Residents' Barbecue   

 We had a fabulous barbecue in June and, weather permitting, we hope to make it an annual event.  Our friends from Ambleside Rotary Club kindly provided the barbecue food and the man-power and the Calgarth kitchen supplemented with salads and desserts.  


We were delighted to welcome the members of a television production company who were here to record a piece with Tony Robinson.  Tony was talking with Trevor Avery of the Windermere Holocaust Project and also with Kevin Coulter of Dalton  who was a patient here in 1945, when Calgarth was the Ethel Hedley Orthopaedic Hospital for Children.  Kevin was in the bed next to one of the Jewish refugees, Mendel Preter, who was admitted with TB.  Kevin was also interviwed here for the BBC Open Country programme which was broadcast in November 2018.  We don't know when the Tony Robinson programme will be going out but will put a message up here when we know. 

Open Coffee Morning  

We have not set a date for our next Open Coffee Morning but will put details here as soon as we have a date.  In the meantime, if you would like to visit us and have a look around, you would be very welcome.  Just give me a call on 015394 43016 to fix a date and time.  Thank you.
