Residents, friends and family from our three houses got together for our annual summer party and, although breezy, thankfully the weather was on our side.
It was a great opportunity for old friends to catch up over a refreshing fruit punch and for the important people in our residents’ lives to get together and celebrate the Abbeyfield way of life.
The musical entertainment was provided by the Attic Band in our lounge whilst everyone enjoyed the lovely cocktails followed by a delicious afternoon tea baked by our talented chefs.
As part of our afternoon celebration John Connelly our CEO, together with Vee Wilkinson one of our volunteer Executive Committee members, presented a Long Service Award to Kath Brown. As many of you know Kath is the manager of our Grove house but you may not know she has been with us for 30 years – doesn’t time fly Kath!
We are so fortunate at Abbeyfield Newcastle for having such a committed team of staff and volunteers who go the extra mile to make a real difference to the lives of our residents.
