We have a real cottage industry here at Romans. Our residents have been making Christmas gifts to sell. They have been knitting Christmas decorations for the tree, putting cookie mix in jars and producing the famous hot chocolate cones with marshmallows, sweets and candy cane. All proceeds will go towards providing further activities for residents to participate in.knitted-christmas-decorations

Our residents asked Dawn if they could make their own crackers and table decorations for Christmas. It was such a satisfying task decorating the pots to hold the Christmas cactus plants on the meal tables.christmas-pots

What fun we all had on 10th & 11th December, our designated Christmas Jumper Days! Staff and residents wore their Christmas jumpers, just for fun. Doughnuts and cookies were provided and staff held an impromptu sing-along with residents playing musical instruments.christmas-jumper-daychristmas-jumper-day-singalong
