Garden Party at Freedom Aged Care

Bowlers (or Rollers) from C.ex Bowls Club and some members of Coffs Harbour Garden Club attended a garden party at Aveo Freedom Aged Care, Taloumbi Road Coffs Harbour today, 30 October 2019.

Freedom Aged Care is not a nursing home and part of the ethos of this residential care facility, that to live well is a right, not a privilege. Today had the hallmark of people having fun and enjoying their residential living to the absolute fullest.

What a delightful afternoon for an outdoor party - a gentle breeze, top entertainment, chatter, a glass of bubbles and beautiful Devonshire tea with the residents and stunning surroundings. The gardens were a delight, credit to the single garden who maintained all the gardens.

it has to be said they really 'rocked' the music

Lush lawn, beautiful gardens and lots of fun

Not much left of the beautiful sandwiches, just the basil garnish!

The Bowls ladies entered into the spirit
of the garden party theme with their hats.

A lovely fuschia 

Lots of colour in the garden
