VE Day celebrations at Puddingstone Grange
During the current lockdown with all care homes in isolation from visitors to protect the residents and care staff, events and activities in care homes have required a different approach, with plenty of outside the box thinking during these uncertain times. One thing that is for certain are the events and activities across Avante Care & Support’s care homes have not stopped and VE Day celebrations were certainly not going to be missed.
The VE Day celebrations at Puddingstone Grange were a huge success and were opened by vintage style singer Alice, who delivered a beautiful socially distanced performance to her audience singing all of the war time classics by Dame Vera Lynn and Doris Day’s Secret Love, followed by other war time classics, ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and ‘Knees up Mother Brown’.
Pauline Hill, Activity Coordinator said, ‘We spent the whole afternoon in the garden celebrating, enjoying the sunshine and entertainment. Staff dressed up in clothing typical of the era. It was heart-warming to watch the residents dance and laugh all afternoon, a true Victory for Britain celebration!’
