Christmas is a magical time at Northfield House. Each year the people we support and staff at the home come together for a fun-filled month full of festive traditions.
Let’s see what they get up to…
Located in the centre of Weston-super-Mare, all of the people we support at Northfield House visit the Playhouse Theatre to watch the seasonal pantomime. This year, they will be watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!
Christmas lights – Trinity Rise, Burnham-on-Sea
The people we support enjoy visiting Britain’s most festive street, Trinity Rise in Burnham-on-Sea. Residents decorate their houses top to bottom with more than one mile of colourful Christmas lights, illuminate hedges and trees with fairy lights.
Voyage Care homes within the Somerset area come together to throw a festive ball at the luxurious Taunton School. The people we support and staff enjoy an assortment of refreshments and are able to dance the night away with a disco. The people we support at Northfield House have an absolute blast!
The people we support at Northfield House LOVE to bake so they make sure to schedule in some days of Christmas cake baking. When the cakes are finished, the people we support take them home to their families as a warm and lovely homemade gift.
West Somerset Railway Christmas carol train
Northfield House warm up their vocal chords when they attend West Somerset Railways’ Christmas Carol train. This is a spectacular journey between Minehead station and Bishops Lydeard with carols being sung at intervals along the line. Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Northfield House attend an annual Christmas carol service normally held at St Andrew’s church in Taunton. The people we support at the home give readings, read poems and Tim has led the church in a long prayer.
And there was no rest for the wicked! No sooner are they back in the vehicles and heading across the road to a hall for a disco.
All of the people we support and staff members at Northfield House come together for an annual Christmas lunch. A delicious three course meal is enjoyed, followed by our very own Tim doing an annual speech!
