June got off to the perfect start for the whole nation as we celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee with an extra special extended Bank Holiday weekend to mark 70 years on the throne for Her Majesty the Queen. Never needing too much motivation to have a party, a celebration 70 years in the making was the perfect opportunity for each of our homes to put on a fantastic weekend of activities for our residents. You can find out all about what Rosturk House and Peacehaven got up to below!
Getting ready for the celebration of a lifetime, the carers and residents alike kicked everything into gear by giving the homes a bit of a makeover and it wasn’t long before each home was fit for royalty. And it’s just as well as there was plenty of royalty going around Rosturk when the residents broke out all the jewels and gems to take part in a crown-making competition! A few of these creations deserved their place in the Tower of London…
Once the weekend got underway, the party games came out! Thanks to some innovative work from our carers, the residents got stuck into ‘Pin the Tail on the Corgi’ and ‘Ten Queen Bowling’ with the help of a bottle or two of fizz because no celebration would be complete without it! Her Majesty herself even took time out of her incredibly busy weekend schedule to drop by and say hello - honest!
Meanwhile, Peacehaven didn’t just have plenty of sun shining down in the garden, they also had the wonderful Lily stop by to provide that extra sparkle as she entertained all the residents with plenty of tunes to soundtrack their blockbuster garden party. Whether it was the good music, the lovely weather, or the glasses of fizz, the smiles were out all around the home – all captured by Peacehaven’s portable photo booth which everyone just had to get involved with, even the district nurse.
