A similar event is planned for families in the local community – Christmas Cracker – book your places now!

HPC Staff and a large team of very willing helpers, will also be leading Carol Services in local care homes, so that residents and staff can enjoy a Christmas Carol service even when they are unable to get out and about to local services – it’s also an opportuntiy for residents to invite their famlies & friends along to celebrate Christmas together.
