We are so pleased to confirm that Saint Christophers’ school (Staverton – Primary) has started to visit Harbour Rise. Reception class came to visit our residents for the first time on 4th December. The children behaved beautifully and sang Christmas songs to our residents in the lounge and in some of our residents’ rooms. They also made some Christmas decorations and both children and residents got stuck in and enjoyed themselves. It was amazing to be involved in this, we can’t wait for them to return in the New Year.
We are thrilled to announce that we hosted our Christmas Market on Friday 30th November. We had 10 stalls all together and the event was very well attended. We sang, ate some mince pies, drank mulled wine, and even had a bit of a dance. Thank you to all of you who were involved with the event, either holding a stall, donating a raffle prize or visiting, the event was very successful.
Thank you to Braeside Nursery for coming back to see us today, and making us smile and laugh. It is lovely to see you all!!
We are thrilled to announce that Braeside Nursery came in this morning, and 8 children (4 years old) played, painted, talked and interacted with our residents. Needless to say it was FA-BU-LOUS!! I hope you enjoy our photos. One anecdote: the children were amazed to learn that one of our residents is 101 years old!!
Moving forward, Braeside will be coming over on a weekly basis. Saint Christophers’ school will also participate in our intergenerational project and will visit us on Tuesday 4th December. Brixham College are visiting us on Friday 7th December. So, we have pre-school, primary and secondary all covered!!
To celebrate their 100 years anniversary, Fermoys donated a beautiful 6 ft tree to Harbour Rise. The tree stands in our café area and given the colours of the room, we opted for purple and green Christmas decorations! We therefore decided to name our tree the “Purple Angel Tree” to support our friends at Purple Angel Charity. A big thank you to our Friends at Fermoys for donating your gorgeous tree.
