Our afternoon strawberry teas were delivered to the apartments; they included cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches, fresh scones and clotted cream, and of course delicious strawberries. It was a welcomed treat!
VE day was a success, the owners were individually served sherry and cakes to celebrate. We also sang throughout the building ‘We’ll meet again’.
Owners have also had a special lunch of fish and chips served from our local fish and chip van. It was enjoyed by all.
Browning Court has loved the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful gardens with the help of the sunny weather. We had the pleasure of an owners daughter playing the cornet in the gardens to entertain all (social distancing was followed).
Thank you to our resistant Mr Garry Shieldhouse for his breath taking photography of our gardens coming into Bloom. The residents are really being treated this year with our gardens and just at the right time too during lockdown. A number of our residents are using the area for their daily exercise and being able to socialise outside while social distancing from one another. One resident has said ‘’how lucky are we to have this during these times’’.
All Owners and Staff at Deercote Court would like to wish Mrs Hill all the absolute best on her 100th Birthday and reaching this incredible milestone. Babs has recently completed her fundraising walk for NHS Charities Together and has raised an amazing £3,675 to this date. We are enormously proud of Mrs Hill and wish her health and happiness on this special day and always.
At Brook Court we began our VE Day celebrations, along with our local fire crew, with a minute's silence at 11am. We continued the celebrations keeping to social distancing guidelines. At 12 noon we had a clap in remembrance of VE Day followed by a sing a long. We were joined by West Mercia operations patrol unit who have put a video on their Twitter feed ( opu Worcestershire).
Everyone really enjoyed the morning of celebrations in this very difficult time, which did lift the mood a lot. It was lovely to see all the residents joining in.
Owners joined us in the gardens for a 2 minute silence to honour our WW2 hero’s, followed by the ‘’Brompton Walk’’ (Lambeth walk) and ‘’We will meet again’’. Our chairman John Guthrie and fellow owner Roy Tuersley did a grand job organising the occasion, ensuring the social distancing guidelines were adhered too with the help of our amazing staff. Owners then enjoyed a theme VE Day lunch delivered to their apartments. Bournemouth was blessed with glorious sunshine to top off the celebrations.
Good news from Gresham court, everyone is keeping well at this hard time, therefore I would like to congratulate all at Gresham Court for doing their part in keeping to the social distancing rules.
Owners of Gresham Court properties came out yet again last week on Thursday evening to thank our NHS and Key Workers for all their hard work during this period. We are all grateful for what they do.
The staff here at Eastbank Court would like to say a big thank you to St Stephens Church, they have donated Easter eggs for all the staff who are doing a good job keeping the residents safe and fed. Good job our Duty Manager Angie Tame is not here, she would have the lot, she does have a sweet tooth.
