Santa Claus Lands at Emerson Park
Dec 18,2017

  • Local children visit Santa Claus at Emerson Park
  • Winners and runners-up of Emerson Park’s Christmas card competition
  • Emerson Park donates to Hextable Primary School and Beams

Christmas came early for the children of Hextable Primary School and Beams charity last week when they visited Santa Claus at Emerson Park. This is Hextable’s new retirement village which opens officially in spring 2018 and includes 47 retirement apartments as well as a luxury 87-bedroom care home within it, Emerson Grange. Beams is a local charity that supports disabled children and their families.

Every child had the chance to speak to Santa in his magical grotto, created especially for the occasion by members of the Emerson Park team, General Manager Paul Hart and Resident Services Advisors Aadil Baig and Sam Bright. Each of the children, who had all been nice rather than naughty during the year, were thrilled to receive a special Christmas present from Santa, direct from the North Pole.

The fun didn’t stop there. The Emerson Park team also ran a Christmas card competition for the children who brought along the cards they had created at home. With so many wonderful entries, it was no surprise that they ended up with not one but four winners!
Naomi Akpomuje, Harry Davies, Avie Lainson and Charlotte Warren each carried off a £50 book token. Runners-up Frankie Hibbert, Alex Hills, Casey McDonnell, Aysha Meah, Ava Stanton and Maddie Vesey each received a £25 book token, and all of the other entrants received £10. Congratulations to all the young artists.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, Emerson Park also donated £200 to Hextable Primary School and £200 to Beams Charity.
We were delighted when Santa said he wanted to visit us,” said Paul Hart. “We’re not simply here to run Emerson Park. We want to put down roots and forge close relationships with nearby schools, churches, charities and other local organisations.”
Being several hundred years old and with retirement long overdue, Santa Claus took some time to look around Emerson Park before riding off on his sleigh. With its 47 luxury retirement apartments, residential care home and five star leisure facilities including a cinema, gym, hairdressing salon, lounge/bar and club room, Santa could well put Emerson Park on his own Christmas list!
