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 […]

  July update from The Priory   Is it just me, or as we progress through the summer, is the weather getting worse rather than better? At least the lawns are not that pale shade of brown this year – so far anyway. The garden is looking great at The Priory thanks to John, so […]

  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 […]

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 […]

February Update from The Priory Good afternoon to you all. Hot on the heels of our January update, I thought I would give you feedback from the Residents’ Meeting and the plans they have for our first few outings. The meeting was very well attended and  Lynne went through some ideas of outings we had […]

The Priory – Final update of 2022 I hope everyone who was able to join us for our Christmas tea party last week enjoyed it as much as we all did. It was a lovely occasion and great to see so many families with their loved ones. A massive thank you to Helen of course, […]
