Thank you to Anna and Tracy for all their hard work making sure the owners were topped up and comfortable. Our surprise entertainment went down a treat; this is the first time the Bourne River Morris Men have been to Brompton and they got a warm welcome from all, with a great applause at the end of the evening.
Owners were invited along to the Great Hall by Brompton Court owner and resident Mr Myland, to celebrate his 89th Birthday.

Ben, Carl, Ann and Sarah had a great time preparing the food and drinks for the party and ensuring all the owners stayed topped up throughout the evening.
They're back for another season and the Boules are as popular as ever at Brompton Court with this beautiful weather.

Owners had a great time at Brompton Court indulging in our chocolate treats and homemade chocolate strawberries by our chef. All washed down with a nice fresh glass of gin or wine. Suzie and Laura had a great time playing the bar maid role and making sure the owners had everything they needed to enjoy our Jazz singer who put on a great show.
As always, Brompton enjoyed a beautifully prepared buffet lunch by our chef’s John and Marcin, along with a glass of wine and then coffee in your Great Hall listening to our local pianist David Walsh.

Owners enjoyed a Mad Hatters tea party on Monday 21st May at Brompton Court organised by our Duty Managers Ben and Lynne with a little help on the day from Anna & Tracy, who all got into the spirit of the event in their fancy dress costumes.

Brompton celebrated the royal wedding in style on Saturday with a traditional finger sandwich lunch and a glass of prosecco to toast the happy couple.

Owners enjoyed our Bingo coffee morning at Brompton Court hosted by our Chef John’s wife in aid for the Lupus charity. All the cakes were homemade by our lovely host, and Sally, our Duty Manager, did a fantastic job of being our bingo caller. The winners enjoyed prizes from bottles of wine to chocolates. All proceeds went to the charity as the Court provided the staff and coffee as their donation to Lupus.
