Staff and residents at Milford House Care Home in Salisbury enjoyed three days of celebrations ‘fit for a King’ over the bank holiday weekend.
The home held several coronation events each day, culminating in ‘The Big Coronation Cream Tea Party & Fête’ on Monday to draw the festivities to an end with a bang. The whole home came together to celebrate our new King and talk about the new era the country is entering.
Gemma Hicks, general manager at Milford House, said: “We’ve all had such a brilliant time celebrating the coronation which was such a momentous occasion for everyone. Our staff and residents were all so excited to take part.
“The weekend activities have been a real collaborative process and everyone has contributed to planning our activities, decorating the home, creating all the party food and organising the stalls and entertainment for our fête which raised money for River Bourne Community Farm here in Laverstock.
“It was so lovely to be able to invite our friends and family to come and join us for the celebrations too, which has added to the buzz around the home.”
Jane, a resident at Milford House, said: “We have just had the most wonderful weekend celebrating our new King. Saturday was magical as we watched the coronation together with a buffet meal in surroundings decorated so wonderfully – the whole day felt really special.
“It has also been lovely to have family and friends come for our Cream Team Party today and despite the rather drizzly weather nothing has dampened our celebrations.”
