We have been very busy at Sunnybank lately. Here is a roundup of all the festive things we've enjoyed.
Ignite at Polesden Lacey Trip
On Sunday 6th November 2022, a large group of us went to Polesden Lacey in Bookham for their Annual ‘Ignite’ Light Trail Event. We split up into smaller groups, looked at the lights and some of us got some food & drinks halfway. There was more stuff for us to look at this year including scenes on Fairy Tales and a Giant Chess Board scene.
Christmas Movies with Mates
From Monday 21st November, we had our weekly Movies with Mates Club on Zoom where we watched Christmas films (on the 21st November, we watched The Muppets Christmas Carol, on the 28th November, we watched Beauty and the Beast – the Enchanted Christmas, on the 5th December we watched Home Alone and then last week (12th December), we watched Noelle) and everyone really enjoyed the films

Epsom Christmas Light Switch-On
On Sunday 27th November, a small group of us braved the wet weather and went to the Epsom Winter Family Festival & Christmas Light Switch-On in Epsom Marketplace! We had a stall where we did a Santa’s Sock Tombola and managed to raise lots of money and met some interesting people (including a few magical mischievous elves!)
