Browning Court made the most of a summer evening serving of Pimms and nibbles out in the beautiful, tranquil gardens!
A lovely morning to enjoy a Coffee in the garden joined by our two furry friends , Indie and Monkey.
We have now re-opened our restaurant! Owners were pleased to be able to meet with other owners, socially distanced, to enjoy a Smoked Salmon salad.
We couldn't let the lovely Kelly say "cheerio" (not goodbye) without giving her the send off that she deserved. Having been part of our Team here at Brompton since November 2018, Kelly had become so popular and dearly loved by both staff and Owners, it wasn't a surprised to see so many come and join in the farewell celebrations.
Kelly moved to England from South America a number of years ago and has always felt that Brompton has become her extended "family", making her decision to move on a particularly difficult one! We hope to still see her from time to time here at the Court and wish her every success for the future.
What a fun night this turned out to be, especially as it was the first "inside event" here at Brompton since Lockdown. A great turn out, with entertainer Dave Walsh at the keyboard, who had everyone signing along to some of the all-time favourites... from "Show Me The Way To Go Home" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" to pieces from "Phantom of the Opera" and "Les Mis".
A wonderful cheese platter was enjoyed by the Owners, with wine that flowed all evening. There were smiles from everyone, with a couple of 'encores' thrown in for good measure!
A huge thanks to Suzie for organising the event, and to Lynn & Nicola for working the event. A really enjoyable evening.
We are pleased to say that our Dining Room is open following the relaxation of COVID restrictions. Our lounge is open for coffee but not for organised events until the 21st June. We are open for Helen with our Wednesday 'Keep Fit' Class, and Gill from Nail Candy. Several events have been booked with a birthday party, a buffet and entertainer in early July and Pimm's on the Patio in late August. The monthly Quiz Nights are restarting in September and the Whist Drive in July.
The re-turfing of the driveway lawns has been completed and the wisteria in the main rear garden is in full bloom. Below are a few photos of Alston Court's gardens.
Owners and staff at Deercote Court were honoured to take part in the birthday celebrations marking Mrs Hill reaching the amazing milestone of 101 years old.
We would like to wish Mrs Hill many happy returns on the day, good health and happiness.
Let's all cheer once again "hip, hip, hooray" to the remarkable lady that Babs is.
We are pleased to see the owners come out to enjoy the sunny weather and celebrate St Georges day with afternoon tea in our beautiful garden. We are looking forward to having many more celebrations in the near future.
We are pleased to see our owners enjoying their second coffee morning this year, in lovely scenery within our courtyard garden.
We are also looking forward to afternoon tea this Friday, in celebration of St. George’s Day.
On the 17th May our dining room is re-opening which will allow owners to socialise more. We wait to see detailed government instructions as to whether the rule of six will apply.
Later that week Helen our fitness coach is starting a series of six exercise classes.
On June 21st (the first day social activities can restart) one of our owners wants her birthday party to be held in the lounge.
Also restarting will be our monthly whist drive (1st Thursday) and also the quiz nights (3rd Thursday) together with our regular coffee morning and chat nights.
In early July we have a Court arranged social event with a buffet and entertainment with Daryl Kane.
In August we will be holding the ‘Pimms on the Patio’ event which is always very well attended. On the same day the new Court Manager, Julie, takes over following the retirement of Andrew who has been in charge for the last 14¾ years.
