Happy Christmas from Springhill Care Group  

on .

Across the Springhill Care Group we’ve been celebrating Christmas with a series of parties.


At Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, the celebrations included a gift to Save the Children.


Residents and visitors truly got into the spirit of Christmas during the home’s annual Christmas party, open to residents, family and friends.


This year as well as a visit by local musician Andy T, which was very well received, we held a raffle and Christmas jumper day in aid of Save the Children.


A group of family and friends even headed off around the home – specially decorated for the occasion – to sing carols for everyone.


At Springhill Care Home in Accrington, local singer Will Matthews entertained with Christmas classics and a few other golden oldies for everyone to sing along to.


There was also a special visit from Father Christmas himself to hand out a gift to each of our residents who were either at the party or in their rooms.


Springhill was also visited by children from St Mary’s School choir who spent time sharing their Christmas spirit, and by volunteers from local charity the Bahja Initiative who brought gifts.


Meanwhile, at Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale, entertainment was provided by popular local singer Tina Riley, who is a favourite at the home.


Residents, their family and friends had a fabulous afternoon full of Christmas cheer, laughter, singing and dancing.


After the Christmas party, Birch Green’s grand raffle was drawn.


We’d like to thank everyone who has helped get the festive season off to such a lovely start.


Centenary celebrations for Riversway’s Olive

on .

Riversway Nursing Home is helping to celebrate a very special birthday – resident Olive Probert turns 100.


Olive, who spent much of her life in the Barton Hill area of Bristol, was joined by family members including two of her nephews for a party at Riversway.


The celebration included a visit by the local Salvation Army band who played some musical numbers to mark the occasion – arranged by staff at the home.


Both Olive and her husband Walter – now deceased – both worked for the historic printing firm Mardon’s in Bristol. At one point the couple lived in a home very close to Riversway’s location.


Nephew David Watts, of Warmley near Bristol, said Olive, who has no children, was looking forward to the party.


He said: “She always says she doesn’t know where the years have gone, and we joke with her that she must have enjoyed them to have had such a long and happy life!”


To mark the occasion staff decorated the home with balloons and presented Olive with a bunch of flowers and a cake.

Christmas charity visit at Springhill Care Home

on .

Local Accrington charity group the Bahja Initiative visited Springhill Care Home for an amazing afternoon bringing bundles of goodies for our residents and staff to enjoy.


The Charter Street, Accrington, organisation, spent time chatting and visiting everyone in their rooms who were unable to attend. They also wrote Christmas cards for the residents as well.


The visit was arranged by Jamal Clarke, whose mum had stayed with us at Springhill Care Home earlier this year for a short period for respite. Jamal was keen to give back to Springhill for the care his mum received while she was with us.


She and her husband also wrote a lovely Christmas card wishing everyone well and a Happy New Year.


Thank you to all the volunteers who came and made a difference; Mohammad Bilal Younis, Sohail Asghar, Zameer Fazal, Abubaker Siddiq, Misbah Rashid, Irfan Abid, Arbaz Butt, Rahimah Hussain, Shabana Nazir.


The charity organise all sorts of events for the local community and the ‘feed the needy’ initiative which presents people with food parcels and feeds the homeless.


Springhill Care Home are looking to making the afternoon a monthly event in the new year.




Festive carol concert at Riversway Nursing Home

on .

Carol singing rang out along the corridors at Riversway Nursing Home at their annual resident, staff, family and friends get-together.


They were visited by the Westerly Winds adult wind band from Staple Hill in Bristol for a beautiful performance.


The band made sure everyone got a chance to enjoy the carols by moving around the home and stopping to play songs every few steps of the way with the team, including staff members, singing in areas including bedrooms and lounges.


Jan Wilkins, Riversway’s Director of Operations at Riversway, remembers a time when the get-together was much smaller with just a couple of members of staff making their way around the home singing and therefore it really was heart-warming to see so many of the team, residents and family members attending this years carol concert.
