Residents at three care homes in Suffolk have been enjoying Platinum Jubilee celebrations fit for a queen.
At Mildenhall Lodge, residents enjoyed music from Charlie Chaplin, Glastonbury Court hosted a red, white and blue themed extravaganza, while Davers Court opened a brand-new sensory garden to commemorate the occasion.
Residents at the homes have also spent time reminiscing about their own memories of jubilee celebrations gone by, including 85-year-old Margaret, from Mildenhall Lodge, who remembers the coronation.
She said: “I spent the day in Aldershot, and we had a party in the gardens. We sang the national anthem and the celebrations went on all through the night, it was fantastic.”
Deepa Reju, Home Manager at Mildenhall Lodge, added: “We had a fantastic time with the Mildenhall family having a right royal knees-up to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
“It’s been a busy 70 years for the royals, with big birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and new additions to the family – conversations about the Queen are never too far from our lips here at Mildenhall Lodge. Many residents remember her coronation too, so it was great to be able to share those memories and reminisce.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to the relatives who joined us on the day and raised a glass to the Queen – we hope to welcome everyone again soon!”
