‘Festive Cheer’ and Christmas Carols at Mill Green Lodge, Witham

Retiree Elaine Bell received a Christmas gift to remember when she was selected as guest of honour at Churchill Retirement Living’s recent Festive Cheer event at Mill Green Lodge in Witham.

Elaine was nominated as a ‘Festive VIP’ by Colleagues at the development who felt that she deserved a treat this Christmas. The event on Thursday 7th December included beautiful decorations, festive food and drink, and Christmas Carols performed by pupils from the local Howbridge CofE Junior School Choir.

Churchill’s ‘Festive Cheer’ initiative had asked people up and down the country to nominate someone who deserved to be rewarded for their commitment to volunteering or charity work this year, or someone who is lonely or has faced some hard times, or simply a loved one who deserves to be spoiled this Christmas. Unfortunately Elaine was unable to attend the event in person, but she will be presented with her festive hamper and £100 M&S voucher at a later date.

Churchill’s Marketing Manager Tunji Quadri said: “Our Festive Cheer events were designed to spread some seasonal magic, and we’re delighted to have done that here in Witham.”  

Churchill provides purpose-built one and two bedroom privately-owned apartments for the over 60s, set amongst attractive landscaped gardens. All developments come with an Owners’ Lounge for events and socialising, a Guest Suite where family and friends can stay, a Lodge Manager, free parking, secure camera entry and a 24-hour call centre support system.
