Staff and residents at the home put their heads together and came up with a plan for their celebrations fit for a Queen, and the whole home came together to celebrate the country’s longest reigning monarch and reminisce about what she has meant to them.
Over the bank holiday weekend residents, staff, friends and families celebrated the Platinum Jubilee in style with a garden party, which was blessed with perfect weather.
Family and friends were made welcome, as well as members of the local community who went along to celebrate.
Everyone tucked into an appetising array of cakes and snacks with plenty of tea, coffee, cold drinks and ice cream. Entertainment was provided by The Noreen-Marie Geddes dancing school and the Travelling Ukes who played a selection of much-loved songs.
Aileen Alberts, Fordmill general manager, said: “Our staff and residents love the Queen and so they were excited to take part. It was so lovely to be able to invite our friends and family to come and join us for a proper celebration too.”
