With the jubilee fast approaching, staff at a Croydon based care home will be using their historic garden to host a street party picnic.
The venue, Wilderness Gardens is a seven-acre historic garden situated within MHA Hall Grange, a care home that offers residential and dementia care for up to 86 people.
The party will take place on Saturday 4 June from 12pm, with staff, residents and family members of the home invited as well as members of the community.
There will be an outdoor hymn service to kick the celebrations off and the party will also include a performance from the Croydon Brass Band.
Steve Thompson, commissioning and partnerships manager for the Wilderness said:
“The street party is a great way to engage with the community and celebrate something which is unique and may never happen again.
“It was at the request of residents at the home which prompted us to arrange the party and we are very happy with how the plan is coming along.
“A lot of them were asking us what we will be doing for the jubilee and that’s how the idea came about.
“So far we have sold more than 70 tickets, and we are confident of selling at least 100 in total.
“The ticket fee will help to cover our costs as this is a break even event.
“For those who are unable to attend we will be live streaming the service on our Facebook page.
“Hopefully, it’s going to be a great event, in a beautiful location and we are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible joining in with us to celebrate.”
