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.
Congratulations to our General Manager of Deercote Court, Ewa. After a long wait charities started to accept hair donations again, and on 30th of June she decided to make a hair donation to the Little Princess Trust.
Last year, the above charity provided almost 2,000 real hair wigs, free of charge, to young people who lost their hair through cancer treatment and other conditions.
Well done Ewa!
We are pleased to present our side garden created by one of our owners, Mr Griffin, who has recently moved into Deercote Court.
Many owners are taking a walk there to overlook and enjoy this beautiful part of our communal grounds. This is what you call a person who has green fingers!
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 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.
We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy & prosperous New Year.
May Christmas bring joy to your heart and happiness to your home.
From All Staff at Deercote Court
Our socially distanced coffee morning was highly successful. A selection of cakes from chocolate brownie, white chocolate & mint Oreo tray bake, lemon drizzle and marble and coconut cake went down very well. The winner of the Colin’s Conundrum was pleased with the bottle of Premium Champagne. Owners and Staff at Deercote Court together raised an amazing total of £452.00.
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.
Mrs Hill, an owner at Deercote Court, is taking part in the 'Babs' 100th Birthday Walk for NHS' until 14/05/2020 to raise money for NHS Charities Together and your support would really be appreciated.
On Thursday morning I watched the emotional moment of Captain Tom completing his walk for the NHS. That same morning my very dear friend died in Harlow Hospital. The dedicated nursing team worked tirelessly to care and ease her suffering. I felt I have to in some way say thank you to these fantastic, wonderful, caring nurses and doctors.
After much thought the only thing I might manage is to copy and do a walk like captain Tom. So my aim is to walk 100 steps 100 times to my 100th birthday in May to show my gratitude and give something back to the amazing staff in the Health Service.

Yet another well enjoyed Halloween fancy dress party and buffet supper by Owners and staff at Deercote Court... Wicked food, spooky games, creepy decorations and carved pumpkins also contributed to the great success of this event.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all at our Barbecue supper event with the fabulous entertainer Gary Benjafield. He sings all the Neil Diamond songs and tours the country with his backing group. He has been here before and will definitely be back again.
Deercote Court's 2018 Halloween party saw another fabulous Spooktacular night enjoyed by the owners, including graveyard trifle, giant spiders, the mummy game and lots of colourful costumes...
