Mill View celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 14th 2017

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

Mill View is inviting people in East Grinstead to join them on Monday 20th March, from 2pm, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As well as taking part in the sing-along, guests will also be able to enjoy a tasty afternoon tea, prepared by the home’s head chef, while listening to a selection of Vera Lynn’s most popular songs.

Residents and the team at the care home will be ensuring visitors are pitch perfect for the rendition of the popular wartime song “We’ll Meet Again”, with lyrics available and tasty treats on hand for all.

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

Amy Pepperrell, customer relations manager at Mill View, 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 written 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 East Grinstead for this special occasion.”
