ACCOMMODATION & OUTREACH CHRISTMAS AT TREENDALE GARDENS Whilst we have been unable to have large gatherings at Treendale Gardens due to government restrictions, we did our best to celebrate in December, including a small Christmas party and other holiday activities. ‘Pin the beard on Santa’ was very popular! All the residents and respite Clients, as well as some family members, staff and volunteers, attended our annual pre-Christmas luncheon, with special guests from Perth – Marcus Stafford and Sue Shapland. Whilst our accommodation facility is currently at capacity, we often have vacancies in our homely respite facility as well as our wonderful 3-bedroom holiday unit. If you would like to hear more please contact me or Linda Kidd on 9725 9994 or email us at PAULA KENNEDY COORDINATOR – SUPPORT ACCOMMODATION, TREENDALE CHRISTMAS AT FERN RIVER Whilst it seems so long ago, we would like to share our Christmas event with you. It was a smaller affair than usual, but residents, families, and staff enjoyed a well-deserved Christmas celebration that finished off a very challenging 2020. Following the months of limited socialisation, social distancing and frequent monitoring of the COVID-19 status, the chance to relax and enjoy each other’s company for the evening was welcomed by all who attended. Our Christmas lights were enjoyed by the entire Wilson neighbourhood, with passers-by slowing down to look at the colourful display. The evening included a variety of delicious foods and treats, light refreshments, the traditional raffle and many prizes. The raffle raised just over 5 and will be spent on items that will benefit our residents. The highlight of the evening was the photo ‘big screen’ display of the residents and staff giving their own personal Christmas wishes in English and their native languages. The photos showcased the residents’ participation in various activities throughout the year, with some very funny moments captured on film, bringing laughter and tears to family and staff. Fern River Manager Danuta Figurska would like to thank the staff and residents who participated in, and contributed to, the evening which was a great success. Everyone is looking forward to Christmas 2021 and we are all wondering what we will be planning to take the celebrations to the next level! DANUTA FIGURSKA MANAGER – ACCOMMODATION, FERN RIVER 30
