Visiting the Metro Centre to see the Christmas lights.

By 11th November, 2019 News No Comments

A small group of residents and volunteers visited the Metro Centre last week on an outing to see the Christmas lights. Everyone was very impressed, especially with the enormous decorative reindeers, poppy cascade, Christmas trees and statues! We all enjoyed looking at all the different decorations, chatting about the Christmas lights and doing a bit of early Christmas shopping. Thank you to our staff and volunteeers who accompanied us on the day.


Remembrance Day at Charlotte Straker House

By 11th November, 2019 News No Comments

Our residents commemorated Remembrance Day by making our very own handmade “poppy cascade” with some beautiful felt poppies, which now hangs in the dining room. We will be adding to it each Remembrance Day with poppies made by our residents.

Please don’t forget that we also have our “poppy bags” for sale for £5 in our office, with half of the price going towards the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
