A care home in St Ives hosted a special Christmas party for local children to help spread some festive cheer.
Residents at Care UK’s Field Lodge, on London Road, were joined by the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of residents and the team for a fun-packed day of festivities.
The children, aged between four and 11-years-old, helped get the residents into the festive spirit, with themed games, crafts and activities.
The residents and their guests were joined by a Christmas elf who wowed the group with her balloon modeling, and everyone had lots of fun playing ‘pin the tail on the reindeer’.
Later, the residents shared their stories and memories of Christmas with the children and tucked into some festive treats, prepared specially by the care home’s chef.

“We regularly host inter generational activities here at Field Lodge, and it’s always so wonderful to see how the residents’ faces light up when the children are around, and watch some wonderful relationships form.
