“Where is our summer”? The sun may not be shining in Kenton very much at the moment, but is always burning brightly in Kenton Hall. We had an excellent day with entertainment, balloon sculpting, tombola wonderful snacks and cakes and a very successful raffle at our (indoor) Summer Fair. We raised £1800 which has been made up to £2000 by our Directors – Thank you.
I would like to thank everyone who helped make our day as successful as it was, in particular Dorne and a host of wonderful people who sold raffle tickets – All prizes have been claimed.
Let's get quizzical

King Charles III Coronation!
We all at Kenton Hall wish King Charles III and Queen Camila the very best upon their coronation. We celebrated in true Kenton Hall style!
Celebrating 20 years of service
Mandy Burk has dedicated 20 years to her role as a care assistant at Kenton Hall.
Thank you and well done Mandy!
Tilly, our resident tortoise has been to the vets for her annual once over. Clean bill of health!
A fab few hours were spent at Beamish museum, the volunteers were in their 1930s/40s dress & welcomed us into orchard cottage where we sat around a large dining table, the coal fire was warm & welcoming. We cut slices of fresh bread & the residents in turn toasted it over the open fire using a toasting fork. We then had some delicious home made jam & marmalade to go with it.
Preparing For Summer
The Staff and Residents of Kenton Hall work hard under the sunshine preparing the gardens for summer – a great afternoon
Dying Matters Week
Kenton Hall were proud to play host to the Newcastle Palliative Care team in raising the awareness of dignity and support for anyone involved in preparing for a loss.
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.
Releasing Our Butterflies
We have been engaged in a project to observe butterflies developing from caterpillar to pupa to butterfly. We released these beautiful Red Admirals today, to the delight of some of our residents.
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!
Tilly The Tortoise!
Our latest member of our team Tilly the Tortoise will be taking maternity leave. We will keep you updated on the happy news!!😁
We promised some Tilly the tortoise updates! Here she is having a delicious lunch with our residents!
Betty Hall celebrates her 102nd birthday
Having lived at Kenton Hall since September 2020 our resident Betty Hall has celebrated her 102nd birthday surrounded by family and friends. At her birthday party, which was attended by her son Peter, she was showered with cards, gifts, flowers, balloons and received a card from the Queen.
Betty says her secret to a long life is good food and good company

Kenton Hall Refurbishment
On the 1st December 2021 Kenton Hall re-opened, revealing the refurbishment on the ground floor. This refurbishment has provided fresh new spaces where families can come sit with their relatives and residents can view the garden from the comfort of the conservatory. Take a look at our video below to see some of the changes that we have made.
On the 11th November, we held a Remembrance Service, remembering all those we have lost. The service was streamed live for our residents, families, and staff members to watch.
