Locals enjoy a trip to Dame Kelly’s cafe


Residents of the new Tudeley Lane care home in Tonbridge took a short trip to the cosy cafe 1809 in Hildenborough, to enjoy an indulgent treat and hopefully spot Dame Kelly Holmes!

The residents enjoyed the atmosphere of the cafe, whilst tucking into a cup of tea and slice of cake, though unfortunately, they didn’t spot Dame Kelly.
Nicola Newman, Social Activities Facilitator at Barnes Lodge, said: “The residents had a lovely afternoon at the cafe, they all commented on how lovely their cake was and how nice the environment is.

“We always aim to provide our residents with a varied calendar of activities and outings, so the wet weather is no excuse not to go out. If we can’t go to the beach for a day out, we’ll go to the shops or for a coffee if the residents would like to!”

Barnes Lodge is The Abbeyfield Kent Society’s brand new care home in Tudeley Lane, Tonbridge. The home, which opened in October 2016, provides care, compassion and companionship for older people within a homely and friendly environment.
