News and Events News Tanner's Close Christmas Lunch Tanner's Close is known for the great food they serve for events and parties and last Friday was no different, Christmas lunch was served with a delicious twist. For the starter there was a choice of a creamy prawn cocktail or a serving of crispy potato wedges and for the main course we each had a platter of beef (which was extremely delicious and cooked by Marion herself!), ham, a sausage roll, quiche, salad and a pork pie. Residents quickly polished off their yummy deserts, which was a strawberry gateau. Rita and Marion's daughter, Laura kindly helped with the preparation, cooking, serving and tidying up for the day which lead to a smooth service and everyone getting each course on time. Following the lunch, Marion announced the winners of the Christmas raffle, residents chose their gift from choices such as body & hair wash, a small hamper, a fold-able wooden chess board with pieces and more. Once all the residents had got their gift and sat back in their seat, the lovely Tanner's Close choir sang a selection of wonderful Christmas songs to finish off the day. Marion always puts a lot of effort into the functions she puts on for residents so we'd like to thanks her, Rita and Laura for another successful Christmas lunch!
