Buckshaw Retirement Village gets in the festive spirit
Shoppers and local families started the festive season with a Christmas afternoon event at Buckshaw Retirement Village.
The annual extravaganza included more than a dozen stalls by a range of local suppliers; including locally made cheeses, fresh cakes and handmade crafts, festive activities and a visit from Santa in his grotto.
“We welcome some of the best small businesses from the area to showcase their fantastic products at the event. It is always a very popular event.
“The residents had a fantastic time preparing to welcome everyone into the retirement village; including helping to decorate the many Christmas trees throughout the building and creating crafts to sell at the Christmas fete.”
“Through working with our local community church from Midge Hall, a knit and natter group now meets once a week at the village, and the group have been using their time to create a range of handmade gifts which were sold at the fete.
