We recently held our annual BBQ in the garden at Gressland Court for Owners, Family and Friends. We adopted a 1960’s theme with entertainment from Lyn & Bobby. Some of our owners enjoyed dressing for the occasion. We also had a charity fundraiser where we raised £33 each for Help for Heroes and The Royal Airforce Benevolent Fund. A fun day was had by all.
Owners gathered for a lovely Afternoon Tea with a good assortment of finger sandwiches, home made scones, cream and Tiptree jams with yet more cups of tea. Another event at enjoyed by all.
Brompton Court held their second summer fete on Friday 20th July, bigger and better than last year. This year we had more stall holders, a licenced bar and Jazz band. Owners had a great time enjoying drinks on the lawn listening to the band and of course spending their pennies on lots of lovely items from scarfs and bags to homemade jams and arts and crafts. The raffle was run by the Bournemouth Hospital who made over £300.00 on the day as a donation from Brompton Court. Thank you to Ben, our Duty Manager, for organising an amazing and memorable event, and to Ann, Tracy, Anna, Raf and Carl for their help on the day setting up and running our hotdog and ice cream stand. A wonderful event for all.
Over 40 owners joined Suzie and Carl, our Duty Managers, on the decking on Monday evening for a glass of Pimm’s with strawberries and cream. 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.
