St Ronans News Letter January 17

Trixie’s Blog

I do hope you have all had a happy and fun loving Christmas without being laid low with any bugs!

Activities Our Christmas time at St Ronans was great fun and the weeks leading up to ~ with great entertainers ~ snakes and fluffy bunnies etc., much enjoyed. Many thanks to all the Relatives and friends that have joined in with our activities all through December with their loved ones ~ it is wonderful for us all to see so many happy faces coming together and enjoying our shows. The Salvation Army starting us off on the 4th December with their marvellous band carols and prayers for us all made a magical start to our Christmas time and we all felt a deep spiritual connection. We now have a lovely Communion Group for when Bob comes in, our dear retired vicar from St Simons and Wendy still comes in regularly to do individual blessings. We so appreciate their time, thoughts and prayers.

Feedback Please continue to write feedback forms and pop them into Matron’s Box at reception.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year and 2017~ please continue to come and support us joining in with as many things as possible.

 Hugest thanks for your continual support, kindness and good cheer ~ it means so much to us all. With all love, hugs and blessings, Trixie xxx
