The activities team went one step further with their festive activities and designed and created their very own grotto for the whole South Lodge community to enjoy. It was kitted out with a scenic wintery view out of the window, its own fireplace and Santa’s very own red leather chair for when he visited with his elves as part of our Christmas Fayre. The residents helped to create props and decorations for the grotto and it has been designed so that it can be folded away and recreated each year. The residents and their relatives thoroughly enjoyed visiting Santa in his grotto and had their photo taken with him. The grotto put a real smile on everyone’s face and will be sure to return every year.
