A wonderful time was had by all at the Bank Close House Christmas party on Friday 13th December!

“Thunderroadz” entertained our residents with songs from across the generations and finished off with an ensemble of Christmas songs.

A fine and festive buffet was held afterwards and all residents drew out the raffle tickets. All the winning tickets are displayed on the Notice Board in reception, so take a look and see if you’re one of the lucky winners!

All the staff and residents enjoyed the singing and entertainment and a massive £320 was raised through the raffle and Christmas market.

A residents meeting has also been held where the residents decided they would like some additional decorations in the garden. A selection of pictures were shown to all the residents and they all decided on some metal animal artworks to be displayed around the grounds of the back garden.

Merry Christmas to everyone from all at Bank Close House!
