What Our Residents Say

 

Picture of resident

 

I came here three years ago, and do not regret my decision to give up my flat near Peterborough. Now I am in sheltered housing and enjoy the mix of being alone in my flat and also mixing quite a lot with other residents. The church life is a bonus and the carers are always cheerful and ready to help!

The friends I have made at the Court, and the people who work here have helped to make this wonderful old place my home.  My relations all think I am lucky.

Lady Katherine are delighted to announce the opening of a convenience store for the usage of residents. This will support those who are unable to frequent into the community on a daily basis. It has a nostalgic feel which is already bringing back so many memories for people. Opening daily it will provide all with basic items which are important to those who reside here. Even the sweets are familiar from many years ago.

 

 

HERITAGE WEEKEND

 

FEN END ROAD WEST, TEMPLE BALSALL B93 0AN

SEPTEMBER 9TH – 10TH

During Heritage Weekend the Foundation of Lady Katherine Leveson will open its site at Temple Balsall to the public.

From the main car park on Fen End Road West, walk across the bridge over the pond and on to the Bread Walk. In bygone days this is where the ladies of the Court, known as Dames, walked to collect their bread. The Court, now known as Lady Katherine Housing and Care provides residential care, respite care and sheltered accommodation in single and double rooms. The original Old School Room is also situated here. Guided tours to the Court begin outside the Old Hall.

Lady Katherine Leveson C of E Primary School will also be open to visitors with games in the playground. In the hall you will find an Art Exhibition with works by local artists for sale. Opening times are Saturday 10.30am – 5pm  and Sunday 11.30 – 4pm .

Continuing along the Bread Walk is The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. This is believed to be a Hospitaller Church although there are those who would argue in favour of the Templars. Step inside to appreciate the sheer scale of this beautiful building, the Porritt organ and magnificent stained glass windows.

Adjacent to the Church is The Old Hall, the former Headquarters of the Knights Templar in Warwickshire from the 12th century until the 14th century. Today this timber framed building is encased in brick but once inside, the original timber beams are clearly visible. The Archives and Finds, which were excavated from a cellar in front of the Old Hall, are displayed here. Guided tours of the site start from here on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Saturday from 12 – 5.00pm   Sunday 2.30 – 5.00pm

On Saturday the Autumn Fayre will be held on the Vicar’s lawn. Entertainment includes Morris dancing displays, a Templar re-enactment Group, live music from Birmingham Concert Band, cakes stalls, tombolas, books, bric a brac, refreshments and much more.
 
On Sunday there will tea and cakes on the Vicar's lawn together with some stalls.

 

Evensong begins on Sunday 10th at 6pm sung by the Birmingham Cathedral Choir with a guest preacher.
