Happy 105th Birthday to Kaye at Highwell House

Wishing the most inspirational lady a very happy 105th birthday today . What a wonderful day we’ve all had Kaye enjoyed a drinks reception at 12 noon, followed by birthday cake and champagne her card from the Queen with her dearest old friend of almost 80 years Jill, and her daughter Justine who drove all the way from London just to be with Kaye today. I’ve never seen the visiting marquee look so fabulous then back inside for a delicious afternoon tea with all the residents including her old neighbour Jeni who Kaye has now been reunited with at Highwell House. It’s an honour and a privilege to care for this most wonderful lady. Kaye looked beautiful today, and loved every moment of it Happy Birthday Kaye from everyone at Highwell House.

A complete sellout at the Farmers Market at Highwell House

The Farmers Market started out as a small idea, and ended up being the most fantastic display of everything I adore about Team Highwell. I was absolutely blown away by the produce that everyone brought in . We had everything you could think of! Spiced gins, cookies, wonky veg, dog biscuits, jams, chutney, tea light holders, salt scrub, jewellery boxes, lavender bags, wine, cakes, wooden bowls, duck eggs etc all homemade or homegrown, and all brilliant! A huge thank you to everyone for getting involved, all orders were placed via telephone or the facebook page , collections of purchased items were collected form the car park and monies placed in the honesty box. The day exceeded all expectations a big thank you Janet who followed up the event with a delicious Ploughman’s lunch which included gorgeous cottage loaves and special thanks to Dawn for displaying the produce so fabulously also big congratulations to Jess for winning the Chase gin in total we have raised just shy of £300 for the residents activity fund. Roll on Harvest festival where we will be planning another one.
