A busy Christmas at St Columba’s!
Everyone had a great time over the festive period. Staff, residents and relatives enjoyed our Xmas Fayre on 7th Dec which raised over £300 for the comfort fund. We were all entertained throughout the two Xmas parties and Hogmanay by Bob the Music Man, who got everyone up dancing. Santa visited, with presents for the residents and kids who visited.
Halloween has been in full swing in St Columba’s recently. Residents and staff enjoyed decorating the home with scary decorations as you can see. Bob the music man entertained residents, staff and visitors at our Halloween party and everyone had fun singing, dancing and duckin’ for apples.
Priority Staff member Susan Scott has retired after 19 years in St Columba’s Care Home. Susan started work in the home as a care assistant, then progressed to Senior Care assistant and remained a valuable member of the care team for many years. Latterly, Susan decided to work in the laundry until her retirement. A surprise retirement party was organised for Susan by staff who presented her with flowers, wine and vouchers. All staff enjoyed saying farewell to Susan over a buffet and drinks in the home. Susan will be greatly missed but we all wish her all the best for the future!
