We took a stroll around the grounds as it was a nice clear day. We took a couple of scenic photos around the main pond that was a nesting ground for a variety of birds.
We discovered the games room where we spent some time playing pool, table tennis, darts and various other fun games.
We couldn't believe it! Santa had been! We excitedly opened our presents and made our way to meet the magical man himself!
The sight of Santa Claus making his way to each table to hand out gifts to us all. We couldn’t wait to meet the man of the moment in Santa's grotto. He was so friendly; everybody got a warm welcoming hug as we took turns to have our photos with him and his cheeky elves.
The Christmas lunch was a delicious traditional turkey dinner with all the fun of the noisy party poppers and crackers. We put on our hats and all took it in turns to tell the funny jokes.
We visited the Lakeside Coastal Village where we had booked an archery session. The competition continued and the group did very well showing off their bow and arrow skills. A few good shots on target were made by Armon, Gwen and Linda. Marguerite needs more practice (was the advice from the group)!
Panto time, oh yes it was! We weren’t disappointed as Dick Whittington and his cat took us on his journey to London. The energetic, funny, colourful performance was great fun. We even got a chance to take photos with the performers at the end.
We all changed in to our best clothing for the evening ahead!
The evenings were full of fabulous entertainment with familiar Christmas favourites and the more popular dances: line dancing and the Cha- Cha- Cha. That proved to be a hit with our group!
