Christmas is a wonderful time of year and the residents of Northcote Lodge have been fully engaged in planning, decorating and celebrating the forthcoming holiday.
We had an outing to choose the perfect tree everyone enjoyed decorating. It has pride of place in reception in the heart of the cafe where everyone can enjoy the wonderful scent of pine and the twinkly lights.
We have had outings to the Panto, Christmas Carol concerts, festive get togethers, dances and there is a choir coming in to entertain this weekend. There was quite a frisson of excitement when it was announced Elvis is booked to come in and sing a few songs on the 22nd to celebrate Anne and Freda’s birthdays. Let’s hope he’s got some thermal blue suede shoes as the weather has certainly been wintery!
This time of year means its harder to get out and about so when the frost is hard and the snow has fallen everyone enjoys watching the birds at the feeders, the occasional red deer that leaps into the garden and other wintery woodland goings on.
With an open door policy friends and family are always welcome to pop in for a cup of tea and a mince pie from dawn til dusk and beyond – so don’t be a stranger. You will always get a warm welcome.
Merry Christmas to you and yours from all residents, friends and staff at Northcote.
