Residents at Hydon Hill enjoy a tea party
7 October 2015
On Sunday 4 October residents at Hydon Hill, our care home in Godalming, Surrey, tempted the taste buds of 150 guests with a scrumptious cream tea.
They brewed the perfect party atmosphere and served whipped cream with lashings of strawberry jam on homemade scones.
The afternoon attracted special guests including Mayor of Waverley, Councillor Mike Band, and the High Sheriff of Surrey, Elizabeth Kennedy.
‘Thank you to Hydon Hill for inviting me to tea. I found the visit very interesting and they are clearly doing all they can to offer people the best possible experience. I wish them continued success for the future.’
Hydon Hill’s neighbours and many local people flocked to the event to show their support. Many of these people have visited Hydon Hill’s nearly new shop, but hadn’t appreciated the lovely grounds and extent of the accommodation.
‘We are delighted with the number of local people that came along to meet our residents and find out more about what goes on at Hydon Hill.
‘It was a great opportunity for supporters to find out about and to consider joining the Friends of Hydon committee, which is looking to fundraise for an accessible wheelchair friendly garden, so all of our residents can enjoy the outdoors.’
The day was a great start to their fundraising target with over £500 being raised.
Many of the residents at Hydon Hill have severe disabilities and are unable to easily venture out into the community. It is hoped that this project will bring the community closer to Hydon Hill, so it can be enjoyed by residents, friends and family.
