Christmas Fair 27th November 2016

Many thanks to everyone who attended and supported the Christmas Fair. It was another successful event and raised a significant amount for the Home. This year Santa arrived in a 1969, fully restored Ford Mustang, much to the delight of the children and “Big Kids” who were there ! There were a good variety of Trade Stands, Games and Competitions, a Tea Bar serving hot drinks and Mince Pies and of course the Raffle with lots of prizes to be won. Special thanks to Steve Soutar of Soutars Fine Meats for the donation of the £50 Christmas Meat Voucher which was first prize and won by Terry Trevett. Second prize was the luxury Christmas Hamper which was won by John Claxton and Third Prize was a Lush Gift Set, donated by Lush Cosmetics which was won by Steve Turner and collected by his wife. The Verwood Brass Band played Christmas Carols and Christmas Music and a good time was had by all.

Below are a selection of photos from the event. How will Santa arrive in 2017 ???

Brass on the Grass 2014

This year’s Summer Concert took place on the 12th July 2014.

The support for this event was fantastic and thanks go to all the members and public who came along for a wonderful afternoon of Brass Band music from the Poole Borough Band and the Southern Union Chorus.

As always at Zetland Court the weather held good and the Pimm’s kept flowing. The Pig Roast proved a very popular feeding point for all the visitors and the day was then rounded off by a Cream Tea in the home dining room.
