To celebrate 64 years since Her Majesty made her Coronation Oath (2 June 1953), the team and residents at Breme Care Home in Providence Road have thrown a high-tea party fit for The Queen herself.
There was bunting and fine china galore, as well fancy cupcakes, finger sandwiches and mouth-watering scones and cream on tiered stands for all to enjoy.
Residents also adorned homemade crowns for the very special occasion.
81-year-old resident Rosemary Clarke said: “It was so lovely exchanging stories – the royal parties are always the best.”
Fellow resident Mary Smith, who is 92, added: “The Royal Family is all about community spirit and we captured community spirit here today.”
Finally, Joan Long, 67, continued: “I had a fabulous day, I loved getting ready for the celebrations and really enjoyed the fruity punch!”
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Helen Barron said: “Our residents adore The Queen, she is such a remarkable lady and we are all so proud of the tremendous work she has carried out across the six decades so we knew we wanted to celebrate her anniversary on the throne, and we did it perfect style!
“We all felt the patriotic power and many of our residents could remember her coronation back in 1953 so it was a joy to hear all their treasured memories.”
