We held our MacMillan Coffee morning today, which was very busy with lots a cake eaten, and a brilliant sum of £330 raised!
We held our Macmillan coffee morning this morning; some lovely cakes were donated and so far we have raised £169.51.
We would like to thank Mr Griffin for creating this magical place. It has been admired not only by fellow owners and staff but also guests visiting our court. You are always there tending to your flowers and happy to stop and have a chat. Your hard work has certainly paid off.
Another successful and well attended evening. According to Dr Hawkins, owner at Deercote Court, it was the greatest fish and chips ever; followed by Dog Racing, enjoyed by all. Congratulations to the lucky winners.
Anna, our cook at Deercote Court, is doing a sponsored walk to support Macmillan Cancer Charity. Anna’s goal is to complete 150 miles in September! Anna has completed 91 miles to date and still has 59 miles to go!

It was a very special occasion at Brompton Court! The first ‘proper’ gathering inside the Great Hall since Lockdown and what a great event it was. Mrs Ractliffe hadn’t been able to celebrate her 80th last year, due to Lockdown, so it was time to get her ‘glad rags’ on and to invite everyone to have a “knees up”!
A lovely time was had by friends & family, a fabulous buffet and great entertainment that got many of the Owners up and dancing! Our thanks to Carl, Suzie, Claire and Tracy who all helped to make this event run so smoothly.
There’s nothing quite like a ‘Brompton Brunch’ and our Chefs, John & Fernanda, certainly didn’t disappoint us to finish August off in style!
A wonderful selection of beautifully prepared dishes, everything cooked to perfection, and for those with a sweet tooth… you couldn’t resist the Key Lime Cheesecake or Trifle that was on offer. Everyone was well fed and watered, with coffee served in our Great Hall and some lively background music to round it off perfectly!
Our thanks to all the staff who helped to make this event happen, Sally, Nicola, Kimberley, Sarah, Tracy and Mariza.
This weekend, we were proud to host the art work of Montrose Court resident and artist Brian Ewart as part of Wirral’s Open Studio Art Tour. Numerous artists opened their doors across Wirral at no charge, to allow others to see their collections and talk to the artists. Brian’s pieces were incredible and attracted over 100 visitors. We look forward to seeing Brian’s next creation in the coming months.
We had a super seaside themed Barbecue, with Jacket potatoes and lamb kebabs, followed by a Raffle and quiz.
We welcomed the return of our Cheese and Wine evening at Gresham Court, being hosted by one of our Duty Managers, which has been long awaited as is a firm favourite. A fine selection of cheeses and wines from around the world were enjoyed over scintillating conversation and great company.
Everyone at Farthing Court had a wonderful time and enjoyed delicious sandwiches and cakes.
William Smith, a firm favourite, has been entertaining us since 2013. The perfect way to dance off the Lockdown Blues.
Yet another well attended event at Deercote Court... Ploughman’s Supper followed by entertainment “Play Your Cards Right” was thoroughly enjoyed by all participating owners. This last event of the Summer was a true success.
Over 30 owners joined us all together today for the world’s biggest coffee morning and fundraising event to support people living with cancer.
All participants have enjoyed a complimentary cup of coffee served with a slice of carrot cake, Victoria sandwich, lemon drizzle, fruit loaf or mini cherry muffins.
Together we have raised an amazing total of £451.00.
