Owl Visitors

Friday, February 20th, 2015

On the 19th February, we had two Beautiful Owls come visit from the New Forest Owl Studio. Meet Twany Owl (Beebo – Left) and Black Barn Owl (Nibbly – Right).

‘Beebo’ became friends with our eldest resident in an instant! However, come home time, ‘Beebo’ didn’t want to leave her side. The immediate bond was amazing to see.

Fish and Chip Friday at Fairfield House

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Our Head Chef Paul Fenner, before joining Fairfield House in 2008 successfully ran his own bistro. Paul’s specialty is seafood, hence fish and chip Friday is not only immensely popular with our residents but also tends to be a busy day for visitors who enjoy Paul’s delicious fish and chips.

Freshly caught fish from Lyme Bay encased in a bubbly but crisp batter served simply with thick cut chips and a slice of lemon is the perfect end to the week.
