21st December 2011 – Bushell House Christmas Party

At 3.00pm The Land Girls arrived to entertain residents, their families and friends at our Christmas Party.  The Land Girls are a marvellous troupe of volunteers who sing and perform simple dance routines to wartime favourites and raise money for the Sue Ryder Charity by doing so.  All those at the party were given Union Jacks to wave and everybody joined in with the familiar songs. Afterwards, the Chairman of the Trustees, Mr Andrew Penney said a few words and then the manager Mrs Susan Jones called the raffle.  There were many lovely prizes which had been kindly donated as had  the ‘Guess the number of Sweets’ in a jar donated by ‘Sweet Traditions’ which was won by Mrs Liz Pattinson.  The money from the raffle and sweets went to the Residents Amenities Fund. Finally we enjoyed a glass of wine with the delicious buffet put on by the cook at Bushell House.  It was a very happy occasion.
