At The Berkshire Care Home in Wokingham we have forged a lovely relationship with the local nursery and thoroughly enjoy having the children visit us each month. For our most recent get together we invited them to give us a helping hand with decorating our Christmas tree.
Nursery teacher Jackie arrived with the excited children on 1st December and it was time to get to work (and play!). We got all our decorations out in baskets and the children had a great time choosing the baubles and hanging them on the tree.
When we were satisfied that we had created the most beautiful Christmas tree in the world, we treated everyone to cakes to thank them for their hard work and handed out crackers which the children pulled with our residents. The morning ended with everyone gathering around the tree and joining in with the song 'We wish you a merry Christmas'. Festive fun at its very best!
Joy Bell, one of our residents said "What a joy to see little children running around and putting decorations on the tree. I’m so happy, this has been a truly magical morning!"
