Dining room full with people sat eating and balloons tied to tables.

Dorset House celebrated its annual family Christmas meal with unparalleled success, bringing together residents, friends, and family for an afternoon of joy, community spirit, and festive cheer.

As guests were welcomed into the event, they were met with a touch of sophistication, being greeted at the door with delightful pink prosecco. The afternoon unfolded with guests seated at beautifully adorned tables, setting the tone for a delightful afternoon ahead. 
The culinary journey began with a mouth-watering Christmas meal expertly crafted by the Catering Team, including all the trimmings. Home Manager Karen, Administrator Jill, and Quality Assurance Officer Tracy played gracious hosts, serving drinks as guests were serenaded by the enchanting melodies of Johnny the Singer, whose festive melodies added an extra layer of magic to the event. 
Dorset House was honoured to host a special guest, Kate Fellows, the esteemed Mayor of Droitwich. Mayor Fellows opened the event with a delightful speech, underscoring the importance of community, thanks, and the spirit of the season.
The dining areas were transformed with stunning blue, red and gold decorations, curated to compliment the already gorgeous dining room interior. The ambiance was nothing short of enchanting, providing the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of festivities.
The event witnessed a fantastic turnout, a testament to the strong sense of togetherness at Dorset House. The success of the celebration would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the Dorset House staff, who ensured every detail was executed to perfection.
A family member expressed their gratitude, stating, "Many thanks for a really superb lunch. It was great fun! The food was exceptional, and mass catering is not easy, but everything was well presented with many little extra touches. All the staff worked very hard to ensure we were well looked after, and they seemed to be having fun too."
Dorset House eagerly anticipates the continuation of its tradition, hosting memorable events that cultivate a sense of community and shared joy.
