West Midlands Learning Campus do Xmas in Style

Christmas tree festival

Staff, residents and parents/carers have enjoyed a November and December full of fabulous Christmas activities.

At the end of November they were invited to support St Peter’s tree appeal at the local church by decorating their own tree as part of a display of over 60 trees. Our tree was named ‘Santa Clause’ the Festival took part over the first weekend in December and at the end we took our tree back to decorate reception so everyone had the opportunity to enjoy it. Special thanks go to David Symons, Art Facilitator and the residents of Winslow Court and Cedar Lodge for their time and effort in creating some truly beautiful tree decorations.

In December the third West Midlands Learning Campus Christmas Fayre took place. The Mayor and Mayoress of Bromyard joined Parents, Residents, locals and Santa for a fabulous morning. Thank you to the learning support staff who helped young people to make the items for sale. Thank you to Donna and Chloe in the kitchen for producing fabulous turkey cobs and to Dave and Amber for serving during the morning. Special thanks for Neil and Connor for their help with Santa!

The festivities continued with a Christmas meal for residents of adult homes and their families. Thank you to everyone who helped transform the rugby club. Thank you to Kamilla, Trudi, Leah, Julia and Martin for serving the meal. A truly lovely evening.

Parents of a resident sent an email to Martin Carter, Head of Rowden House and the Herefordshire Adult Homes, with the following message….” We wanted to email you to thank all the staff for a marvellous Christmas dinner at Bromyard Rugby Club. The atmosphere was really Christmassy! It was a great venue for it and nice to see all the houses together. We had a wonderful time, we were some of the last to leave! Debbie, Julia and Trudi worked very hard to make the evening memorable. Again, many thanks to you all for a wonderful time. I hope you will keep using this venue. Happy Christmas!”
