We have received confirmation that no further restrictions need to be put in place so we are able to continue with two visits per week per resident. Visits should be pre-arranged and masks should be worn and hands sanitised as normal. Social distancing should be maintained. This will be reviewed on 28th September. An online booking system is now in place and, whenever possible, should be used or you can book by ringing Kirk House within office hours.
The Annual Sale at Kirk House had a slightly different emphasis this year as it was marking 25 years since the home was first opened. Our special guest was Pamela Ballantine who unveiled the plaque which had been made by the residents. Rita Norwood, who has lived in Kirk House since it was first opened, was there to assist Pamela and Rev David Campton (BCM's new Superintendent) and to make sure the job was done right! What a day it was. Lots of laughter, families enjoying time with their loved ones, and good things to eat. Thank you to all those who supported it.
Kirk House staff and residents will be celebrating 25 years of Kirk House on Saturday 8th September 2018 with an extra special Annual Sale in the grounds and buildings of the accommodation. All are welcome to attend and to enjoy the variety of stalls and entertainment which will be found there.

The fun starts at 1pm so why not pop in and join us.
