The Summer Party at Orwell Private

On Monday 18th of July we had the most magnificent afternoon in the sun with musical guests and a visit from the Ice Cream man at our Summer Party. Residents, family, friends and staff were all invited to enjoy the music and soak up the sun.

A huge Orwell thank you is due to all our musical acts on the day, especially Brian Dunphy and Finbarr Clancy of The High Kings who entertained our residents in the gardens. The Orwell Choir also took part and the Cardenza quartet.
