Waterfield hosts harvest festival
Waterfield House hosted its first annual Hadleigh Harvest Festival last month.
Staff and residents at Waterfield House were excited to host their first annual Hadleigh Harvest Festival last month.
The event was a celebration of harvest and Halloween in a way that brought the community together.
Residents, staff, their families and friends, and members of the area were all warmly welcomed to enjoy the day’s celebrations. The event was a huge success, with several games to play, including pumpkin putting, competitions such as dress the mummy competition, a teddy tombola and brilliant live music.
The festival was also host to an impressive number of stallholders, many of which were small businesses within the local community.
“It was lovely to see residents, relatives and staff truly being part of the community again after a couple of challenging years," says Amanda Thackery, home manager at Waterfield House. "We are finding new ways to live and work together in a very different way and all of us at Waterfield House are very much looking forward to the future together with our wonderful community.”
