Mildenhall Lodge invites local people to a right royal knees up

May 8th 2018

 

Mildenhall Lodge is opening its doors to the local community for a special celebration to mark the upcoming royal wedding. 

On Saturday 19th May, from 11.30am, the team at the home is inviting local people for a ‘right royal knees up’ and to raise a glass to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 

The home will be adorned with union jack bunting and residents will have their British flags at the ready for a live screening of the wedding. The care team has also organised a British street party and tea party and will be showing the wedding to residents and visitors in the home’s cinema. 

Katy Hughes, home manager at Mildenhall Lodge, said: “Celebrating Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day is not only a wonderful opportunity to bring the community together, but it’s also a great reminiscence activity for residents – particularly for those living with dementia. 

“Many of the residents love to talk about the Queen and her life, so celebrating the marriage of her youngest grandson is a great talking point for us here at Mildenhall Lodge.  

“We’re looking forward to bringing the bunting out once again for a day of celebrations, and we hope the local community will join us in raising a glass to the royal couple!” 

We believe in supporting families, whether they have loved ones living with us at Mildenhall Lodge, or they’re caring for them at home in the community. We run a number of events that local people can come along to for extra help, and we’ve also set up a Carers’ Support Group that meets regularly.
