Our Gingerbread House

As Festive seasons go, 2016/17’s certainly excelled all expectations here at Coombe Hill Manor. Having covered the home from head to toe in Festive decorations and home-made Christmassy craftwork, we set about the task of entering the legendary, dare I say, infamous NAPA; Sharing Lives: The Gingerbread House Challenge, having romped away with the title in 2015/16. With the expectation of winning two years in a row weighing heavily on our shoulders, Coombe Hill Manor’s Activities team set about motivating and encouraging Residents to get involved in the planning and execution of making a Gingerbread House to blow all others out of the waters! Our Knit & Natter sessions were littered with discussions about this year’s theme, what styles we might attempt, and most important of all, who gets to eat the whole thing when it’s finished. These chats would evolve more and more before we all convened in our Activities Room and the magic really started to happen! Residents were assigned different responsibilities and a real Dunkirk spirit began to unfold amongst them all
