This week small groups of gentleman gathered and chatted over a glass of wine or beer, reminisced about the good ol’ days, their fathers, and special moments with their own children.

Several socially distanced groups were held as part of our Father’s Day celebrations, in a pub-style setting – complete with Aussie country tunes, Australian poetry, nibbles and a ‘cold one’ – in each area at Brighton.

Social gatherings like these are great opportunities to help residents strengthen social connections with others of similar interests, form new friendships and for some activities, to remain active.

Charles was grateful for the social event and the opportunity to make a new connection.

“I’m so grateful we were able to do this today – I was able to meet a new friend, Tom,” says Charles.

Tom was also pleased to meet a new friend.

“I had a great time, thank you,” Tom says.

Each gentleman across Brighton received a traditional Father’s Day gift during the celebration – personalised socks, complete with their name on them in a handmade gentlemen’s gift-bag.
