Christmas Festivities at HillView
1 January 2018
After weeks of anticipation and months of planning HillView has just seen the completion of another successful year of Christmas parties.
The HillView Christmas parties are an important tradition with many of our residents not well enough to travel to celebrate Christmas with their families. The parties make it possible to get into the festive spirit with their loved ones.
In the lead up to the parties HillView was a buzz with excitement as our residents created decorations in craft classes with our lifestyle team.
Menus were written, invitations were sent, the trees were decorated and the garlands were hung, all in preparation for the festivities. A party was to be held on each floor, ground, level 1, 2 ,3 & Ashmore of course.
The celebrations began with the arrival of musicians to play Christmas carols, the tone was set for a magical celebration. Morning tea of Fruit Mince pies and Rumballs were served while residents and their guests got into the spirit of Christmas Then there was the much-anticipated arrival of the man in the big red suit and of course the sharing of Christmas gifts.
Residents and their guests were then shown to their beautifully decorated tables in preparation for the scrumptious feast lovingly prepared by the HillView catering team. Sparkling flowed, glasses clinked, chatter got louder, Entrée’s were served, then mains and dessert until everyone was feeling full and merry. The spirit of Christmas was well and truly alive at HillView.
