St Mary’s Get into the Festive Spirit

Mince pies and Mother Goose help residents to get into the Christmas spirit.

Residents of St Mary’s Nursing Home in the Greater Manchester suburb of Moston have been enjoying a packed calendar of festive events.

November included a trip to the local pub for lunch and a beach-themed afternoon in the garden room with fish and chips, ice cream and seaside music.

December began in style with a Christmas tree and decorations day in which residents were encouraged to help deck the halls. A few days later came a trip to a pantomime – Mother Goose – followed by a Christmas party day with a buffet for all residents, and entertainment from old time rock and rollers Glen’s Girls.
Mince pies and mulled wine continued the festive feel in the run-up to the big day.

The Christmas party wasn’t the first time Glen’s Girls had performed at St Mary’s. They were returning after a successful show in November – at which a visiting local authority inspector joined in the singing and dancing!
