Community supports successful summer fete at Cedar House

 Yelverton based Cedar House retirement home opened its doors to the community once more this week as they held their popular annual summer fete.


Many members of the local community joined residents and staff in the picturesque gardens of the period property to raise money for the residents’ activities fund.


Entertainment included a range of stalls, face painting and a bouncy castle. The star attraction of the day was undoubtedly the ‘Human Fruit Machine.’ Cedar House residents manned the fruit machine holding up pieces of fruit once visitors had paid their money. This was such good fun that one visitor donated £20 as they said they had never laughed so much and felt the entertainment was more than worth the money.


Cedar House Manager, Debra Read told us:


‘Everyone has had a great time today! It is always wonderful when the community comes together to support these events – it is important to our residents that they remain an active part of the wider community.


I would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work in organising the day, along with everyone who attended and all of the local businesses who donated some fantastic raffle prizes.’


Located in the quiet village of Yelverton, Cedar House retirement home provides nursing care for up to 24 elderly people. The home is run by the family-owned Caring Homes Group, which was founded in 1994 by mother and son team, Helena and Paul Jeffery.
