Our staff and residents have had a lot of fun creating a gingerbread house recently, for another competition against our other 10 sister Canford Healthcare homes.

Here at Willows we didn’t just make a house – we got really creative and added in people, trees, Santa’s sleigh complete with reindeer and even some snow.

Over the last few days we’ve been kneading gingerbread dough, rolling, icing, piping and arranging the pieces. We’ve probably eaten as many sweets as we’ve used for decoration – but that’s all part of the fun. And the real icing on the (gingerbread) cake is that the judges LOVED our entry and declared it the winner.

So a huge well done to residents and staff and now we’re all looking forward to tucking in!
