Dancing stars have visited a Sanctuary Care home in Telford as they get set to embrace Silver Sunday.
This Sunday (2 October), between 2pm and 4pm, older people from the local community are invited to Lake View Residential Care Home in Brookside Avenue, where the team and residents will host a 1940s Land Girls themed tea dance.
Silver Sunday is a national day celebrating older people, where local communities and organisations host free events to help combat loneliness and reduce isolation.
Lake View, which provides residential care and dementia care, will be throwing open the doors to host a 1940s themed day, with live music and a delicious high tea menu for everyone to enjoy, with a variety of finger sandwiches and cakes.
Getting toes tapping
To get in the dancing spirit, residents invited youngsters from the Carmichael School of Dance and Theatre Arts into the home last week to teach them a step or two ahead of the special celebration. They will also be performing on the day.
Connie Phillips said: “The children were great; they looked beautiful in their costumes.”Fellow resident Muriel Millington added: “The children looked amazing! “I am really looking forward to our Land Girls tea dance as I use to be one.”
Join us on the day
The home’s activities leader Clare West said: “Our residents are very excited about welcoming new faces from the community along to embrace a day which celebrates the older generation. We would love to see older people from our community coming along to enjoy a special afternoon with us.”Venue: Lake View Residential Care Home, Brookside Avenue, Brookside, Telford TF3 1LB.
