Christmas German Market
I don’t think I have ever seen Highwell House look so beautiful .What a fabulous evening! My vision was a magical German Christmas Market and that is exactly what we got.I have so many people to thank for last night, and so many people to be grateful for I hardly know where to start. Sarah for helping to construct the stalls in the freezing wind and rain, and for shopping all things Bavarian. To Chris for supporting with construction, Dawn and Becky for all the wonderful crafts and bakes. Dawn, thank you for always running with my ideas so beautifully. Ellie for baking amazing biscuits and with Lucy and Harry selling raffle tickets. Cat and Jamie for BBQ’ing the Bratwurst all night, Mel for roasting chestnuts, Beverley for manning the bar so brilliantly, and thank you to the kids for serving Hot Chocolates! Janet for stepping up, above and beyond as always, baking mince pies, brewing the mulled wine and cider, and keeping a constant supply of everything we needed all night. Thank you to the musicians Helen and Annie, and thank you to Alan for helping park the cars safely. Thank you to the team on shift for helping everything run so smoothly, I know the residents appreciated your kindness, they loved it .Thank you to everyone who donated to the raffle and bought tickets, and thank you to all our wonderful families and friends for coming along and sharing this fabulous evening with us.My final and biggest thank you has to go to Les. I don’t have enough words to describe how grateful I am to you. Everything you do is for our residents, you are selfless, kind, and the greatest wingman I could wish for, thank you from the bottom of my heart .
