Residents at Southport Home Make Trip to Community Event and Visit Christmas Light Switch on
Residents at a Southport home had the opportunity to visit and see a Christmas Light Switch on ceremony.
A team of residents and staff members from MHA Connell Court made the short trip to Birkdale to see the Christmas Light Switch on ceremony
Staff members also received the assistance of some family members, and the event was enjoyed by all.
The event was organised and supported by independent businesses in the area.
Local traders set up their own stalls including a mulled wine and mince pie stall as well as plenty of others.
There was also some live music for visitors to enjoy as well as rides for the daredevils.
Jennifer McCulloch, admin manager said:
“It was a spontaneous trip, but one that the residents really enjoyed.
“One of the care assistants spotted what was happening and that’s how the idea came about.
“Elly, a senior care assistant then got on the case and started planning the event.
“Birkdale is less than 10 minutes away from us which meant even residents whose mobility isn’t the best could get into a wheelchair and attend.
“It’s always nice for residents to go and visit events such as this one as it enables them to stay connected with the community.
“We even had some residents who are not huge fans of going out making the trip and that was nice to see.”
