Kenton Hall hosted a coffee morning on Tuesday 7th Feb 2023 with a visit from some of our friends from Ashton Court. We all had a lovely time and were introduced to our latest resident Tilly the tortoise.
At Kenton Hall we all believe in the wonderful principle underpinning Valentine’s Day, no one more so than Harry Titley, who showered the staff with roses. A true gentleman.
Kenton Hall celebrated with oodles of love by baking and decorating Valentines cakes and biscuits, enjoying some fizz, giving all the ladies a red rose and the gentlemen chocolates and a guess the bride and groom competition both staff and residents participated.
Olga Brown celebrates her 100th birthday - twice!
A war-surviving resident at Kenton Hall has celebrated two 100th birthdays in September, due to her father incorrectly registering her birthday 100 years ago!
Mother of two, Olga Brown celebrates her ‘real’ birthday on September 21 – but her birth certificate says September 20 due to a mix-up by her father when registering her birth.
Olga celebrated with family, including some who travelled from Canada where Olga used to visit her late sister, at Kenton Hall with two cakes, two cards, and two sets of balloons meaning guests enjoyed tucking into twice as many birthday treats.
100th Birthday Card
When Olga celebrated 100 years young in September, we thought that with the sad passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III Olga would not receive the celebratory card from the Monarch. Olga has now received her celebratory card from the Monarch.
St Patricks Day
Residents and staff celebrating St. Patricks Day 2023!
We enjoyed a Burns Night at Kenton Hall Hotel! Residents enjoyed a bag pipe performance as well as some delicious traditional haggis!
Wheelchair Beautification Month
Our residents enjoyed decorating their wheelchairs, and were proud to show off their hard work to their friends and families. Don’t they look spectacular!
