Residents at Crantock Lodge care home got an early surprise this Christmas, when Santa decided to pay a visit to their Christmas party!
Festivities were in full swing, with family, friends and staff invited to share high tea with the residents, when santa arrived to hand out presents to the residents.
The residential home in Porth, Newquay, is home to just eleven private residents, and prides itself on providing top notch care. Owner Peter Shaw said: “It’s not just children who enjoy seeing Father Christmas – our residents like to have fun and be entertained too!
“At Crantock Lodge there is a programme of activities throughout the year and especially at Christmas. We’ve had a show by Tickled Pink, a sing-a-long with duet Tula Rosa, craft making, carol singing and a nativity play by a local school, as well as the obligatory Christmas dinner of course!
“It’s lovely to see all of our staff here – including the ones who are off duty, and that demonstrates how much they really care about our residents. The support we get from the local community, from our staff, to the schools and other organisations like the Newquay Lions Club, to the local ingredients for our food, all helps us to enrich the lives of our residents, which is what it’s all about.”
