Holiday at Home
Over the last few years we have invited guests to a themed Holiday at Home, based in Highfield Church but, with the wonderful creativity of an enthusiastic team, transformed the venue into scenes from Paris, transported guests to the delights of Italy, Greece and Turkey, whilst enjoying the luxury of a cruise and this year whizzed everyone away on the ‘Highfield Railways’ to Scotland, where the ‘Highlands and Islands’ were experienced, along with Scottish Dancing, entertainment from local schools, talks, games and of course a Haggis- not forgetting a wee dram!
These are great opportunities for those who are older in our community to come together for a ‘Holiday at Home’, an opportunity in the words of one lady who attended, ‘to have a holiday when you can’t get away for one yourself’. Social isolation is an increasing challenge for all our society, but especially for those who are older, when social networks diminish due to bereavement, physical frailty and a disconnect from families who so often live at a distance. Holding a Holiday at Home is one way to bring older members of our community together for a time of friendship and fun, over themed activities.

Not only do these events bring the generations together, but they also provide a great opportunity for the community to work together, building networks for the future. Over the years, local Care Homes, Ice-Cream Parlours, Schools, Supermarkets, the Saints Foundation, Music Groups and others have joined us to make this venture so successful.
