Coffee at The Cannons

We were so excited to join residents at The Cannons for a coffee morning on Thursday 27 September.

Foxburrow Grange has been working in partnership with The Cannons, the extra care facility in Colchester, owned by Colchester Borough Council and managed by Colchester Borough Homes for a little while now.  We have been inviting The Cannons’ residents to come along to some of our activities and events at Foxburrow Grange so that they can not only enjoy the activities on offer but they can see what goes on at a care home.

We had heard that a couple of The Cannons’ residents were big Elvis fans so we invited them to come along to our Elvis tribute act and they loved it!  It is really important to us at Foxburrow Grange that we open our doors to the wider community so we regularly invite people in from the local area to enjoy and engage in our activities.  Former Colchester United footballer Bobby Hunt and his wife are regular visitors and have taken part in our activities for the last few months and we are keen to welcome more people who would benefit from our events.

It’s great that we have made such a lovely connection with The Cannons and we had a great time meeting up with residents and having a good old natter over a lovely cuppa!
