Rocking out at Birch Green

Recently we were entertained by the Chorley, Wigan, West Derby and St Helens Musical Rock Choir.

 

The choir, featuring the brilliant Laura on the keyboard, performed for us on both our floors, and a fabulous afternoon was had by all our residents.

 

There really was nothing better than a good old sing-along on a snowy afternoon.

Christmas concert for Birch Green

Our residents were visited recently by one of our local primary schools, Dalton St Michaels.

 

The children from Dalton St Michaels frequently visit us throughout the year, and for this most recent visit they performed their Christmas programme for us.

 

The residents loved seeing them return, and afterwards had a catchup with the children over a cup of juice, while listening to excited tales of Christmas and the upcoming visit from Santa.

Christmas Market Success at Birch Green

Birch Green Care Home opened its doors for the annual Christmas Market.

 

The afternoon event saw plenty of visitors heading to Birch Green, eager to find one of the fabulous bargain’s for sale. The market featured a sweet stall and craft stall full of handmade goods crafted by the staff and residents themselves.

 

Younger visitors were busy writing their letters to Santa while mums and dads enjoyed a mince pie with hot chocolate or mulled wine.

 

A fantastic Christmas cake was subject to a hotly-contested competition to guess the weight – 12lb 2oz was the winning amount.

 

Our activities team would like to thank everyone who came along on the day and showed their support, and all the helpers who gave up their day off. Thank you so much, your continued support is fantastic, and much-appreciated.

Elf day at Birch Green

Staff at Birch Green Care Home released their ‘inner elf’ recently to support charity.

 

Elf costumes were the order of the day for the staff team who were supporting the Alzheimer’s Society.

 

The good cause held a national Elf Day to raise awareness and we were only too happy to get involved.


 

Christmas shopping trip

A group from Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale headed out for an early Christmas shopping trip.

 

The trip, to Oswaldtwistle Mills – a favourite destination for many of our residents – saw our ladies purchasing a few new outfits for Christmas, while our gentlemen Royce and Bill took a look at the various Christmas displays.

 

After we were done, we all sat down together for a fish and chip lunch before returning to Birch Green on the coach with a good old sing-song.
