Cheviot Court celebrates another successful Care Home Open Day with South Tyneside Mayor

Home news


There was fun for all at Cheviot Court when it invited the local community in for a day of celebrations with South Tyneside Mayor, Councillor Olive Punchion. 

The team at Cheviot Court welcomed the people of South Shields to enjoy Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative set up to develop lasting relationships between care homes and local communities, and to dispel common myths about care home life.   

The home marked the occasion by throwing a royal-inspired party in honour of the Queen’s 92nd birthday. The team organised a 1940s street party celebration, with a Geordie-inspired buffet prepared by Cheviot Court’s in-house chefs.

Guests also enjoyed a Geordie show, which was created and performed by the residents, as well as a tuneful recital from the residents’ choir.

Louise Damms, home manager at Cheviot Court, said: “We had a fantastic afternoon celebrating Care Home Open Day at Cheviot Court. The residents all really enjoyed marking the Queen’s birthday with a party, and they had a brilliant time putting on the show for their friends and family. 

“Care Home Open Day is all about building bridges with our local community, and showing what life in a care home is really like, so it was fantastic to see so many of our neighbours come along to celebrate. We would like to say a big thank you to Olive Punchion and the people of South Shields for making the day so special.”
