Pax a punch!

Round & About

You’re welcome to come along and explore Lord Baden Powell’s former home in Bentley on Sunday, 8th July, where there will be fun for all ages and tastes.

Each year Pax Hill Care Home in Bentley holds a summer fete in aid of a chosen charity with the help of residents who make items for sale and help with stalls on the day. 

This year, the chosen charity is Cancer Research. Everyone is welcome, from 2pm-4pm in the central courtyard, GU10 5NG.

Visitors can also have a look around the home and grounds occupied for more than 20 years by Robert Baden Powell and his wife Olave.

In addition to residents’ contributions, many stalls will offer a variety of items, from vintage gifts and craft ideas to garden goodies. There will be plenty of on offer, including Nepalese street food, barbecue, ice creams, tea and cakes and live entertainment from Hampshire Scouts.

Organisers are hoping for fine weather for this family-friendly event in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. Pax Hill is surrounded by footpaths giving lovely views of the old village of Bentley. Free parking is available in Pax Hill’s grounds and a footpath trail can be accessed from halfway up the drive.

If you are interested in looking at care homes for now or future reference, this is a good day to talk to the people who live at Pax Hill and see what life is like in modern day care.
