Summer Fete Fun at The Orchard

The Orchard nursing home residents enjoyed a fabulous Summer Fete with friends and members of our local community, at our home in St Albans on 7th July.

The Orchard hold this event annually and it just gets better each year. Although the date clashed with the England and Sweden World Cup match, that did not deter our residents, team and guests and we had a great turnout with local people joining our residents, families and team for our fun event.

We even had the local radio station mention our fete on air!

There were many stalls and games to enjoy from live entertainment, BBQ, Bric-a-Brac, kids games and also some stalls from local businesses who came along too, including a local book author, Aloe products, crystal healing, knitting, crochet and craft stalls.

Dennis, also known as ‘One Man Stand’ provided the musical entertainment. He was brilliant as always and had everyone singing and dancing along.

The weather was beautiful, everyone did a fabulous job, and we managed to raise £282.26! Our residents and families all enjoyed themselves, the atmosphere was amazing and that just makes it all worthwhile.

Home Manager, Wendy Walker, said:

“It was a fabulous day with so much support from our residents, relatives, friends and local families. We’d like to thank everyone who came along to support us and who made this such a lovely family event.”

“At The Orchard, we love being involved in local St Alban’s life and opening our doors to welcome visitors to our home. It’s great for our residents and team as it brings all of us together with friends, family and our local community.”

We have a jam packed summer ahead of us and our residents are looking forward to enjoying even more special outings, day trips and entertainment at our home.
