December 2021: Stepping into Christmas at Sovereign Lodge


Sovereign Lodge Newsletter: December Edition

Welcome to our December newsletter, Christmas is just around the corner and we have a lot to look forward to over the next month! To name but a few of the exciting events we have coming up , we’ll have live entertainment from our favourite Elvis tribute act, James Fox and the children from the Co-op Sure Start will also be calling by to sing some of our  favourite carols!

You may have seen our table in reception on the Sycamore Unit full with goodies, this is for our annual Christmas Raffle with proceeds going into the resident’s fund which pays for the activity equipment and entertainers throughout the year. A strip of 5 tickets can be purchased for just £1 and the prizes range from a Amazon Fire tablet to alcohol and chocolates so you could win yourself an early Christmas present. See Ralph, Pauline or Teresa to find out more. 

We’re also excited to be launching Oomph! our brand new activities portal which will bring us a host of amazing activities and trips away each month – we’ll be releasing more information about this soon so keep your eyes peeled!

As always thank you for your patience throughout the past year and we hope you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year. See you soon. 

What's happening in December? I hear you cry...

Along with our usual daily activities, we also have some special things planned throughout December, including:

We’ll also be spending time thinking back to what Christmas was like when we were younger, so start thinking about your favourite festive traditions!
