There will be live music, toe-tapping, hand clapping and swinging sixties finery when a Sanctuary Care home in St John’s, Worcester celebrates Silver Sunday.
On Sunday 7 October, between 2pm and 4pm, older people from the local community and their families are invited to Juniper House Residential Care Home in Oak View Way (off Bromyard Road), where the team and residents will be hosting a swinging sixties tea dance.
Live music, fancy dress and homemade cakes
The home is throwing open the doors, with residents and the team welcoming the community to join them for a live ukulele performance. There will also be a delicious high tea menu for everyone to enjoy, with a variety of finger sandwiches and cakes.
There will also be fun props and psychedelic prints, when the team step back in time as they dress to impress in themed attire for the rolled back occasion.
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Val Murphy (pictured) said: “Silver Sunday is such a special day – it is all about our wonderful residents and older people in the local community - and the contribution they make and have made over the years. In our opinion that should be celebrated in style, so please do join us for what promises to be a fabulous afternoon.”
The address for those wishing to attend is 2 Oak View Way (off Bromyard Road next to St John’s Medical Centre), St John’s, Worcester WR2 5FJ.
