January update from The Priory A very happy New Year to you all and a warm welcome to 2024. I don’t know why but I always appear to comment on the weather when I start these updates. Looking back over the last few months of 2023, it was always wet and dismal, so I am […]

December update from The Priory Having talked about the wet, cold, horrible weather in the last newsletter, the weather so far for December has been no better! Let’s just stay inside, in the warmth, with friends and family – and possibly pull the curtains so we can’t see what is happening outside! Our last outing […]

November update from The Priory What a wet end to October and an equally watery start to November! However, the weather was kind to us on Friday when we welcomed a large crowd of residents, families and staff to The Priory for our Fireworks Party. The house was still wonderfully decorated from Halloween so it […]

October update from The Priory   We are now well into Autumn, but it feels warmer than the Summer was – and we still have a wonderful weekend to come. This update is going to be a bit longer than usual as Judith and I were away for much of September on a Covid delayed […]

  August update from The Priory   Still no summer, but at least the end of this week is a lot better than it has been so the residents have been able to take some rays in the comfort of the garden. The weather put a bit of a dampener on our Family Tea Party […]

  June update Just a short update this month as Judith and I have been away for 10 days. A visit to France, with quite a bit of rain! It is so frustrating that it has been lovely back here – but wonderful too. The most immediate event is our rescheduled pub visit on next […]

The Priory – May update I hope everyone enjoyed the Coronation. It was certainly a spectacle – something that we do so well in the UK. The residents were glued to their televisions for most of the day. Other than the event itself, I will have lasting memory of Penny Mordaunt bearing the swords of […]

April Update from The Priory STOP PRESS! Due to lack of drivers from Chippenham Transport, we have had to cancel our trip to The Red Lion – join us at The Priory for fish & chips instead – see below. I think summer is over before Spring has even really started. After a lovely few […]

March Update from The Priory Good afternoon to you all. Having had such a dry start to the year, the British Spring is upon us. John has been preparing the garden for the new season and has done a great job. The wisteria has had a major haircut which it desperately needed, so maybe not […]
