Huge congratulations must go to Joan Spicer and her staff team at Ashfield House in Raunds who organisied a Winter Wonderland Market.
The market/fete was held to welcome the festive season offering residents and their families the chance to stock up on goodies for the fast approaching festive season. Staff & residents dressed for the occasion and the street area had an array of stalls from festive chocolates, tombolas to a Christmas hamper raffle, guess the snowman’s name, sales of jams & preserves (labels made by residents) and cakes and other goodies. There were also some local shopkeepers who brought in Christmas cards & paper to sell to residents and their families plus jewellery and books etc.
And of course, a winter wonderland wouldn’t be complete without Santa in his grotto which was set up in the Garden room – courtesy of Steve, the handyman.
In all the evening was a great success, and raised over £900 for the homes amenities fund. The local paper also popped in to cover the event in the press.
Very well done Joan, your staff team are a credit to your excellent management skills.
