This afternoon we shared together in our Harvest Festival, led by our Chaplain, Helen Curzon. We had readings from residents, staff and some special visitors as well, followed by some hymns led by our choirs pianist Sally and our close friends. The harvest festival is one that we have celebrated for a number of years at Woodleigh, as we think it is so important to continue to be contributing to the Mansfield Community and helping those who need us the most.
At the end of the celebrations we made a blessings tree, where we all wrote on a leaf the things that we count as a blessing, and this has been displayed on our wall in the chapel lounge. We have a lot to be thankful for here at Woodleigh, especially the community that we have within the home.
