  • It’s back…. Friday fish’ n ’chip night will be on again Friday, 29 July at 6:00pm.
    There will be the usual offering of fried whiting or flathead and chips with tartare sauce. Due to the difficulty of sourcing fish, we have to give the fish monger our order by lunchtime Wednesday, 27 July.
  • One of our residents has very thoughtfully offered a top of the range shower chair for all residents to avail themselves of when needed on a short term basis. If in future you would like to borrow the chair please contact Alexia as it will be stored in the basement storeroom.
  • A lot of rain has been predicted for the week, so please be very careful when transgressing the decking on the courtyard as it can be slippery when wet.
  • If anyone has a jigsaw of around 100/200 pieces that they wouldn’t mind lending to Val who is currently in Faversham House, please contact Alexia. It would be much appreciated and sure to brighten Val’s day.

Week Two of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 25 July..
