Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure will be a major focus of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat will always be welcomed.
Life at our home
Tesco community event
As we prepare for the second phase of the Marketing Suite to open at Melbourn Springs, Dan our Home Services Advisor held a pop up event at Tesco in Royston to meet the local community and answer questions about our beautiful new home. The excitement is really building now and lots of people who spoke to the team are looking forward to visiting Melbourn Springs for a tea and tour very soon.
Christmas cheer at Morrisons, Royston
Our Home Services Advisor Dan was out and about spreading the Christmas cheer at our Melbourn Springs pop up event in Morrisons, Royston. Staff and shoppers were in a really jolly mood, the carols were playing and many visitors enjoyed a cheeky chocolate (or two) as they met Dan and had their questions answered about Melbourn Springs. Dan was also able to show imagery hot of the press and as you can see the countdown to our home grand opening has well and truly begun.
All of us here at Melbourn Springs would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a truly blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy 2020. We look forward to welcoming you all very soon at Melbourn Springs in the new year.
Great Chishill Christmas Tree Festival
Karen and Dan from Melbourn Springs were delighted to support the Christmas Tree Festival at St Swithuns Church in Great Chishill (after a brief stop at the stunning, famous Windmill of course)
The Church had 25 beautifully decorated trees by various organisations, clubs and societies from the village and the theme was Christmas carols. There was also an extensive music programme over the weekend and the Royston Town Band in particular were truly outstanding.
Best of all was that all proceeds raised from the event went to support the amazing work of St Swithuns Church and Chishill School. Make sure you get this in your diaries for next year - definitely an event not to be missed!
Barley Christmas Market
Our Home Services Advisor Dan was out and about getting into the festive spirit at the annual Christmas Craft Market in the village of Barley. The Market had some beautiful crafts, interesting hand-made gifts - as well as lots of delicious treats too! There was a lovely atmosphere, a vast array of stalls and it was truly a pleasure for Melbourn Springs to be able to support such a fantastic community event fundraising for Barley Church.
Royston Christmas Market
Dan, our Home Services Advisor joined Market Manager - Robert Mills, Royston Town Crier - Graham Pfaff and fellow stall holders at the Royston Christmas Market.
The day was exceptionally busy with Dan on hand to assist with questions about Melbourn Springs and join in the jolly, festive atmosphere.
Royston Market operates every Wednesday and Saturday with trading starting at 8am and finishing at approximately 3.30pm. The Market really is going from strength to strength with lots of delicious food, home-made gifts and is definitely well worth a visit if you get the chance.
Turn on to Christmas
Our General Manager, Karen and Home Services Advisor Dan had a marvellous time supporting the Turn on to Christmas event in Melbourn this year. There was home-made Mince Pies, Mulled Wine, carol singing and even Santa made an appearance too! The annual event hosted by the Hub and Melbourn Fete Commitee is hugely popular with the local community - with lots of fun activities for children and huge amounts of great prizes on the Tombola and Raffle. Karen and Dan cannot wait to share this special event with the residents from Melbourn Springs in December 2020 and join in the festive fun again.
