Jubilee fever grips Station House

May 31st 2012

No one could accuse residents and staff at Station House of not throwing themselves whole heartedly into the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

We had a fun filled month of activities which included a commemorative tree planting on June 1st  with special quests Edward Timpson MP , Rev Steve Clapham and Wistaston Green school whose year two pupils created  a striking textile collage for our reception area.

Families of residents and some local businesses  were also invited and after a brief service and refreshments each child   received a goodie bag containing a commemorative mug , sweets and a jubilee card.

Other activities included reminiscing about the last 60 years, remembering everything from food prices  to the Royal Family and how we celebrate our jubilees.

Residents made a card for the Queen, which was sent to Buckingham Palace.

There was a colouring competition for families , staff and residents with  prizes for the winners  .

Our active living co-ordinator Paula Chesworth made a royal guard, beefeater and a Care UK  pearly queen with residents and families.

Hope House Charity shop lent us an outfit  and BHS  lent us a manikin  which we  dressed up as the Queen for our display. Bunting and the British flag were on display and each resident   received a card of the special day as a keepsake.

A  Jubilee party was held on Sunday 3rd June with quest entertainer Robert Burton accordionist / singer.


At Station House you can expect a warm welcome from the moment you step through the door.
