Garden Party at Melbourne makes the Press again

It was the ideal time for a summer Garden Party at Melbourne House, when everyone could 'get together'

 

Special guest Val opens the proceedings and is well received by residents, guests and staff, he probably was the 'star of the show'

'

 

Other stars include fabulous singers 'Razzle Dazzle' with their special blend of songs and ditties, well loved and recognized by all and plenty of 'sing along' opportunities, which is so good for young and old. 

Our lady residents, Betty Culpin and Dorothy Finch, enjoy the entertainment.

 

'Give us a kiss' 'not likely' says Val. Chloe looks on amused.as Val shows his teeth to visitor.

 

 

A splendid array of cakes and desserts were enjoyed and not a morsel remained. Thanks to all those who helped create a great display and tasty too!

The two Marie’s certainly work well as a team!
