Profile: Oaklea, 15th Dec, 2020
This year we held a highly successful Christmas craft making competition across all our settings open to all customers as a group or individuals. It proved a great way to motivate and get busy in these challenging times and lets face it - just have some seasonal fun!
Here you can see Martin & David from our Balmoral House in Ferryhill working on their entry…
There was a really good response and the judges had hard decisions to make! The baton was passed across the Pennines several times from Oaklea Head of Care Stella Crennell and Deputy Head of Care Liz Lomas for Oaklea Director Sue Green to have the ultimate say….no pressure then Sue!
And as we got lots of entries across the north -so here’s a selection of some of the rest of our fab entries - Mary (“MLT” as she’s known to close friends!) in Spennymoor, Co Durham took a relaxed approach after her creative endeavours…
Pauline from Barnard Castle - she made a Reindeer….she became a Reindeer!
Emily from Riversiders with a cheery festive message for us all with her entry!
Window on our world: The team at 34 Wattsfield in Kendal even re created our new look ‘working behaviours’….
Well dressed: This was a “Proper Chrimbo” wreath display from The Furniture Warehouse at R2W
Here’s looking up at you -Exterior of The Furniture Warehouse
So here’s to next year…we’ll be back!
We should also put on record the legwork done by our employees and teams to make this happen - a special round of seasonal applause to Emma Rowley in Barnard Castle, Bev Hutchinson in Spennymoor, Alex Corrie-Williams in Kendal, Nichola Bainbridge in Barnard Castle, Karen Kidd in South Lakes and Sara Wellock at R2W…and many more too numerous to mention…we love ya!
