Owners joined us for wine, whisky and songs galore for a very special Burns evening. We also welcomed Jim the Piper and David Walsh the Pianist for our entertainment for the evening. John our chef prepared a beautiful three course meal followed by cheese and biscuits, with mints and coffee to finish. Brompton would like to give a special thanks to our owner Gordon Duff for being our Chieftain and Suzie our Duty Manager for organising the event.
Eastbank's Christmas Party Weekend, which was held on 14th and 15th December for the Owners and their families, proved to be another very popular event and was a great success thoroughly enjoyed by all. Mr Graham organised another impressive raffle raising an amazing £650; the proceeds will be split between St Richard’s Hospice and the Alzheimer’s Society. Laura was also at the Court selling many Christmas goodies, which owners enjoyed looking at and purchasing.
Our generous owners at both Holmesdale Manor and Great House Court combined forces to raise £245.70 for the MacMillan Biggest Coffee Morning. Well done to all who participated!
On 4th November, Eastbank Court ran a ‘Movember’ Event which was held to support National Men’s Awareness Month.
Instead of the usual charge for afternoon tea and cake, Owners were invited to make a donation and the proceeds were given towards the Charity for Prostate Cancer. They were also invited to wear a ‘stick on’ moustache, which you will see by the photo’s some did!
Staff were also allowed to come into work in clothes of their choice and wear a ‘stick on’ moustache in return for donating at least £1 towards this Charity.
A grand total of £117.65p was raised towards this worthy cause.
A craft fair was held in the owners' lounge at Brackenbury Manor which was well attended with both owners and visitors buying Christmas gifts.
A Christmas card sale also took place on Thursday's coffee morning in aid of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity which was enjoyed by all.
Owners and staff enjoyed a fantastic Halloween fancy dress party at The Bridges with a themed evening buffet and drinks. Owners were on their feet dancing the night away to music from local singer and entertainer Alana. Prizes were given for the best dressed. As the saying goes… If you’ve got it, haunt it!
There is lots to look forward to in the weeks ahead including Remembrance Sunday’s special lunch with a film evening, a celebrity wine tasting afternoon and a Christmas party.
