Residents post their Christmas cards at Sandycroft

A festive red post box has been a focal point and topic of conversation at Sandycroft Nursing Home in Blackpool.

Made by our handyman, Paul, the beautiful fixture has been installed in a prominent spot next to our Christmas fireplace and hearth scene, in our lounge.

Residents have been keeping busy, penning festive cards to friends and family, then sticking stamps on envelopes, before posting their mail in the box.

Our administrator, Georgia, said: “We put the box there to add to the Christmas spirit – it looks lovely, and has been acting as a reminder to residents to write their cards in time for the last posting date before the big day.

“Staff members have been emptying the box regularly and making sure every item reaches the postal system safely!”
