Marple Dale had a successful and wonderful Open Day; friends, family members and the local community all enjoyed the wonderful sounds of Eric Bailey and his accordion and were all amazed by Paul Kaye, the Magician.
We hosted a game of bottle bingo and had a great tombola with some fantastic prizes that included a lovely hamper donated by our local Morrisons store.
A delicious barbeque was prepared by our amazing Chefs, Martin and Jerson. We also held a bake off competition to raise funds for Barchester's Charitable Foundation and Cherril Norris was declared the winner for her outstanding cheesecake recipe.
After all of the activities, we indulged in afternoon tea with delicious scones and sandwiches and cakes from the bake off competition, whilst being serenaded by Willie and The Poor Boys Ukulele Band.
A great time was had by everyone!
