Visit from Springfield Infant School Choir

Twenty children from Springfield Infant School will be coming to St Georges on 3rd December at 2pm to sing Christmas songs. They will be performing in the lounge. Please come and support the children. Apparently they are very good!

Carols by Candle Light at Davison School

We have been invited by Davison School to attend Carols by Candle Light which will be held on 9th December at 2pm. Christmas carols and readings will be performed by the Davison choir. Mince pies and drinks are served after by the children. Places are very limited so please talk to Lyn if you wish to attend.

Christmas raffle

Please buy your raffle tickets from staff. We have some lovely prizes this year. They will be displayed in the lounge. All money goes towards the resident’s fund. Prizes will be drawn on 18th December.

Trip to Haskins Garden Centre

We went to Haskins Garden Centre on 26th November. The residents enjoyed looking at the Christmas display and shopping for Christmas presents. We went for tea and cake in the café afterwards. We couldn’t believe the size of the cakes served in the café but to our surprise the residents polished them off quite easily!
