Pony rides, a barbecue and a tombola were among the attractions at a family fun day held at Fernhill House this summer.   

Friends and relatives joined residents to enjoy a delicious meal cooked in the grounds by the home’s award winning chef Chris Williams.  

Chris has an impressive pedigree – he has worked with Heston Blumenthal and Marco Pierre White and won AA rosettes and culinary accolades aplenty over the course of his 25 year career.   
A huge fan of organic and home grown produce, he has appeared on MasterChef and has just cured the pizza oven within Fernhill House’s two acre grounds, which will be inaugurated shortly.   

People across four generations were represented at the event – with some children visiting their great grandfather.   The event is one of an eclectic range of activities which reflect Fernhill’s ethos of fun, being an integral part of the wider community and of an ongoing relationship with the friends and family of those living at the home.   

Other activities include visits from musicians, authors, TV personalities and animals, a range of beauty and holistic therapies and trips to places of interest.   

The all inclusive residential fee enables friends and relatives to share meals and drinks with their loved ones as often as they wish – an unusual and popular feature aimed at ensuring Fernhill House is a home in the true sense of the word.
