Christmas fair held at Oak lodge care home

Everyone had a wonderful time at the Christmas fair held at Oak lodge care home. The Mayor of Chard, Councillor Dave Bulmer, popped along to wish everyone a merry Christmas and even visited Father Christmas for a few presents.

A spokesperson for the care home said ‘Residents and guests enjoyed a cup of tea and a slice of cake and played the tombola, raffle and other games such as guess the weight of the cake and guess the name of the pug. The children enjoyed meeting Father Christmas in his magical grotto and received a present from Santa and his elf. Overall we raised £180 for the residents fund. Thank you to everyone who came and supported the fair, and special thanks to Claire and Barry Gibbs for their help with the grotto.’
