Lynn, Manager celebrated her birthday by treating the Owners to cake at the weekly coffee morning. We invited Neil Davies a representative from the Histon and Impington Mini Bus Committee and presented him with a cheque for £641, which was raised by all the Owners in 2015 from various events, such as drinks and nibbles nights, a cheese & wine evening & hot cross bun event.
Brackenbury has been redecorated! Phase One back in 2013 consisted of corridors, Guest Suite and Guest Toilet being redecorated. Phase two has now completed with the Owner’s Lounge, Kitchen, Stairwells and Office decorated.
Our new LED lighting was also installed last year making Brackenbury Manor look very stylish!
Now that the Christmas festivities are over we now look forward to the lighter evenings and to when spring is in the air. The gardener will be busy planting the troughs on the first floor and evergreen clematis for the new trellis archways situated in the inner courtyard.
We welcome three new owners to the Court so far this year. There are just three resale apartments available, so hurry and don’t miss out!
Owners preferred choice of the replacement carpet for the lounge and dining room will be fitted in March, along with new sofas and chairs which have been carefully selected for comfort and ease. The new Led lighting will be fitted on the communal walkways shortly.
Some owners visited the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre this week to see Aladdin. They all thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to make a return visit soon.
A full social calendar has been planned for the forthcoming year which includes a fish and chip supper, a beetle drive and a quiz evening owners versus staff.
Deercote Court held a very successful fancy dress Halloween Party which our owners thoroughly enjoyed and another successful Christmas Party with an entertainer. Many owners enjoyed a trip to the local theatre to see Beauty and the Beast. Along with our regular bingo sessions, Cards and Scrabble, we are looking forward to a curry night and polish night in the very near future.
Our internal redecorations are now complete and work continues on our LED lighting upgrade.
