They were delighted to welcome family carers, friends, The Mayor of Eastleigh – Jane Welsh, the High Sheriff of Hampshire – Louisa Portal and members of the local community to their event. Everyone gathered together outside where they thoroughly enjoyed delicious snacks, fun-filled games, great company and a fabulous musical show performed by St James Excelsior Band.
Our guests also enjoyed browsing the different arts & crafts stalls throughout the afternoon and everyone at Netley Court was delighted to raise a great total of £130 for Age Concern Hampshire and the resident’s activities funds.
The High Sheriff commented: ‘Thank you for inviting me to your garden party this week and for showing me around your care home. What a wonderful place! It’s so bright and welcoming and quite enlightened with the imaginative use of space on each floor. Of course a brass band always lifts the spirits and on a warm autumn afternoon with a wonderful view across the water, the scene was set for a successful occasion. I very much enjoyed talking to some of your residents and the visitors too. The banana cake and cup of tea was much appreciated.’
