During the most wonderful time of the year, our residents and staff at RFBI Holt Masonic Village have been enjoying the lights and festivities. Every year our staff go above and beyond to make the festive season special for all within the village.

This year, we took our residents out on two bus trips to see the Christmas lights displayed around the local neighbourhoods. A favourite annual activity, this year the residents of Canberra really turned it on to light up the night for the festive season. It was an experience we all enjoyed.

Our team also held our annual pre-Christmas, Christmas lunch – a chance for everyone to come together, eat delicious food and bask in the festive cheer. Our cooks prepared a wonderful meal of tasty potato bake, vegetables, turkey, ham, Christmas pudding and custard, and we popped some bubbles to celebrate the special occasion.

Even Santa made an appearance at our lunch and our regular village entertainer performed our favourite Christmas carols on the piano.

We know how difficult this year has been for our residents and our team due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Spreading love and joy over the festive season was especially important in 2021. Our team even arranged a secret Santa for everyone this year to make everyone feel that little bit more special.

Thank you to all our team for working so hard to make the end of 2021 such a standout!
