Halesowen Golf Range have kindly donated a beautiful Christmas tree to Halas Homes and it has really put everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Thank you to Natalie and the staff for such a kind and generous donation. Residents think it is beautiful and love to see the lights shining in the evenings.
A group from The Meeting place have been to see ‘Spectre’ followed by a pub lunch
A visit to Webb’s, at Hagley, for their spooky show full of Halloween themed acts. With an entirely human cast performing aerial acts, juggling feats, balancing acts and some crazy clown capers, this fang-tastic, spine-shivering show was great fun to watch.
It may be winter but we have been horse riding and we also give the horses some hay and a brush down, which they enjoy.
We are back on the golf range practising both indoors and out at Halesowen Golf Club.
Regular rowing sessions have included helping in the sponsored rowathon at Dudley Rowing Club.
Sing & Sign
This Sunday we will be performing at the Birmingham Town Hall for their Celebrating Carers at Christmas on Sunday 13th December. Tickets are £6.50 each and are available either online via the Symphony Hall website or in person at Birmingham Town Hall.
We will also be singing and signing Christmas songs in the Halesowen Cornbow on Wednesday 16th December, 11.00am until 12.30pm.
We made beautiful poppies in the Day Centre. Thank you to every one who brought a poppy from us. We raised £210.38 for the Royal British Legion. We also handcrafted a wreath which was laid at the Cenotaph outside St Johns Church in Halesowen on Remembrance Sunday.
Performance with Hypa Dance
Halas Homes Dance Unity performed at the Dormston School as part of the HYPA Dance Show. Below is a response from one of the audience.
It was a wonderful show and kept me transfixed to the stage.
The finale was truly magical, bringing a tear to my eye. All the dancers came together to perform sing and sign. I was very proud not only of my daughter, but also Dance Unity. Well done to everyone.”
The summer sunshine has disappeared but we carry on with our gardening. We continue to look after geraniums which are to be re-used and planted for Halesowen in Bloom and we have some winter cabbage growing. We have been clearing the allotment for next spring.
The residents put this pot together a few weeks ago; the violets have developed very well. Hope the bulbs develop in the spring too.

We supported Children in Need on Friday 13th November by having a pyjama day along with a disco and a hunt Pudsey. Thank you to everyone who supported the day.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our Christmas Fayre a success. We raised £280.50 which is fantastic and really helps to support activities.
