People supported at Seaham View have been getting creative this festive season by designing eye-catching Christmas window displays.

Across the year, the service’s windows – which can be seen by passers-by – have been adorned with a few different themes.

During the first lockdown, the theme was Rainbows of Hope, and then there was an NHS Clap for Carers display. During Halloween, the window decorations turned spooky, before a poppy-filled D Day display went up.

But with Christmas coming up, the people supported got out their craft supplies to create windows packed with yuletide joy.

Service Manager Dhiraj Rijhwani said that everyone had a great time getting their Christmas crafting hats on.

Dhiraj said: “Our window displays have become the talk of Seaham, and the people we support love coming up with different pictures to draw as part of the Christmas theme.

“It was great fun to see everyone getting involved with picking colours and designs for their windows. Warren, one of the people we support, even got to work with the snow spray, which he loved.”

Having brought some much-needed cheer to the local community this year, Dhiraj said that the team want to continue decorating their windows for people walking past to enjoy.

Dhiraj added: “Who knows, the Seaham View display could rival the famous Fenwick Christmas windows soon!”
