The Hermitage had its very own Elf Day in December. The staff at the Hermitage were very good sports and dressed as elves for the day, which the ladies and visitors to the home found most amusing. The ladies played ‘Pin the Ears on the Elf ‘and Activities Co-ordinator Sue Woodward had to call time on the game as the competitiveness was strong in some of the ladies as there was bit of cheating was going on! The Hermitage would like to add that no elves were harmed during the playing of any games. After seeing an appeal on Facebook from Nobles Hospital on the Isle of Man for people who would be having a lonely Christmas and had no family to visit them in hospital, the ladies wanted to send a little Christmas cheer across the Irish Sea. The ladies sent them handmade Christmas cards, wrote them a letter and sent a picture of their day with the elves.
