It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas

gingerbread men

There's nothing quite like home-made treats at Christmas and Rachel, who lives in our Alan Shearer Specialist residential home, couldn't wait to whip up some of her festive favourites.

With the support of our recreation assistant, Heather, the kitchen was soon smelling of ginger and spice as a tasty dough was shaped into gingerbread men, stars and Christmas tree biscuits.

“The smell of the biscuits had everyone's mouth watering,” said Heather, “but we kept them waiting while they were lovingly hand finished with icing and sweets.”

If they tasted as good as they look, it was well worth the wait!
