Deck the halls at Kippington

We had a very busy December at Kippington in Sevenoaks.

Everyone who enjoys celebrating Christmas, likes to get the decorations and a Christmas tree up. Kippington residents started the month making our own Christmas cards and decorations. We all enjoyed some craft sessions designing and making the cards, we had fun (and got very sticky) applying all sorts of glittery substances and shapes to these cards. This is all about spending time together, feeling included, and enjoying the good company at the home, these activities simply bring joy and helps residents enjoy the season.

We also decorated the halls and rooms of Kippington for the festive season. We’ve had to invest in a couple of new sets of lights this year, but it was been worth the effort!

We have also enjoyed lots of singalongs and music at Kippington over the festive season. The care team and residents all joined together to sing some rousing Christmas carols and songs and we also had a visit from Hannah who entertained us one afternoon, complete with a jolly Christmas Elf outfit, she led us all in singalong songs known to many whilst playing the keyboard.

We held the Kippington Christmas Fair and Grand Raffle Draw with home-grown entertainment provided by Kippington’s own Activities Team, fun was had by all, and thanks to the generosity of our Staff and Visitors, we managed to raise £157, which will go towards worthy activity equipment for the residents. Several small hampers of goods formed the bulk of the prizes this year. This idea appeared to go down well, so will probably be repeated next year.

But that’s not all! We also welcomed back our favourite duo UNIQUE for their Fun-Filled Christmas show featuring many a familiar seasonal number, lots of laughs, and close audience interaction and enjoyed Carols with singers from the Church of St.Mary Kippington, and a fun Christmas Bingo session!

We hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed Christmas and the New Year!

Kippington provides residential and nursing care in a beautiful converted Victorian building for up to 51 elderly people.
