Christmas crafting at Ashby Court

Date: 3 December 2021

The festive season got off to a great start with a Christmas themed craft afternoon at one of our retirement schemes, Ashby Court, in Horsham.

Our very talented staff worked together with enthusiastic residents to create some wonderful baubles and cards. They also got to work knitting some famous Christmas characters, including Santa and a snowman.


The residents have had a difficult and quite isolating year, so it was lovely to see them out and socialising again. It was also wonderful to hear so many amazing stories from when the residents were younger, whilst enjoying a cuppa and some festive treats.


Carol, one of the residents who came along for the afternoon, said:

“We have had such a lovely afternoon chatting and gossiping!! It made my week. I have got some new tree decorations too. It would be lovely if we could do this more often, it means a lot to us to see new people and be free to chat about anything and everything. Thank you.”
