Another wonderful evening event, enjoyed by Owners and their guests at Deercote Court this June... What a treat from Spanish tapas, to paella and trio of desserts, to entertainment guaranteeing a pleasant evening. I would not give it a miss.
Owen & Margaret Devine celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary with a well attended get together at Heritage Court which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with music entertainment and a lot of fun. We organised a buffet with a variety of delicious sandwiches, quiches, pizzas, sausage rolls and cakes. Helen’s cupcakes were enjoyed by all. It was great to get everyone together and to see a smile on everyone’s face. Special thanks to all the staff members involved.
Jubilee celebrations took place at Browning Court with Music from the 50s played on a record player for authenticity to create a fabulous atmosphere, and to add to this we used vintage tea cups, saucers and plates. We served platters of sandwiches and fruit cake topped with royal stamps of icing, individual Victoria sponges and fruit scones. Owners had a super afternoon, topped off with a royal quiz and a raffle.
On Thursday 2nd June 2022 the owners gathered for an afternoon tea and garden party to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Duty Manager Nicki worked hard to put on a lovely spread of sandwiches, cakes, scones, Pimm's and prosecco. The garden and tables were decorated in red, white and blue and music was playing throughout. Garden Games were also dotted around for owners with a competitive streak to play. The afternoon was enjoyed by all and the main event was the planting of the Jubilee Rose, something which will commemorate the event for years to come. A big thank you to the staff who helped with the event and also to the board for helping set up the day and for running ‘guess the weight of the cake’ and ‘guess the number of marbles in the jar’ to raise money for the social committee. It was a lovely afternoon and the weather was kind to us as well!
In 2022, we celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first British monarch ever to reach a Platinum Jubilee; an incredible 70 years on the throne. Not only is Her Majesty the first to reach this milestone, making her our longest-reigning monarch, but she is also our oldest reigning monarch. This is an event that will not be repeated for at least a century, and quite possibly ever. To commemorate an event of this magnitude, we have brought together an afternoon tea at Deercote Court celebrating the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The inauguration of the water fountain purchased to celebrate this event also took place during the celebrations.
Owners at Gresham Court had a lovely Queen's Jubilee weekend. We Kicked off with Queen’s favourite hobby, Horse Racing, Ladies Day on Thursday where everyone was a winner, followed by the traditional British Street Party on Saturday afternoon. Thanks goes to our Duty Manager Alex and her helpers Joy and Chantal who put a lovely afternoon together.
On Monday 23rd May 2022 we were visited by the Hearing Dog’s Charity during afternoon tea. The stars of the visit were Grace and Zyla, two fully trained working hearing dogs. Their owner is registered as deaf and came along to not only give a talk on all the good work the charity does but also to demonstrate how Grace and Zyla help her daily. The owners at Eastbank Court thoroughly enjoyed the talk and donated over £180 to the charity. A big thank you to the Eastbank Court Social Committee for arranging this visit.
Montrose Court enjoyed a fantastic weekend of celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee. From watching the pageant on the big screen, planting a tree for the Queen’s Green Canopy, quizzes and games, a buffet lunch and live music for singing and dancing… It really was a party fit for a Queen!
