Kingston Court Celebrates Open Day Success


We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the recent Kingston Court Open Day on Thursday 27th June.


It was a wonderful event that highlighted the strong sense of community in Carlisle – which our home and residents are so fortunate to be a part of. The day was made even more special by the presence of many different members of our local community, including the esteemed local Mayor, Carlisle Ladies FC and children from Trinity School.

It was fantastic to see visitors exploring our home, meeting residents and experience the significant investment we’ve made to the home with the new additions of the Library Cafe and Market Hall facilities. We also had a local ice-cream van make a special stop at the home, brilliant performances from a live singers and even some furry friends for visitors to hold.

Another highlight of the day was the visit from local Year 8 students of Trinity School, who attended as part of the Archbishops’ Young Leaders Award.

The School Chaplain, Tim Burdon, beautifully captured the spirit of the day when he said,

“It was a real pleasure to visit Kingston Court. [Our students] met residents, shared with them about life at Trinity, and brought gifts of baked goods. The staff were wonderful – friendly and hospitable, they made us feel very welcome. It was clear that the residents are very well cared for, and that the facilities are excellent.

The garden was beautiful, a real haven in the middle of the city. The children really enjoyed their time, and were very glad to have been able to do something positive for the community.”

We are incredibly grateful for the kind words and positive feedback. The enthusiasm and kindness shown by the students and staff of Trinity School truly brightened the day for our residents.

Once again, thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the success of the Kingston Court Open Day. We look forward to many more events where we can come together as a community, celebrate our connections, and continue to foster a welcoming and supportive environment for all.
