Even in these difficult times we have managed to keep in good spirit, celebrating VE day with strawberries and cream and a nice glass of Pimm’s.
The residents had their Macmillan coffee morning delivered to their door; this did not stop us from raising £440.00 for such a good cause.
Our kind post lady made the residents face masks, asking for donations to St Richards. So far we have raised £105.
Lena Hack, with help from friends & staff, once again organized this year’s Macmillan Cancer support fund raising at Brompton Court. Due to Covid-19, we found ourselves in challenging times but with the help from many we still managed to raise a record amount of money, over £2000.00 with a Silent Auction, Grand Raffle and Prize Draws (Win a bottle of Champagne, Win a bottle of Whisky, Guess the Weight of the Cake and Guess the Name of the Bear). We also sold ‘Judy’s Jams’ Marmalade & Chutney from the lobby along with Brompton lavender bags and a small bric-a-brac table for a day.
Welcome to the Pine Tree Restaurant. Here at Brompton we are open every day for lunch service from 12.45pm. Owners and their guests (once Covid rules are lifted) can enjoy a two or three course meal, or an offering from our lite bites menu. All items are available for take away or delivery to your apartment door. This is a great place to meet others for conversation over a beautiful meal without going far. We have also used the restaurant for our quiz nights, fish and chips suppers and events before the current Covid restrictions.
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.
Brompton had a small social distancing send off for Lesley at the end of August. Lesley has worked at Brompton for 17 years as a housekeeping Assistant and thought it was about time to pop her feet up, relax and retire. Thank you so much for all your hard, work you will be missed, good luck!
