There were some stylish and flamboyant hats on display when friends, family and staff celebrated Ascot Ladies Day at Peterhouse retirement complex in Bexhill.

Ascot is one of many annual celebrations held at Peterhouse and is organised by the Friends of Peterhouse, a voluntary group who provided everything from the welcome glass of bubbly, to the funds for everyone to have a little flutter on each race via the volunteer in-house bookie.

Sara Whalley, Director of Operations at Peterhouse, said: “The hat competition caused great excitement. The winner was a resident from Peterhouse who wore a hat adorned with fresh flowers. The competition was judged and announced by the CEO of The National Advertising Benevolent Society which runs Peterhouse.

“Great events like this are a tradition at Peterhouse, everyone gets involved and we have a huge amount of fun. The secret is that we all genuinely enjoy each other’s company.

“In the next few months we have a number of events planned including a Golf Day on our putting green and an Indian Summer Party which staff and residents will plan together – I have no doubt the results will be spectacular.”

Peterhouse is based in the old town in Bexhill behind St Peter’s Church. It has 34 sheltered housing flats, a day centre and a care wing providing residential and nursing care as well as the Sidney Graham Suite which offers respite and post-operative care.
