Jubilee Celebrations Fit for a Queen

Excitement has been running high at Ashcombe House in Worting Road  where residents and staff have been busy making Jubilee-themed decorations in preparation for a weekend of celebrations.

To start the Jubilee Weekend the home hosted a jubilee party in the homes garden, inviting friends and family of the home to come and celebrate with us, being the first time we have been able to do this since the pandemic.  The Home was decorated inside with red, white and blue decorations and bunting, and the homes garden took on the jubilee colours of Purple and silver. With a special Jubilee flag flying high for all to see. Street party tables and a buffet fit for a Queen prepared by Chef Andy King really brought everyone together.

Celebrations continued inside with Singer Anthony Allgood entertaining us with Singing and dancing, and all singing the national anthem. The whole home really came together to give the residents a day to truly remember, celebrating our longest reigning monarch and reminisce about what she means to each and every one of us.

Michelle martin Activities Coordinator at Ashcombe said: “We’ve all had such a brilliant time starting our celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee, it has been such fun.  Our staff and residents love the Queen and so they were all so excited to take part.  It was so lovely to be able to invite our friends and family to come and join us for a proper celebration too.” This is just the start of the celebrations and residents have a packed weekend to look forward to.

Peggy Gary resident at Ashcombe said: “The Queen is an amazing lady, everyone wanted to get involved in the celebrations.  It is remarkable to think she has been on the throne for 70 years, such an achievement!  I can just about remember the Coronation, I was very small but I remember the street party we had then and this was just as much fun.  We all wanted to pay our respects and say thank you for all that the Queen has done for this country. It has been a wonderful day, the food was amazing and the entertainment brilliant I’ve really enjoyed myself”
