Tenants at Dean Court Dine in Style This Christmas

BO’NESS tenants were treated to a real festive cracker this year as they celebrated at their annual Christmas party.   

Tenants at Bield’s Dean Court Retirement Housing development took part in a day of festivities on Sunday 16th December, donning party hats and indulging in a lavish three-course meal.

Served by staff and family members, the 20 tenants and five family members and friends had the option of winter vegetable soup or a melon cocktail for starters.

For the main, tenants chose between roast turkey served with all the trimmings and braising steak with seasonal vegetables.

Finishing the feast in style, those with a sweet tooth chose from gateaux and cream or trifle, while cheese and biscuits were on the menu for those preferring a savoury option.

The party continued with a raffle, featuring prizes such as toiletries, chocolates, wine, knitted dolls and a biscuit hamper. Raising a grand total of £79, the sum will be put towards the maintenance of the development’s fish tank.

To finish the night off, musical guest Davie Glen performed a series of songs from many genres including Scottish, Country and western music. The singer also sang hits from the 50s and 60s, as well as a Christmas song or two to get tenants in the festive mood.

Alison Lowe, Retirement Housing Manager at Dean Court, said: “Tenants seemed to have a lot of fun at the party. It was superb to see them all gather round and enjoy a wonderful dinner together.

“Some of the staff’s family members and relatives of the tenants also came along to lend a hand and help with the meal in the afternoon. We could not have done it without their efforts.

“It is these sort of events that bring everyone at the development together as a community and leave older people smiling.”

Dean Court in Bo’ness is a Bield development for those aged 60 and over who want to be able to retain their independence while having help on hand when needed.

Bield has been providing high quality housing and related services for older people in Scotland for more than 40 years.
