Brompton had a super baby shower for Anna, our Housekeeper, and Laura, the Court Manager. Both girls are due in the New Year, so owners had a glass of bubbly and cake to celebrate with the girls. Both promise to be in with babies for cuddles in the New Year. The owners and staff showered the girls with some beautiful gifts. A BIG thank you from Anna and Laura to all at Brompton Court.
A good time was had by all at the Holmesdale Manor Christmas do this year on Thursday the 20th of December. Once again, the lounge was completely packed. A wonderful event enjoyed by all.
Montrose Court enjoyed mulled wine and mince pies as the Christmas lights were officially switched on and the festivities began. Owners are enjoying weekly films in the run up to Christmas and the team couldn’t resist getting festive with their own Christmas jumpers! Annual owners party lunches have been wonderful days and we have more bookings for Christmas lunch and Boxing day than ever before. With so much planned for 2019 we are excited to see in the new year with a Champagne party and not too many sore heads on January 1st… Hopefully!
Brompton had their Christmas Party last night in the Great Hall. The wine was flowing along with soft drinks and a beautiful finger buffet cooked by our guest chef. Owners were entertained with our live singers who sang 50’s, 60’s and Abba songs, plus some Christmas Classics for all to enjoy. Thank you to Lynne, Donald, Suzie, Sally and Kelly for all their hard work on the night. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Brompton to all.
Brompton welcomed Chrissy from MacMillan Cancer Support to give us a talk on the charity. Thank you to Lena Hack for organising Chrissy to come along. Owners enjoyed coffee and cake and had the opportunity to ask Chrissy any questions they may have. We also had a great surprise as Chrissy awarded Brompton as the Corporate Challenge Winners for 2018. This award is only given to one company per year for their outstanding coffee morning in September to raise money for MacMillan in Dorset.

Our owners had a Chanukah Tea last week to celebrate the ‘Festival of Lights’. This has always been a very well attended and popular event at Farthing Court.
Our owners had a very enjoyable morning as Farthing Court welcomed the choir from Frith Manor School singing Christmas Carols. The school collected donations from our owners for the Homeless in Barnet. Waitrose also kindly donated mince pies for the occasion. A wonderful morning for all.
