Burgess Hill Youth Young Carers enjoyed a lovely Christmas themed tea party at Abbeyfield Nursing Home on Friday 22 December. The event was an enjoyable experience for all involved and follows recent television themed programmes promoting intergenerational activities. The Young Carers were greeted at the home and enjoyed Frozen themed craft activities with the residents popping in. Then they were welcomed into the large dining area where they were introduced to Frozen characters, who were staff dressed up for the occasion. A trip out to Santa’s Grotto in the beautiful snow filled garden (courtesy of the homes premises team!) to visit the Elves to receive beautiful homemade gifts for each child was a pure pleasure to see. They all came back in for a homemade tea party with the residents of the home present. The afternoon was completed with some Christmas themed reading including “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. This was a magical afternoon for the Young Carers of Burgess Hill and big thanks to Abbeyfield Residential Home, particularly Heather Rogers, for the hard work gone into making this a most memorable experience for us all. Burgess Hill Youth holds a programme of activities supported by Burgess Hill Town Council.
