Austen House’ s Summer Fete Brings The Local Community Together

Staff, residents, relatives and the local community came together at Austen House in Lower Earley to enjoy a Summer BBQ Party that was held in the home’s grounds on 12th of August.

Austen House hosted a variety of activities throughout the day, including a delicious BBQ and cocktails, live entertainment by fabulous Gary and garden games, which were enjoyed by everyone who came to the event.

Staff at Austen House made everyone feel welcome and were delighted to see different generations having fun together. Visitors enjoyed plenty of refreshments, such as Mojito, Strawberry Daiquiri, Pimm’s, Aperol Spritz, burgers, hot-dogs, chicken drumsticks, cakes and more prepared by Hospitality and Life Enrichment teams, who were hard at work making sure that a great time was had by all – it really was a team effort!

Resident Jocelyn said, “I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was surrounded by lots of great people, and the refreshments kept flowing. The weather wasn’t perfect, but couldn’t stop us to have fun. Staff did a great job, not just on the day, but organising the event and getting everyone together.”

Joseph Patterson, General Manager at the home, said: “Staff at Austen House are dedicated to making sure that the home is a hub of the local community, and this event, along with all their hard work, has definitely paid off. It was a resounding success!”
