July 2022: Kickstarting Summer at Kingston Court


Kingston Court Newsletter: July Edition

It’s been a jam-packed June here at Kingston Court, where our residents have been enjoying the sunny weather in our wonderful gardens as well as a variety of fun activities and events.

We have been out exploring our local area, including a visit to Tullie House Museum where we took in their spectacular exhibition of period dress, railway history and wildlife – before concluding the visit with a delicious meal in their newly refurbished restaurant. 

On 18th June we celebrated Father’s Day in style with a Cheese & Wine afternoon. Our residents loved tasting the variety of cheeses and wines from across the continents and it certainly went down a treat for all! Happy father’s day again to all the wonderful gents in our lives.

We also showed our support for the LGBTQ+ communities #PrideMonth2022 with a week of colourful activities which our residents loved getting involved with. 

Amongst all the excitement and celebrations, we also said a bittersweet goodbye and good luck to our Deputy Manager, Colin who left the home to embark on his next adventure. Colin will be sadly missed  but we certainly gave him a leaving party to remember – special thanks to Caron, Ruth and Sheila for a fantastic buffet.

We wish you all the best Colin and hope you will be back to visit us soon!



Our #PrideMonth2022 Celebrations

From 20th-25th June, our residents enjoyed our “Rainbow Week” as we celebrated everything #PRIDE in support of the LGBTQ+ community. We decorated the home in lots of pride flags and bright signs handmade by our residents, and also had a huge rainbow balloon arch on the middle floor which everyone loved!

At the end of the week, we had a big trolley party going round the whole home, with brightly coloured decorated cakes for all the staff & residents to enjoy. We were also entered into the wide Mariposa Care pride celebration competitions – and won BEST DECORATED HOME!

Big thank you to Dan, Sheila.D & Sheila.P for all their delicious cakes and sweet treats – and to the wider team for all your fantastic efforts in making the week so wonderful for our residents.
