Mills Meadow celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 16th 2017

Mills Meadow is gearing up to join a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.

Mills Meadow is inviting friends and family to join them on Monday 20th March to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

Residents will be celebrating the milestone with a slice of birthday cake and a tuneful rendition of Vera Lynn’s popular war-time song “We’ll Meet Again”. Friends and relatives will also be joining in the celebrations.

Marie Reeve, home manager at Mills Meadow 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 look forward to celebrating with family and friends for this special occasion.”
