Care Home Group Celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee

Residents at Whitebriars Whitecliff, Whitebeach and the Coast Care Centre Residential and Nursing Homes, specialist dementia care based in Bexhill, and St Leonards, East Sussex, celebrated our Queens Platinum Jubilee in style.

The garden parties held at each home were particularly special as this was the first time family and friends were able to freely join their loved ones in the garden and be together as a large group again.

The Mayor of Bexhill, Paul Plim attended the Whitebriars party in Bexhill on June 2nd.

Residents created fabulous wall murals, photo booths, a golden throne and wall art for the garden parties in the lead up to the event held to celebrate this momentous occasion.

A traditional Cream Tea was served with processco and English tea. Local entertainer Jessica Wellard provided the live music at each event.

Members of the Coast Care team shared “seeing everyone together makes me feel so emotional and proud”. Another said “thanks for all the staff who brought in such delightful and well behaved children to the party, the residents LOVED seeing them”

One resident recalled, “This reminds me of me of when my wife and I arranged a street party, this is a fantastic”.

Activities Co-ordinator’s Poppy Bellchambers and Lorna Donaldson said “I felt quite emotional when seeing all the relatives come through the doors into our gardens at all of the homes. It was just so amazing to finally see all families reunite with their loved ones and  celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee together in Coast Care style”. “After two years of no outside entertainment or family gatherings, it was so lovely to get together to celebrate such a moment in history”.

Lynda and Kevin Dewhurst, the owners of Coast Care Homes said, “Our staff team and residents have been so excited to once again welcome family and friends to a celebration event. It has been a long two years and it was fabulous to hear lots of laughter and singing in the gardens. We hope this is the first of many fun afternoons where residents and their guests can enjoy being together again.”
