November 2022: Wintery Weather at Derwent


Derwent Newsletter: November 2022

BRrrrr! It’s beginning to feel a lot like…winter! I think we can all agree that the wintery weather is finally here; the air is colder, frost is glistening and it’s starting to feel Christmassy. We have been very busy throughout November here at Derwent, with lots of events and activities for our residents to take part in; including showing our respects on Remembrance Day and cheering on the England boys for the start of the World Cup.

We are also collecting for our Christmas raffle, every year we go bigger and better than the year before and this year will be no different- so please keep your eyes peeled for raffle tickets!

Finally, we are delighted to share our “Make a Wish” scheme; where we will be asking residents what their one wish is and working hard to make them come true! So far, we have already granted four wishes and we aren’t stopping there! Follow our Facebook page @MariposaCareHomes to see daily updates and what other wonderful activities we get up to.

Stay well, wrap up warm and we hope to see you soon.
