family Coffee Afternoon, the Christmas Meal at Haley’s Hotel and the New Year’s Eve celebration with fireworks and fizz everyone has something to look forward to.
Christmas is always a busy time at Pennington Court with lots of craft activities including designing candle holders, a Christmas wreath competition, Christmas card making, jewellery making and designing baubles. Carol Concerts, a pantomime and a performance by Balbir Singh Dance Company will also take place this month.
We want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and New Year and we look forward to a planning lots of exciting events for 2019!
