Our Chef “Samantha” and her Team spoiled us with a wonderful BBQ, with a salad buffet and a big choice of puddings.

Everybody tucked in and enjoyed the outdoor dining.

From all drinks the Pimm’s was gone first.

The Residents and their families loved the light taste on this hot summer’s day.

A very big Thank you to our kitchen! It was very yummy!


Happy 49th Wedding Anniversary to Wendy and Clifford from all of us at Birchy Hill!

The couple were quite surprised to be celebrated with a cake, balloon and cards.

We’re looking forward celebrating the big 50th with you.

All the best to the both of you!


One of our Residents’ most beloved activities are the Boat trips in the summer months.

We boarded the “Alison MacGregor” a motor yacht which is free for disabled people and their carers.

This year’s first ‘cruise’ through the Solent and Southampton Harbour was a great success.

The sunshine and sea made everybody happy.

Our Residents arrived back home talking about their lovely trip.


……….. With The Jingle Ladies

‘You are my Sunshine’, ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ are only a few of the many well-known songs the Jingle Ladies were singing to entertain our Residents, who joined in singing, clapping, whistling and tapping feet. Everybody was very happy.

The ‘Jingle Ladies’ are a group of friends in the Hythe & Waterside area, who came together in November 2018 to sing some wartime songs to the Residents of local Care Homes for the Armistice Day Centenary.

It was such a success that they were asked to come back at Christmas – so they decided to continue with community sing-alongs, and that was a very good decision!

We will see you again very soon.

Thank you for bringing lots of joy to Birchy Hill!
