Care home residents celebrate Her Majesty’s 70-year reign

Residents at Colten Care’s New Forest care homes went all out to enjoy themselves for the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee.

Amid Union Jacks, dancing and singing, Outstanding-rated Kingfishers in New Milton and Woodpeckers in Brockenhurst were among those staging festive ‘street parties’ in honour of the occasion. 

Kingfishers residents Terry Brown and Polly Walker spoke of the fun they had.

Terry said: “Thank you all for a memorable afternoon. Everyone enjoyed the special occasion, great weather too!”, while Polly commented: “I had an amazing time, lots of singing and dancing. I enjoyed the cake too, so yummy!”.

Woodpeckers residents welcomed a visit by a shire horse called Guinness sporting a patriotic red, white and blue mane braiding and ear bonnet.

The Jubilee buzz began weeks before the extended Bank Holiday weekend with residents making themed artworks and decorations.

And in the gardens of all 21 Colten Care homes across the south, commemorative Jubilee trees were planted as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty.
