Last Sunday, a group of our older guests from Coventry enjoyed an idyllic afternoon in the countryside after being invited to Coombe Abbey for tea.
Guests and volunteers were treated to a delicious spread in the Walnut room which included a birthday cake for one of the guests who was celebrating her birthday.
Group Coordinator, Beverly said:
“This was a truly magnificent place and we all felt so privileged to be there. We all made such memorable memories that day, these will last forever.”
Staff at the hotel who regularly put on local events for the community, decided to host the group after being contacted by one of the volunteers.
Sales manager Nicole said, “It is very important for us as a hotel to give back to the community. When we received Beverly’s email it sounded a fantastic opportunity to give this group a special time and we were delighted that we could offer the space and the afternoon tea and are all really pleased it was so well received.”
