It is the season to be jolly and the staff from Nandebri Home Nursing were decked out in their Christmas gear when they welcomed their guests to the 2019 Christmas party.

Sandra Duncan welcomed the guests and thanked the staff for the fabulous effort that they had made towards the day.

She also thanked the many Narrabri and Wee Waa businesses which donated the prizes.

The Narrabri Primary School and Breeana Smith and Mae Harvey were thanked for entertaining the group.

Reverend Sam Smith said grace before the guests enjoyed a baked ham and turkey lunch with all the trimmings followed by Christmas pudding or pavlova.

Year two from Narrabri Public School sang Silent Night in both Kamilaroi language and English much to the delight of the guests.

During the meal Year 11 students Breeana Smith and Mae Harvey sang, and Mae played the keyboard.

After lunch and some more prizes, the Nandebri staff performed their version of The Macarena and Penny Morris sang a humorous song she had written about older people and some of their problems.

The final act of the day was when Jim Hoffman was given the honour of cutting the Christmas cake on behalf of the guests.

Mrs Duncan said, “We offer a large range of services which include clinical, rehabilitation, nursing, personal and respite care, transport and garden maintenance and today we have added decorating the hall, cooking a Christmas lunch and dancing on stage.

“This is an opportunity for those people who receive a service at home to come out and be surrounded by people they know and trust as well as interacting with people from Narrabri, Wee Waa and Boggabri.”

“Unfortunately, none of our clients from Barraba or Gunnedah were able to attend today,” she said.
