Christmas at Charnley House care home Hyde

Christmas Partying & 2023 So Far

We’re always busy here at Charnley House, and Christmas and January have been no exception so far, despite the cold and dreary weather!

We had a wonderful Christmas Party with games, music, decorations and lots of lovely party food on the buffet.

A few of our gents have had some extremely serious games of darts. Looks like we’ll have to get a league going here now! All friends in the end though.

Whilst our ladies have had a few relaxing games of Snakes & Ladders and the Safari Game.
