Mabel’s Vintage Tearoom at Reveley Lodge
Earlier this month, we took a little trip to Reveley Lodge in Bushey – this Grade II listed building is home to a truly wonderful tearoom called Mabel’s.

Mabel’s Vintage Tearoom is in the impeccably presented Billiard Room inside Reveley Lodge, offering a truly vintage experience. That’s because this isn’t any ordinary tearoom.

Music from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s plays in the background, staff are dressed in traditional uniforms and food is served on vintage china – and the room features a permanent collection of original oil paintings by Albert Chewett, a past owner of Reveley Lodge. One of the paintings is of Mabel the housemaid serving afternoon tea, which is how the tearoom got its name.

Serving afternoon teas and an extensive lunch menu on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays – including vegan and gluten-free options when booked in advance – the tearoom really is a lovely place.

After sampling the finest tea and coffee, we made the most of the opportunity to walk around Reveley Lodge’s wonderful gardens where all sorts of different fruits and vegetables are grown. Everyone had a fabulous time and we’ll no doubt be back at Mabel’s in the future!

Ryefield Court race night!
Last Thursday was the Ryefield Court race night! And what a night it was. There was a great atmosphere here in our home, with residents and the local community all having a good giggle.

It was all to play for, with some brilliant prizes up for grabs – Gerry was happy to win his luxury hot chocolate, and some of our residents’ family members were lucky enough to go home with some prizes too!

In fact, the race night was so good, everyone’s already asking when the next one will be! Keep an eye out for future event announcements and be sure to join us at the next Ryefield Court race night. 
September Events at Ryefield Court
The start of September sees autumn’s arrival, and we’re embracing this cosy season with three wonderful events here in our home.

On Thursday 5th September, we’re starting things off with Gary Roman’s Legend Show – this show involves Gary performing the greatest legends’ songs, including well-loved favourites from Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and Johnny Cash! Get ready for a night full of singing and dancing.

Next up on 12th September is the Ryefield Race Night! We’re pulling out all the stops for a fun-filled evening of exciting races on a big screen here in our home. Come along and join in the fun, complete with ‘fun money’, and place your bets! Prizes will be given to the winners of the races, so it’s all to play for…

On Thursday 19th September, we’re bringing back our popular quiz night following popular demand! It’s time to get your thinking caps on as there are prizes up for grabs once again. Prepare to test your knowledge!

Please remember to RSVP to reception@ryefieldcourt.com or 01895 707106. We hope to see you soon!

Ryefield Court pay a visit to the Big Smoke
On 6th August, some of our residents went on a trip to London for a very special event – a group of classical music lovers went to the Royal Albert Hall to watch the BBC Proms!

With their very own VIP box, they enjoyed a real luxury experience and had lots of fun.

As part of the performance, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra played classics by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake – it really was a day to remember.

007 James Bond-themed casino night
Last Thursday, it was all about Connie; Connie Jane was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at eight weeks of age and struggles to move, talk, eat and swallow. We held a 007 James Bond-themed Casino Night here at Ryefield Court to help raise money for the treatment Connie needs, with everyone donating a minimum of £5 on the door.

Everyone dressed up in their most glamorous attire to place their bets with ‘fun money’ casino chips – we even had professional croupiers and multiple casino tables!

Thank you to everyone who came along – the local community and all the residents of Ryefield Court had an amazing time.
