August 2015

Our Annual Garden Fete was held on Saturday 22nd August, which certainly felt like the hottest day of the year so far!!  

We raised a whopping £877 this year, which goes into the Residents' Activity Fund, for them to choose outings and entertainment of their choice.  We were lucky to have plenty of donations for our Raffle which included, Kew Garden tickets, Leeds Castle tickets, a Brewery tour, wine and chocolates. 

Bob & Lara's BBQ went down a treat selling burgers and hot dogs and home made cakes for a sweet treat.

Some residents enjoyed a visit to Herne Bay for Fish 'n' Chips - a favourite wish on our 'Wish Tree'.  

We held our first 'Miss Fairby Grange' competition this year.  Some residents wished to participate and each resident voted for their favourite.  The clear winner was Marjorie A. with a second runner up Annie W.  The winner was presented a sash, tiara and a bouquet of flowers. See the Gallery section for photos.

Our gardening club is still thriving and after eating our first batch of salad, we have planted even more.
