Harvest Festival has become a regular feature in the Meridian Care Home calendar as it allows us to open our doors and welcome our community into our home. A number of our Residents find it increasingly more difficult to access the community due to physical frailty so this event enables us to bring the community to them.
Amongst the invitees to Harvest Festival are children and teachers from local primary schools, members of key local community groups, residents who live locally in sheltered housing schemes and people that have enquired about care in our homes over recent months.
- Celebrations to mark the harvest will include;
- Harvest themed activities
- Craft displays
- Meet new friends from the community
- Distribution of our harvest collection to elderly neighbours
- Fundraising activities for The Silver Line
This year’s Harvest Festival is in support of “The Silver Line” a free confidential helpline providing information, companionship and advice to older people. They also offer fantastic volunteer and pen-pal services to help them relationships outside of the home. We will be celebrating the harvest with an array of activities and food collections.
Building ongoing links with community groups remains important to our Residents; we hold regular coffee mornings which welcome in the community; so if you aren’t able to join our Harvest Festival we would welcome you to attend.
We really hope that you can come along and join us in our celebrations and make the day a real community event!
