New Year's Party with Netty & Duncan

New Year's Party
We started our New Year holiday off as we meant to go on. We hit the dance floor as the fantastic entertainment team sang songs from the Jackson Five and the pop legend Michael Jackson. We danced the night away, showing off our own groovy moves! 

We loved spending time in the games room which had a great range of games and activities which everyone had a go at. Simon was very good at coaching the group with their pool and snooker playing skills.

We were also pretty good at ice hockey and table tennis.

New Years Eve started off with a bang as we put on our smart clothes and made our way to the lake to watch the mesmerising firework display. We were wowed by the amazing patterns and colours the fireworks made, lighting up the night sky. 

 Dinner was a feast and the table was decorated with crackers, party poppers and streamers. 

We stopped and watched the bagpiper perform some well-known songs and then had the opportunity to have some photos taken with him before heading inside to continue the party. 

   We hit the dance floor straight away and boogied on down. This was then followed by a really cool band called Foxx, who played lots of lively, well-known songs which really got the party started! Before we knew it, it was almost midnight. We joined the other holiday makers on the dance floor and participated in the countdown to 2020. As the clock stuck 12 and balloons fell from the ceiling, we sang Auld Lang Syne and wished each other a very Happy New Year. 

New Year's Party with Andy & Claire

New Year's Party
 It was a beautiful, brisk winters day and we made the most of the blue skies by taking in the sights of Great Yarmouth. The beach views were stunning. 

We had great fun in the bowling alley with some brilliant scores and strikes. Trisha was crowned champion, winning overall with a brilliant score of 100, although Mikey was only a whisker behind with a fabulous score of 99.

We of course then hit the arcades trying our luck on the fun games. We loved spending our penny's on the 2p machines. 

The evening entertainment was fantastic and the in-house entertainment team performed incredible tribute acts. One of our favourites was the iconic rock band 'Queen'. The singers in Majestic Voices were incredibly talented and performed high energy dance routines. It was then our turn to show off our groovy moves on the dance floor!

 We took our seats for the festive pantomime, Aladdin. ... Oh no it wasn't..... Oh yes it was! The entertainment team did a cracking job with the costumes and acting, and we all had a tremendous time being part of the fun.  

  We practised our skills with a bow and arrow, endeavouring to hit the target at the archery enclosure. At the end we all had a friendly competition to see who had mastered it.

We started of our New Year celebrations in style. Our evening started with a wonderful firework display. They exploded in a kaleidoscope of colours, sizzling, whizzing, banging and fizzing. It was stunning. 

We were treated to a delicious meal and the tables were decorated with crackers, blowers, party poppers and fun balloons that whizzed through the air. The squeaking made everyone laugh. 

There was a real party atmosphere in the ballroom and the  entertainment team performed a musical review of all their shows in 2019, followed by the melodic strains and dulcet tones of Crackerjax. 

Everyone was in high spirits and couldn't wait to show off their enthusiastic dancing and imaginative moves. The ultimate 80's band The Wild Boys, saw us all into the New Year countdown, with immaculately choreographed and polished dance routines. Just before the countdown to the New Year began, a bagpipe player in full Scottish regalia piped us in, in style into the New Year.
