Special edition Monopoly is a winner at Tonbridge care home


Residents of Barnes Lodge Residential Care Home in Tonbridge spent an afternoon getting stuck in to the Tunbridge Wells edition of Monopoly.


Armed with a comfy chair and plenty of cups of tea and biscuits, residents of the Tudeley Lane residential care home settled down for a potentially lengthy game of Monopoly, sampling the exciting new Tunbridge Wells souvenir edition.


The board game, which was kindly donated to Rapport Housing & Care by Cripps, features around 30 landmarks, which replace famous Monopoly addresses, as voted for by local residents. Mayfair and Park Lane become the Pantiles and jeweller G Collins & Sons, whilst Calverley Grounds takes the place of Old Kent Road as the cheapest spot on the board. Other leading landmarks starring on the board are Trinity Theatre, Town Hall, Tunbridge Wells Museum, Royal Victoria Place, the town’s cricket and rugby clubs, the Assembly Theatre and the Spa Hotel.


Accompanied by activity staff, the group of residents raced around the board, building a property empire to beat one another to the top.


Katie Samuels, social activities facilitator at Barnes Lodge commented: “The residents absolutely loved playing the local Monopoly edition, the afternoons are still so cold and dark at the moment, so staying in the warm with lots of tea and board games is very appealing!


“We would particularly like to thank Cripps for donating the games.”
