September 2018

Autumn will soon be with us, so we are making every effort to enjoy the last days of sunshine and warmth that September can offer.

We visited the newly refurbished ‘Boathouse Pub’ at Yalding, which used to be called ‘The Anchor’. The pub is set in a beautiful location alongside the River Medway. The staff kindly rearranged the tables for us all and we ate fish and chips, sandwiches and some enjoyed a cheeky glass of wine, whilst watching some boats sail by. We will definitely visit there again.

Debbie braved the roads of London and drove some of us to the ‘Imperial War Museum’. A fabulous day out for our residents, who thoroughly enjoyed looking at the memorabilia of World War I, Families during the War and other War related artefacts. So many memories came flooding back of the bygone years.

On Friday 28th September, Santorini will be singing for us again. I’m sure he will get us all up and dancing again.

Check out our photo gallery of our recent visit to the Imperial War Museum. Mel and Irish look so fetching in their war outfits!!

August 2018

It's been a lovely summer with beautiful warm, sunny days.  We have been in the garden relaxing and trying to keep cool with plenty of ice lollies and drinks.

Mel & Claire took some residents on our second boat trip down the River Medway.  We enjoyed coffee and cakes whilst floating down the river.

We were entertained by our regular visiting Nursery Children, who sing songs, play games and generally run around, which is most enjoyable to watch.  The same children visit each time, which is lovely as we get to see them grow up and blossom.

Mel organised a new singer to come and sing with us.  He had us all up and dancing whilst he played some great songs on his keyboard.

June / July 2018

June was full steam ahead with preparations for our annual Summer Fayre.  We're having various stalls including plants, tombola, cakes, guess the name of the teddy, guess the weight of the cake, raffle, wood work, Avon and of course our legendary BBQ.

Our Fete clashed with the England football on Saturday 7th July - but this didn't stop us from having fun and raising an amazing £546.  What a glorious day it was indeed, lovely weather, good food and good company.  We were entertained by Miranda who sang for us.  Some of us were up dancing and singing along with her.

We held our annual Mr and Mrs Fairby Grange, which was won by our lovely Elvira and Alan.  Elvera was presented with a tiara and roses and Alan a crown and box of chocolates.  Well done both of you.

Also during June we visited the seaside and ventured out to our twice monthly Singing Club and Memory Cafe.  

See our gallery page for some lovely photos of the fete.
