A massive congratulations to Mrs Joyce Colmer who turned 100 today! She was over the moon to receive her card from the Queen today and have tea and cake with her family in the afternoon.
Look at the marvellous hallways and walkways at Brompton. The wide hallways, kept from the building's hospital days, and great design work creates a spacious and luxurious atmosphere when you are coming and going from your apartment.
Holmesdale Manor has had a beautiful display this year, with the addition of stunning pots, fabulous Acers, new borders and a sensory herb and vegetable feature. Huge thanks to our owners and particularly Maggie Beaumont for all the tender loving care in helping the plants get through a fabulous hot summer.
What a treat! We have such gems hidden here at Brompton, all with their stories to tell. A couple of months ago Jean Sparrowhawk gave an amazing talk about her life experiences… This time Graham, who is quite the orator, kindly agreed to give a fascinating talk namely ‘My War’. His talk was all about his experience as a child during the war and having to be moved a number of times with his mother across country. Thank you Mr Harrison.
Enjoy two garden areas to sit and relax in at Brompton Court. The first for quiet reflection by our Chapel and bungalow apartments. The second boasting our delightful decking area with ideal seating for owners to come together on sunny days for conversation and socialising. We also use our main lawn area for outside events, birthday parties, Jazz bands and Caribbean evenings, along with bowls and our VE day and JV Day celebrations.
One of our wonderful features here at the Court is a lift from our gardens to gain access to the town centre. Once you take the short lift ride down you are only a 5-minute walk to Bournemouth town centre with all your shopping needs and local bus and taxi station. A great benefit to the Brompton Court lift Style.
Brompton is a pet friendly development so no need to worry about whether you can bring your best friend when you move in. All dogs must be on a lead in and around the grounds and public areas. We have plenty of gardens for you to enjoy walking with your greatest pal. Say hello to Mille, the Court Managers best friend...
Brompton Court is blessed to have the original chapel from the building’s hospital days refurbished into the owner’s lounge. I am sure you will agree this has a wonderful charm and we can ensure you this is a great place to have coffee with friends and family along with other owners of the court. We serve coffee with an honest tin from 10am – 2pm 7 days a week. This space is also used for events like Jazz evenings, coffee mornings, Burns night and our famous cheese and wine evenings.
A very special lady, Mrs Margaret Harvey celebrated her 100th birthday on Thursday the 23rd of July. She enjoyed champagne and chocolates from Kingsdale and a lovely day out with her family. On her return her neighbours at Holmesdale Manor were waiting for a surprise happy birthday sing along. Happy birthday Margaret!
Owners enjoyed a social distancing Caribbean evening hosted by our Duty Manager Lynne. Thank you so much to chef John for his Caribbean themed menu and to our staff Kelly and Teresa for looking after our owners. The cocktails went down a treat and with Jorge providing some traditional Caribbean music and some songs we all know it was a holiday at home. Our staff and owners even enjoyed some social distancing dancing and social interaction. It was a great success and very much needed for our owners mental health and wellbeing. Once again a big thank you to Lynne for all her hard work and to chef Raf, Kelly and Teresa for making the evening a wonderful and colourful event.
