Residents at a care home in Bromsgrove have been enjoying a Platinum Jubilee celebration fit for a queen.
Care UK’s Chandler Court, on Recreation Road, has welcomed the community to mark the Queen’s official 70-year milestone by hosting a royal themed garden party and inviting local youngsters, from Castle Nursery, to join the festivities.
Celebrating in true British style, team members at Chandler Court went all out to royally decorate the garden with Union Jack flags, bunting and balloons. Residents were joined by nursery children for an afternoon of outdoor games and creative fun.
To top the afternoon off, residents were treated to a jubilee-themed buffet spread specially prepared for the occasion by the chef, as well as an ice cream van for all to enjoy.
There was also an opportunity for everyone to dance to classic songs from the 1940s through to the swinging 60s, with maintenance team member, Ian Guise, on hand to be DJ for the day.
Vongai Mushinga, Home Manager at Chandler Court, added: “Intergenerational activities are a huge part of life here at Chandler Court, which is why we loved being able to celebrate the jubilee with children from Castle Nursery.
“These relationships can be beneficial for both sides and can provide older people with a sense of purpose and fulfilment. This is the first Jubilee the children have really experienced, and residents loved telling their younger friends all about the traditional celebrations they have enjoyed in their lifetimes and were thrilled to be able to pass these onto the next generation.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Castle Nursery for joining us – we can’t wait to welcome them back for another party very soon!”
