Parley Place’s country themed fair brings local community together

Staff, residents, relatives and the local community came together at  Parley Place to enjoy a Country Themed Fair that was held in the home’s grounds on 22nd July 2023.

Parley Place had a variety of entertainment throughout the day, including Ferndown Strummers Ukulele group, Starlight line dancers, Charlotte Geary singing, local stalls and of course refreshments. There was a raffle and all money made on the day was split between 2 worth while charities.  Firstly supporting Ferndown Community Support and secondly our YMCA Sleep Easy 2023 campaign which will see staff sleeping rough so others don’t have to later this year.

Staff at Parley Place made everyone feel welcome and were delighted to see different generations having fun together. Visitors enjoyed refreshments, such as Tea, coffee, cakes and hot dogs all prepared by the catering team, who were hard at work making sure that a great time was had by all – it really was a team effort!

Resident, Jan said, “I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was surrounded by lots of great people, the entertainment was wonderful, even the staff when they performed a line dance for us!   The weather wasn’t so kind but Staff did a great job, not just on the day, but organising the event and getting everyone together.”

Tracey,  General Manager at the home, said: “Staff at Parley Place are dedicated to making sure that the home is a hub of the local community, and this event, along with all their hard work, has definitely paid off. It was a resounding success!”
