Montrose Court celebrated the Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan with a traditional afternoon tea. The bubbly was flowing as we toasted the happy couple leaving the church. Our owners enjoyed the buffet and drinks before taking our “Royals over the Years” quiz which was enjoyed by everyone.
The streets of Hoylake surrounding Montrose Court have been beautifully decorated with pink blossom lights following sponsorship from local groups and businesses. The tree was sponsored on behalf of the owners at Montrose Court. They are delighted as it is the first tree to be seen on entering Hoylake.
