DROITWICH’S new Woodland View Care Home is holding some festive events which are open to the public in the run up to Christmas.
Everyone is welcome to go along to the Christmas Market and Craft Fair from 3pm to 7pm on December 14.
It will feature vintage clothing, a retro photo booth, stalls selling creative and hand-made craft items and ‘winter warmer’ mulled wine.

A festive extravaganza with a Caribbean twist will take place at the home between 10am and 5pm on Christmas Eve.
The event – offering Caribbean winter spice on what will be a cold winter’s day – will celebrate diversity and inclusion.
It will begin with a traditional Caribbean breakfast and authentic street food will be available for lunch and dinner.
A steel band will delight those who go along with Caribbean Christmas songs before the day is rounded off with a fruity Jamaican spiced mulled wine.

People wanting to attend need to book free places by messaging Woodland View via its Facebook page here.
The home is also holding its own Woodland View Christmas Card Competition which it is hoping local schools and their pupils will enter.
There is a £50 voucher up for grabs for the best card which will be printed and used as the care home’s 2021 Christmas card.
Entries must be sent – along with the pupil’s name and school – to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline of 10pm on December 14.
The winner will be announced on December 16 on the Woodland View social media pages.

Drew Star, the front of house manager at Woodland View which is on the Redrow estate down Pulley Lane, said: “Our ethos is all about involving the local community in our events, providing entertainments and supporting local businesses by souring locally only for our supplies.
“Residential care isn’t just about the stereotypical ‘Care Home’ ethos, it’s about bringing our valued elderly community together with all ages to add value to the lives of the people of Droitwich and it’s surrounding areas.”
The home, which offers a range of facilities, services and support, has now been open for almost two months.
Drew added: “We welcome everyone from Droitwich to come and be nosey, join our Facebook page where you can see all the activities and events we are hosting – not just for our residents but also for the community.”
