Field Lodge celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 18th 2017

Field Lodge is inviting the community to join a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.

Field Lodge is inviting people in St Ives to join them on Monday 20th March 2017, from 3.30pm, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

Local entertainer, Stacey Wood will be performing all of Vera Lynn’s classic songs to get everyone in the party spirit.

Ahead of the celebration, residents have been hard at work rehearsing the popular war-time song “We’ll Meet Again” accompanied by the Brampton and Wyton Military Wives Musical Director Pat Skinner and some members of the local church choir.

Residents and the team at the care home will be ensuring visitors are pitch perfect for the rendition of the classic song, with lyrics available and tasty treats on hand for all.

Field Lodge will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.

Julie May, customer relations manager at Field Lodge, commented: “We are all looking forward to taking a walk down memory lane and having a good sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s milestone birthday. Singing can be a powerful reminiscence activity, and Vera Lynn has sung a number of iconic songs that many residents are likely to have grown up listening to.

“Even when memories become particularly hard to remember, often music can still be recalled, so a group sing-along can often be very calming for those living with dementia, and can encourage them to talk about memories from their childhood.

“We are thrilled to be joining Care UK care homes across the country and look forward to welcoming the people of St Ives for this special occasion.”
