Christmas fun at St George

St George Nursing Home in Bristol had a packed season of activities over the festive period, with a great range of Christmas-themed events.

Sue Smith, Activities Coordinator at St George, said: “Our Christmas at St George was fun-filled and very busy.” To see what she meant, you can find a rundown of all the different events and activities held in December below.

8th Dec – The Rob Dee Christmas Show

Rob kicked-off the Christmas music activities off with his festive show – which was fantastic fun! All the residents said how much they enjoyed the show, as Rob dressed up and bought costumes for everyone else to wear too.

10th Dec – Story telling with Spectrum

Spectrum are a group of local ladies who volunteer to come to St George to sing, read funny poems and tell amazing tales. Because the ladies do not charge for their performances, the home presented Spectrum with a donation for them to award to their favourite charity.

15th Dec – Yate Ukuleles

A group of Yate Ukuleles came to St George, we had a fun afternoon. Lin, partner of a resident at St George, and her friends entertained everyone in the home for the whole afternoon. The Yate Ukulele group are volunteer performers, but the home gave the musicians a donation for their favourite charity.

16th Dec – Christmas Tea and Mini Fair

St George held a German-style Christmas fair. There was a tombola, raffle, games and gift stands. The hospitality team in the home provided Christmas cake, for a ‘guess the weight’ competition, as well as gingerbread men and cupcakes which were sold at the event. All profits raised went towards the home’s Activities Fund, which helped make even more Christmas activities possible.

17th Dec – Church Service and Naomi

St Aiden’s Church came to St George and held their annual Christmas carol service. Both residents and members of the care team agreed that it was lovely, and everyone enjoyed singing along with (and listening to) the carols.

Naomi came to St George – dressed up in her Christmas outfit – and brought some fun singing and wheelchair dancing to the home.

18th Dec – Xmas Jumper Day and Doreen’s Keep-fit Class

All members of the care team supported Xmas Jumper Day by wearing colourful jumpers and festive T-shirts.

In the afternoon the home was visited by St George’s favourite and fun keep-fit lady, Doreen. Doreen put everyone through their paces, finishing the day with some well-deserved mince pies – which Doreen kindly made herself.

It was also the 96th birthday of a St George resident, Joan, so everyone had a cause for celebration as well.

21st Dec – Carmel Church Carol Service and Flower Arranging

Children from Carmel Church came and sang carols for residents at St George. Everyone appreciated the fantastic efforts of the singers, and a great time was had by all.

Local florist, Muriel, came to St George to show off her artistic flower arranging skills. Muriel made two lovely Xmas arrangements for the home during her visit.

23rd Dec – Frankie Johns

Frankie Johns is always lots of fun, and much loved at St George. He attended the home with his prop-box and led a great afternoon of singing and dancing, with lots of laughs as well.

24th Dec – Care Team Carol Service

Many members of the care team at St George came together to sing at the home’s annual lunchtime sing-a-long. The service was held after the residents had their lunch, and Christmas presents were distributed after the singing concluded.
