Christmas has most definitely arrived at Retirement Villages.
Every village has now held its official light switch on accompanied by mince pies, mulled wine and carols.
At Elmbridge Village, in Surrey, the village choir provided the tuneful entertainment while at Avonpark Village, near Bath it was local school children.
The morning after the decorations at Mayford Grange, in Surrey, were completed residents woke to a scattering of snow, completing the Christmas scene perfectly. Champagne accompanied the event at Thamesfield, in Henley-on-Thames while at Castle Village, in Hertfordshire, the reception area is now ablaze with pretty Christmas lights.
The coming weeks will see a host of festive events being enjoyed by residents and their guests with truffle making (and tasting of course), card decorating, carol concerts and even visits from Santa all on the calendar.
