Hyne Town House Newsletter

Winter 2014

Hyne Town House enjoyed a varied and fun-packed schedule of events leading up to Christmas. Judging by the comments of some of the residents both residents and their families much enjoyed the entertainment on offer.  

Margaret said “It was the best Christmas she’d had. You couldn’t have done more. It was lovely “.  

Another resident, who obviously enjoyed the delicious Christmas lunch stated “The food was better than a 5 star hotel”. 

Steve and I would like to say a huge thank-you to Jean and all the staff for organising and co-ordinating such a wonderful festive season.



The Choir of U3A Entertain the Residents and their Families at the Christmas Carol Service  

With the completion of the extension and refurbishment work, the Home has finally achieved the standard Steve and I always envisaged. We are both enormously proud of the end result and although refurbishments, renewals and upgrades will (and should) continue to take place I think we’ve seen the last of the builders for a while!!  

The enlarged car park has prompted many favourable comments and, as the planting becomes established this summer, it should look even more welcoming.  

Can we remind residents, their families and friends that private dining is available in the quiet lounge. The lounge is used for monthly meetings by The Stroke Association and if anyone else would like to use the room for a meeting or social event please speak to Jean.
