Blandford Grange care home in Blandford Forum hosted its annual summer fete in July, and the residents and care team at the home were delighted to welcome many members of the local community and dignitaries into their home, including the Mayor for Blandford, Councillor Roger Carter.
The Mayor was given a guided tour of the home and took time to chat to many residents and other visitors in attendance.
The weather was glorious and while visitors enjoyed delicious home-made cakes and refreshments, music entertainment was provided by Allan Knott. Prizes were also won at the popular tombola and raffle stalls, while families enjoyed a number of traditional fete games in the home’s sunny gardens.
Tilla Wagner, the new manager of Blandford Grange said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported our annual fete, as well as those who helped organise it and make it a success. We are delighted to have seen so many familiar and new faces, and were privileged to have the Mayor, Councillor Roger Carter visit us. It was lovely to introduce him to staff and residents, and also have his help in judging our hotly contested chocolate brownie tasting competition!
“It gave us an opportunity to thank the local community for their ongoing support and showcase the home and its facilities and services.”
