From singing Brownies to Santa visiting the Christmas Fair, trips out and much more there’s been an activity to cater to everyone’s taste at Northlea Court in Cramlington.

Sandra Smith, Home Manger, said: “The residents have loved getting festive this month. They really enjoyed the carol concert performed by the Brownies. Seeing Santa and double checking they weren’t on his naughty list was a great way to prepare them for Christmas day.
