As part of our weekly trip out, we took some of our residents to Occombe farm on 9th January. It was a bit cold but it was lovely to get some fresh air! One of our residents is not local to Devon and she really enjoyed getting to know some of our local attractions. A lovely hot drink warmed everybody up after seeing some of the animals.
What a busy period Christmas was for us! It started with our Christmas market held on Friday 30th November. We managed to get our decorations up with the help of our residents. We then managed to get access to “Jack and the Beans Stalk” pantomime directly from the Northcote Theatre, using streaming technology! Many Christmas parties then followed, including our staff party at Redcliffe Hotel on 15th December (no photos!!), then our day care centre parties and finally our residents’ party on Monday 24th December. We bought all our residents a present for Christmas, and all our Day Care resident went home with a nice chocolate box too!
Our Christmas meal was held in our café Harbour Cup and we had one big festive table in the middle for our big group, while accommodating couples and families!
We wanted to share our lovely photos, here is to a nice and well deserved rest!!
All Best Wishes for 2019 everyone!
Thank you Braeside for visiting us on Thursday 13th December. It is lovely to see the children getting to know us better and seeing them more comfortable with us!
Brixham College is now the third school joining our Intergenerational project. We had about 15 teenagers visiting us and getting to know our residents. We are so pleased with this initiative and would like to thank everyone involved!
Harbour Rise and Saint Christopher’s school are in the paper following their visit to Harbour Rise as part of the intergenerational project!
