In honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday, there will be right royal celebration at Highbury New Park on Friday. Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy a garden tea party, and there will be entertainment to help everyone get into the party spirit as well as a tombola and chocolate fountain. All those who drop by will also have the opportunity to meet the Care UK team and take a tour of the care home.

“Opening our doors is also a great opportunity to show what life is really like in a modern care home; and we hope to change any preconceptions people might have while also showing everything Highbury New Park has to offer.
“We have got a fun day of activities planned and are really looking forward to getting behind Care Home Open Day on Friday 17th June and welcoming the people of Islington to be a part of it.”
