Carols, crackers and crafts all part of the festive fun for Hillside residents

A packed Christmas events calendar at Hillside Care Home in Huyton, Merseyside, has included visits from carol singers from nearby St Columbus Church and a performance by a ukulele band.

Residents have also been out for three-course meals out at one of our favourite restaurants, The Grapes Hotel, in St Helens. These celebratory events have featured crackers, party hats and entertainment in the form of a post-lunch quiz.

Our activities co-ordinator, Liam, said: “As well as our trips out, we’re having three Christmas parties in the home for residents of the different units. Friends and family are all invited to come along and join in the fun.

“The residents have been helping to trim our trees and they have made decorations to hang from our ceilings, as well as making their own rooms look festive.”
