A day out at Moseley Old Hall
On Tuesday, we went all the way to Moseley for a fabulous day out – we visited the National Trust’s Moseley Old Hall! It’s a beautiful building, an Elizabethan farmhouse with so many stories to tell. In fact, Moseley Old Hall actually saved King Charles II in 1651 after he fled the battle of Worcester; Cromwell’s troops came looking for him but didn’t find him hiding in the priest hole. Everyone found it incredibly interesting learning all about the farmhouse’s rich history.

The gardens are beautiful, including an intricate knot garden, and the café is wonderful. We spent our day looking around the house and gardens, finishing off with a nice lunch in the tearoom.

Lollipop Ponies
On 15th August, Lollipop Ponies came back to Leycester House! We absolutely love it when the ponies come to visit, and it’s great to see the people living here grinning from ear to ear. The ponies enjoy visiting residents in the bistro, and they can even trot along to residents’ bedrooms too! It’s always a great day when Lollipop Ponies come to play.

August Events at Leycester House
We have four great events lined up for you this coming month at Leycester House, starting on Thursday 1st August! Our first act of the month is the well-loved Paulo Pinto, who is coming back to dazzle us all again with his English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese singing - what a treat.

The following week, Bob Gessey will be here once again - Bob is an outstanding guitarist and vocalist who reproduces a fantastic interpretation of classic songs. We're sure tonight will be another wonderful evening with Bob.

On Thursday 15th August, Russell T. Smith will be joining us, singing the songs of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Elvis and Buddy Holly! We really hope you can join us and welcome Russell to Leycester House.

Last but not least, we have Ben Murphy here with us on Thursday 22nd August. Ben is back by popular demand and we really can't wait to hear him sing here in our home once again.

We hope you can come and join us for our August events. As always, entertainment and refreshments are complimentary but please do RSVP to or 01926 357210.

Carers Garden Open Day
Under summer skies and glorious sunshine Leycester House celebrated the opening of our beautiful sensory garden. This garden was generously donated by a former resident's husband in memory of his late wife and is somewhere that both the Residents and carers can enjoy for years to come. Families, residents and community all came together to enjoy the day.  We also raised money for a lovely young girl called Connie whose family are raising funds for specialised medical treatment. Our Staff came together for a sponsored "one performance only" of a Spice Girls Tribute which had to be seen to be believed! A fantastic day was had by all.

Our stunning new sensory garden
If you’ve been to our home recently, you’ll no doubt have seen that a lot has been happening in our garden area over the last month or so! We’re creating a sensory garden, which will really benefit our residents and will just look and smell simply beautiful.

The sensory garden is now at its final stages, and we’re pleased to say that its Grand Opening will be held at our summer BBQ on 30th June. We can’t wait! We really hope you can come along and see the new garden in all its glory.

The Leycester House Summer BBQ
Can you believe that Leycester House is now in its third year since opening? We’re celebrating this summer with a big BBQ on Sunday 30th June and we’d love it if you came.

Our BBQ offers a great opportunity to forge new connections with the local community and to showcase the hard work and creativity that goes into each day at Leycester House, a fabulous place for your loved ones to live.

July Events at Leycester House
It’s lovely to get residents involved whenever we can, and our events and activities provide a lot of choice and variety, giving a sense of achievement and working towards something – this inspires us all here at Leycester House, staff and residents alike.

This month, we're hoping for some sunshine so we can take plenty of outings to the beach, the races and lots of day trips and picnics. And we also have these fantastic events lined up, which you’re more than welcome to join us for…

Johnny Rickard, a firm favourite here at Leycester House, will be here on Thursday 4th July to perform some rock 'n' roll for us. A week later, Beth Belle will be here to sing all sorts of hits from the 1920s through to the 1960s! On Thursday 18th July, Marcus will be here, a performer we all know and love, then rounding off the month, we have Gary Priestly here on Thursday 25th July for a bit of swing!

Please help baby Connie
Connie Jane has spinal muscular atrophy, which means she's missing a gene that allows her muscles to work.

Connie struggles to move, talk, eat, swallow, and needs breathing support when she's poorly or sleeping.

The good news? There's a pioneering treatment available.

With a price tag of £1.7 million.

If you can afford to contribute to Connie's gene therapy penny pot, please give what you can and give this little girl the change of leading a normal life.
