Even in these difficult times the residents of both Holmesdale Manor and Great House Court came together - socially distanced, of course - to record The Secret Garden audiobook to raise money for charity. Special thanks goes to those residents that pioneered this idea in the beginning.
This is an amazing and creative task to do and it shows that people can still do something positive despite the circumstances. But enough about Covid-19, copies of the audiobook will be available shortly and updates of when they will be released online will follow.
A big thank you from Macmillan!
Thank you so much for raising a fantastic £165.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in our Coffee Morning this year. We hope that you enjoyed it, and that you’ll pass our warmest thanks on to everyone who helped to make it a success. Finding ways to enjoy time with people has never mattered more, so thank you for proving that nothing stops a Macmillan Coffee Morning.
The total you have raised to date is an AMAZING £2,836.56!
Every single penny you raised will have been a tremendous help to people living with cancer during an extremely tough year. There have been more treatments put on hold, more calls to our helpline, and more isolation and money worries due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Thank you again for supporting Macmillan Cancer Support.
Holmesdale Manor has had a beautiful display this year, with the addition of stunning pots, fabulous Acers, new borders and a sensory herb and vegetable feature. Huge thanks to our owners and particularly Maggie Beaumont for all the tender loving care in helping the plants get through a fabulous hot summer.
A very special lady, Mrs Margaret Harvey celebrated her 100th birthday on Thursday the 23rd of July. She enjoyed champagne and chocolates from Kingsdale and a lovely day out with her family. On her return her neighbours at Holmesdale Manor were waiting for a surprise happy birthday sing along. Happy birthday Margaret!
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!
