A Sanctuary Care home in Hersden was feeling the patriotic power for St George’s Day.
The team and residents at Meadow View Residential Care Home in Blackthorn Road celebrated our patron saint with a good-old-fashioned sing-along at an all red and white vintage tea-party.
All things red and white
In keeping with the annual holiday, the home was adorned with themed decorations in red and white including flags that residents rolled up their sleeves to make out of tissue paper and paint.
Residents also enjoyed an abundance of English desserts from homemade Victoria sponge to scones, strawberries and clotted cream.
“…what better way to celebrate…”
95-year-old resident Charles Murray said: “I really enjoyed celebrating St Georges Day, the treats were marvellous.”
Fellow resident Daphne Cheshire, who is 89 years old added: “It was lovely to enjoy some traditional English cakes, especially as I really do like cake.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s manager Matt Wood said: “Many of our residents have celebrated St George’s Day for several decades, so we wanted to bring a slice of the celebrations for this patriotic occasion into the heart of the home and what better way to celebrate than with music and delicious food.”
