Timken Grange care home kicked off month of festivities with Christmas market
Timken Grange Care Home in South Duston started the month of festivities with a Christmas market on Sunday December 3. The event signalled the start of a busy month for everyone at the home.
It featured 25 local stallholders, two food vendors, Christmas ponies, live entertainment and a Christmas grotto complete with a professional photographer.
A range of planned trips to local attractions include visits to Welford Christmas Tree Farm on 19 December which has reindeers, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on 12 December, the Bell Plantation Garden Centre in Towcester on 14 December and Beckworth Emporium in Mears Ashby on 18 December. Both the latter are famed for their impressive Christmas displays.
More locally, residents from Timken Grange are attending a school nativity play and Christmas market put on by Millway Primary School and pantos put on by local theatre group Duston Players.
The Brownies will be visiting the home to do Christmas crafts and there will also be a special Christmas service given at the home by Reverend Mandy.
Other events feature live entertainment including a pianist, festive baking and craft sessions, presentations on traditional festive figures like St Nicholas and there will also be a festive theme to regular events like coffee mornings, spa sessions and bingo.

We recognise that Christmas is a very special time of year for everyone associated with our home and we feel we have developed a really full programme of festive events for everyone here to enjoy.
