The Camden Show is always a big event on Carrington’s calendar. This year, we were proud to be Champion Sponsor of the show, which is always a great event for the local community. This year, Carrington had two stalls at the show. The first was our information stall, which gave members of the community a chance to chat to some of our friendly staff about the services that Carrington offers, as well as current employment and volunteering opportunities.
The second stall that we had this year was in the Style Pavilion, where we had the opportunity to showcase our famous scones, as well as drinks, lamingtons, and some other sweet treats. We are particularly proud of our first place win in the Country Style Pavilion Design Category. Thanks to all our staff and volunteers who put in so much hard work to make our involvement at this year’s show such a success.
Our residents weren’t left out of the fun! Some of our Werombi Court residents enjoyed a visit to the show on the Friday. From sighting giant pumpkins, to winning prizes at ‘The Clowns’, to eating all sorts of yummy fair food, it was a fun day for all. The dressage events were a sight to see, as were the rosters, chickens, ducks and geese on display. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t let us take the baby chickens home!
Graham was feeling patriotic and got a Rabbitoh’s tattoo (fake of course!), whilst Barry ‘taste tested’ almost every soft serve vendor. Jean and Tony always enjoy the scones with some fresh jam and cream. Maureen purchased some chocolate show bags at her families request- all in all it was a fantastic day out for the residents. Pictured below are some of Werombi Court’s residents.
Grasmere Terrace also brought some of their residents along to check out the horse riding events, the arts and crafts, and some of our scones!
