To mark this fantastic acheivement, we are holding a number of events throughout September to invite everybody in to share with us and celebrate the amazing people that have been a part of Woodleigh over the past 30 years, from Residents to Staff, Volunteers to Managers. We would love to see you there and join us.

Armistice Day is very important to us here at WoodleighCare. We will never forget the sacrifice that our friends, family and loved ones have made for us both at home and abroad.
We are very lucky to be based so close to Chesterfield Road where the Armistice Day parade will walk past us. We will be lining the street to join the parade as it passes us, and then returning to Woodleigh for a short service lead by our Chaplain Helen Curzon.
Everyone is welcome and we would love to have you join us in remembrance on this day.

As we approach the lead up to Christmas, we always enjoy welcoming everyone in to Woodleigh for our annual Christmas Fayre. It is always a very busy afternoon with plenty to see and do, including raffles, tombolas, cake stands, clothing, Christmas decorations and gifts and more.
These events help to raise money for the 'Friends of Woodleigh' charity which pays for activites, events and days out for the Resident's, so it would be wonderful to see you there as you have a fun afternoon and support our Residents.
