National Care Home Open Day

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

On Friday 20th June, staff and residents welcomed the local community to join them for afternoon cream tea and to see first hand all the wonderful and positive things that we have been doing.

Residents and visitors sat in the glorious sunshine enjoying a cream tea and listening to live classical sounds.

We also raised £80.00 for Ferne Animal Sanctuary for the “Dig for Dogs” appeal!

Cheese and Wine Night at Fairfield!

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

On Tuesday 27th May, we held our very first and very successful “Cheese and Wine” night, for the relatives of those at Fairfield House.  It was a lovely evening enjoyed by all and provided a lovely informal chance for any questions to be answered.

Great care was taken in selecting delicious cheeses and wines to match!
