The day includes traditional stalls such as a coconut shy, a penalty shoot out, skittles and plant sales as well as the favourite hog roasts and strawberry teas. At the centre of the afternoon is a celebration looking back at the work of Yeldall over the past 12 months.

An ice-cream van, face-painting and a bouncy castle will delight youngsters while Chissock Woodcraft will be showcasing its work through tours and offering a sale of work and bric-a-brac.

The residents, staff and volunteers have spent hours preparing the grounds so everything is ready for Saturday, July 12.

It starts at 1pm. Guests can bring a picnic to enjoy in the grounds or buy a hog roast.

Stalls open at 1.30pm, with something for all ages.

From 3pm, a celebration takes place in the marquee, while the strawberry tea will take place from 4.30pm. The strawberries have been supplied by Gray’s Farm in Wokingham.

Sue Hedger, Supporter Relations Manager for Yeldall Manor, said: “The Celebration in the marquee is always the highlight of the day, with praise to lift the roof and testimonies that will touch your heart, as well as time to remember and thank God for His faithfulness to us.

Yeldall Manor is on Blakes Lane, Hare Hatch near Twyford. Parking is available on site. If using a SatNav use the postcode RG10 9TA.
