Gifts and cards flooded into a local care home recently to celebrate the 100th birthday of one of their residents…
Christmas shoppers and local families enjoyed a festive afternoon at Buckshaw Retirement Village, Chorley, on Saturday November 30th.
The annual Christmas shopping experience included over a dozen stalls by a range of local suppliers; including locally made cheeses, fresh cakes and handmade crafts, festive activities and a visit from Santa in his grotto.
The chefs and catering manager Gary Williams created a luxury festive menu for the day, which included traditional mince pies and mulled wine.
Julie McGlough, Health & Wellbeing Manager at Buckshaw, said: “The Christmas fete is always a fantastic event at Buckshaw. It is the perfect opportunity to invite in the entire community, local schools and small businesses into the village.
“We welcome some of the best small businesses from the area to showcase their fantastic products at the event. It is always a very popular event so we would advise those who would like to come to get here early and enjoy the festive activities we have planned.”
Julie continued: “The residents have a fantastic time preparing to welcome everyone into the retirement village; including helping to decorate the many Christmas trees throughout the building and creating crafts to sell at the Christmas fete.”
