We’re getting into the Christmas spirit at Foxhunters!
Date of news/blog: 12th December 2019
It’s our second Christmas in Foxhunters this year and we are already feeling festive! Our ladies and gentlemen have been getting into the Christmas spirit, with lots of seasonal activities and festive cheer to go around.
With a few new faces in Foxhunters this year, we’ve been thinking back to our very first Christmas in the home. In the words of the niece of our very first resident, Verity said:
“I can’t believe it’s been a year. When aunty Rhian was first here, she was sitting in the lounge with this beautiful Christmas tree beside her.”
Here’s what our ladies and gentlemen have been up to this Christmas…
19th November – A festive trip to Trago Mills
To kick-off the Christmas period, we took a festive trip to Trago Mills in Merthyr Tydfil where our ladies and gentlemen had a browse and did some Christmas shopping. We had a fantastic time exploring and even enjoyed a nice hot drink in the café afterwards!
2nd December – Making Christmas crafts
Our ladies and gentlemen have been taking part in lots of Christmassy art and craft workshops, making everything from advent candles out of card to Christmas characters out of sheep’s wool. We’ve been so impressed with what they’ve created and are pleased to say many of them are proudly displayed throughout the home!
4th December – Foxhunters Christmas Fayre
On December 4th, Foxhunters hosted a Christmas Fayre which was full of festive fun, music, stalls and mince pies. All were welcome to attend, from family and friends to members of the public… We even had a visit from Danny the donkey! Our ladies and gentlemen had a fantastic day browsing the stalls, spending time with family and getting into the Christmas spirit.
8th December – Christmas carols from our local school
We spent a lovely afternoon listening to the pupils of Deri View primary school sing traditional Christmas carols. Many of our ladies and gentlemen even joined in, saying that it brought back lots of happy memories and feelings of festive nostalgia.
