Mildenhall Lodge celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

Home news

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

Mildenhall Lodge is inviting people in Mildenhall to join them on Monday 20th March from 11am to strike a chord for the forces sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As part of the celebration, entertainment will be provided by Lily and Lace Music Hall who will perform 1940s hits for guests.

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

Katy Hughes, home manager at Mildenhall Lodge 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 welcoming the people of Mildenhall for this special occasion.”
