Royal Ascot Ladies Day at Kingfishers

Residents of Kingfishers care home in New Milton may not have been able to attend Royal Ascot ‘Ladies Day’ in person, but that didn’t stop them donning their favourite hats and dresses for the occasion.

The third day of Royal Ascot is commonly known as Ladies Day, when race-goers’ show off stylish and sometimes elaborate headwear and outfits.

At Colten Care’s outstanding-rated Kingfishers, residents including Wendy Webber, Joan Hales, Florence O’Dell and Bunty Patrick were clear winners when it came to tasteful elegance.

Winning in the fashion stakes: Joan Hales was one of Colten Care’s Kingfishers residents to celebrate Royal Ascot Ladies Day. Joan opted for a fashionable fascinator to complement her look.

She said: “I love hats and miss wearing them. It’s just lovely to dress up and celebrate Ladies Day.”

Wendy Webber chose a straw hat to wear with her floral dress and rose corsage.

While Florence O’Dell and Kingfishers Companionship Team member Christine Holliday looked as pretty as a picture in prints and pastels.

Kingfishers Companionship Team Leader Rose Arcellana said: “It was a beautiful day to celebrate Royal Ascot and all our ladies looked fantastic.

“We didn’t leave the gentlemen out though; We had competitions to name our own Ascot horses and our chef made scones for an afternoon tea. A fabulous day was had by all.”
