Hartford Care celebrates Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in true regal style
The flags were flying and corks were popping as Hartford Care’s residential care and nursing homes celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in real Royal fashion.
There were garden and street parties, barbecues and family gatherings as our ladies, gentlemen and teams got together with their loved ones to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years as our magnificent monarch.
There was dancing in the streets at Bethel House in Barton-on-Sea where their spectacular street party featuring classic vehicles including a tractor was attended by their neighbours in Beach Avenue as well as friends and family.
Singing and dancing to the Spencer Duo was the highlight of the garden party at The Laurels & Pine Lodge while Newland House’s garden was also transformed into a disco when residents’ families joined their loved ones for a party.
Malden House in Sidmouth held a dog show as their main royal event, where ten delightful dogs impressed the team of judges, comprising three residents, who chose a cockapoo called Juno as the best in show.
At the Elms in Bembridge, a Queen of Hearts tea party included a wonderful Mad Hatter hat and some delicious treats such as jam tarts and platinum pudding.
Ashley Grange in Downton held a family barbecue and later, the ladies and gentlemen were treated to a beautiful Union Jack celebration cake as they watched the Trooping of the Colour. A barbecue was also the main event of Burnham Lodge’s celebration and not even a rain shower could dampen the enthusiasm for the celebrations.
Springfield Nursing Home in Shanklin also had a sensational garden party with a high tea, after which their talented care assistant Bethan sang some of the residents’ favourite songs.
West Cliff Hall in Hythe also held a garden party with music and dancing, a cake stall and a raffle raising money for their local charity, the Honey Pot Children’s Charity.
Afternoon tea in the garden was served at Tegfield House in Winchester and Belford House in Four Marks where families and friends joined our ladies and gentlemen for suitably Royal celebrations.
Boulters Lock in Maidenhead enjoyed a tea party, music and a Royal quiz to see who knows the most about the Queen. Stokeleigh in Bristol invited their neighbours and friends to join them for a garden party while at Woodlands House in the New Forest, residents from its Knit and Natter Group made some beautiful red, white and blue decorations to adorn the care home. Woodlands then had a spectacular Jubilee picnic to which family and loved ones were invited.
The ladies and gentlemen at Hartford Court in Portsmouth enjoyed music and dancing to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, one of the highlights being the planting of a rose in their wonderful garden to commemorate this special occasion.
It has been a fantastic week of celebrations at Hartford Care: thank you to our incredible teams for organising the events and making so many special memories as we all saluted and paid tribute to The Queen.
