Gold Care Homes Valentines Day celebrations will spread the love


Care staff at one of west London’s leading care homes will be swapping their uniforms for Stetsons and spurs on Valentine’s Day for a country and western themed event.

Drayton Village Care Centre, located in Spring Promenade, West Drayton, is offering its residents and guests the chance to enjoy music form a talented country singer and a Valentine’s Day lunch.

Staff will also offer visitors the chance to get involved in crafting cowboy hats, while some of the lucky ladies in attendance may win a rose from the entertainer.

This all-day event on 14 February 2018 is part of a wider schedule of events being run by Drayton Village’s parent company Gold Care Homes.

Matthew Bowden, Manager at Drayton Village Care Centre, said: “Everyone at Drayton Village is really excited about the upcoming Valentine’s Day event. We have some excellent entertainment lined up who will perform a range of country love songs to get guests in a loving mood.

“We hope people from the local community will join us on the day so that we can share all that our home has to offer.”

Sidcup’s Baugh House another Gold Care Home, will be home to the king of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley this Valentine’s Day.

The home in Baugh Road will play host to a fantastic Elvis impersonator who will cover some of the King’s greatest hits.

“We thought that Valentine’s Day was the perfect chance to host a day when people can come together to forge new friendships.”
