Residents of a Rugby nursing home have celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday in style with a special garden party.
Staff at Willow Tree Nursing Home dressed in the fashions of the decade when Her Majesty was born, which saw the event go from roaring Twenties to roaring success.
Families joined the residents of the home for champagne, cake and classic tunes from local singer Eleanor Mattley, who performed wartime hits such as We’ll Meet Again and Roll Out The Barrel.
The gardens of the 47-room home in School Street were decked out in patriotic red, white and blue bunting.
Trisha Judge, home manager at Willow Tree, said: “It was an amazing day and great for all our residents and their families to come together to celebrate such a momentous event in our history, the 90th birthday of The Queen.
“I want to thank all our staff for pulling out all the stops to make it such a success. It was a milestone event that will live long in the memory.”
