Mods and rockers culture celebrated at Bowes House community fun day

October 12th 2018


Bowes House is welcoming the local community for a 1960s celebration and open day on Saturday 20th October. 

Between 2pm - 7pm, Bowes House will open the doors to the care home to celebrate the 1960s and the ‘Mods and Rockers’ style. 

Visitors are invited to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a vintage static bike display and classic 1960s live music from The Vesperettas, Demitru and The Hat Man. There will also be a variety of stalls to browse, from arts and crafts, to local farm produce. 

The Mayor, Councillor Nigel Coltman, will join in the celebrations, and to top off the day, guests will be treated to a delicious selection of home-made cakes and pastries, soup of the day and freshly baked rolls, specially prepared by Bowes House’s chefs.

Helena Barrow, homemanager at Bowes House, said: “Here at Bowes House, we feel it is important to build a strong relationship with the local community and we’re delighted to be welcoming local people to our 1960s celebration. 

“Our theme this year is sure to bring back memories, with many residents bringing up their families in the 1960s – I’m sure many of them will take the opportunity to remember their younger years, and maybe even sport a leather jacket or pompadour haircut. 

“We have a fun-filled day of activities planned for the residents, team members and the community, and are looking forward to seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces as they embrace our Mods and Rockers theme.”
