Mountfitchet House celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

Home news

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

Mountfitchet House is inviting friends and family to join them on Thursday 16th March to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As part of the celebrations, the team has organised a sing-along at 11am and a wartime tea dance at 3pm. There will be themed refreshments on offer for guests, to give them a taste of what life was like during wartime. 

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.

Allison Squires, home manager at Mountfitchet House 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.”
