Always keen to celebrate important milestones and events, the people and staff from Orchard’s 23 Care Homes in the North of England and Midlands, brought out their best china and decked their homes with bunting to mark the coronation of King Charles III.
With some remembering celebrations of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in 1953, the decorations and celebrations brought back fond memories of street parties and plenty of tea and cakes of a bygone era. Adding a bit of vintage style to the King’s celebrations, the homes enjoyed some classic dancing and singing performances of golden musical favourites, afternoon tea, street parties and even a ‘visit’ from ‘King Charles III himself at Lansbury Court, Sunderland – as a life-size art display graced the entrance.

Hayden Knight, CEO, Orchard Care Homes says: “The people of Orchard love a celebration and our team of care staff are always working hard to deliver original, enjoyable activities and events cross our homes. The Coronation plans have been in the works for several weeks across our regions, and I’m so proud of the effort that everyone has put in to make this such a memorable occasion for all.”
