Capricorn Cottage Summer Fete

Once again, it was a pleasure to be invited to the Capricorn Cottage Summer Fete at the weekend. Capricorn Cottage in Fleet Hargate is a 34 bed residential home supporting people with learning difficulties managed by Christine Jones.  Over the three years she has been Manager, Christine continues to bring the highest standard of care and education to improve the quality of life for the people in her care.  It’s so refreshing to hear that people in her care go shopping, go on holidays and help with cooking meals.  It’s such a happy place to visit

This year’s Summer Fete included stalls, garden games, refreshments, music and entertainment, and tombola and raffle. The following photographs are of me enjoying myself taking part in the games in the lovely garden.

After coffee and cake, Christine and I had a chat and she thanked me for, once again, accepting her invite.  One thing she did ask me to mention was to thank Cllr Peter Coupland for his generous donation of £250 from his Ward Budget towards this year’s Christmas Party. She was extremely grateful.
