Fornham House enjoys drone flight experience

15th February 2017

Residents at Fornham House care residence in Fornham St Martin, enjoyed an extra special ‘Love in in the Air’ Valentine’s event this year, which included a drone flight above the home.

Guests and residents watched an aerial drone display by Felixstowe’s ‘Time Flize’, which involved a drone demonstration before an aerial flight over Fornham House, which was live-streamed into the home to allow everyone to enjoy the amazing rural scenery above and beyond the home.

The event is part of the home’s varied activities programme and aims to provide an enjoyable and memorable morning for residents, as well as an opportunity for members of the community to learn more about the home.

Daphne Burnett, a resident at Fornham House care residence enjoyed watching the spectacle; comments Daphne: “The weather was very kind to us and we greatly enjoyed seeing the flight taking place – we all gathered in the lounge and enjoyed tea while watching it on a large screen.  We saw our home and its grounds, the Fornham villages and even the sugar factory in the far distance. I could have watched it for longer!”

The drone flight was managed by ‘pilot in command’ Mick Richardson from Time Flize who guided the hi-tech equipment into the sky.   The flight took in the local countryside and went up to almost 400ft, offering residents and guests a unique perspective of the local countryside during the first glimpse of the spring sunshine.

Irina Catanescu, Manager of Fornham House said: “The Love is in the Air event is just one of a number of community-focused events planned at Fornham House during 2017, all of which invite the local community into the home.  A dog show is planned in April and the Fornham annual village fete, which is for all three Fornham villages, will be taking place in the grounds of Fornham House on 1 July 2017. More details will follow soon!”
