Residents of Rosewell House Extra Care Housing Scheme in Tonbridge hosted their annual Christmas Fete on Saturday 16th November, inviting family and friends to get into the seasonal spirit.

With Christmas creeping up on us, residents of the Tudeley Lane scheme invited their friends and family to get ahead on some early Christmas shopping at their festive fete.

Housed in the restaurant, shoppers were invited to browse a variety of stalls, including a tombola, bottle stall, clothes stall and some lovely handmade Christmas cards. There was also a raffle with some beautiful festive hampers up for grabs. After they had shopped until they dropped, guests warmed up with a cuppa.

In total, the fete raised £240, which the residents hope to contribute to a group outing in the summer.

Jackie Little, Housing Officer at Rosewell House said: “Our first Christmas fete last year was a real success, so we decided to make it an annual event.

“The residents had great fun running the event, together with the support of the housing staff and the success of the event is a real testimony of how our community here has really developed, how they support each other and work together.”
