Residents Entertaining Residents at

Cavell Gardens

We are so fortunate at Cavell Gardens to have a group of talented residents within our midst who contribute to our entertainment schedule through a number of regualr concerts and sing-alongs over the evenings, weekends and on special occasions.

This is our opportunity to  thank the following people for their contribution to enhancing the lives of others through their music. Cavell Gardens salute you all!

Bernadette [sorry not in action] being thanked by founders John & Shirley Svoboda after she entertained them on piano at their 50th Wedding Anniversary tea.


Our favourite outing of the year did not disappoint; the Ambleside Picnic was another success with 30 residents joining in on festivities. The weather was superb yet again and despite a stiff and rather fresh breeze coming off the ocean in the morning we were soon extremely thankful for the shade the trees provided later on in the day.

Our lunch of poached salmon was excellent and was enjoyed by not just those on the picnic but everyone who opted to stay at home too. Bocce and a walk on the seawall helped work off our over indulgence before heading home late afternoon.

I would very much like to thank our wonderful team of staff & volunteers who helped make the day so memorable and run so smoothly. Also to Marquise hospitality our catering company who always go out of their way to provide us with a veritable feast.

I hope you all enjoy the photos.

The day was made even more special having Cavell Gardens Founder, Shirley (R) and daughter Marie join us.
