Residents at Manor House care home have swapped Bargain Hunt for Beethoven, getting into the spirit of the annual classical music concert series with a themed afternoon of celebrations.
Staff at the Little Weighton home laid on an afternoon of fun and frolics including a buffet, cakes, fizz and a proms concert playing in the background. Residents enjoyed a playlist including all the patriotic favourites, joining in with Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.
Staff and residents are looking forward to tuning in to some of the concerts live from the Royal Albert Hall throughout this year’s Proms season.
Nina Nixon, resident at Manor House, said: “We had a lovely time celebrating the start of the Proms. The staff did a brilliant job getting us into the patriotic spirit, and it’s always lovely to have an excuse for a knees-up and singalong!”
Leanne Hatch, care home manager, said: “At Manor House we always look for activities that will capture the imagination of our residents, and bring us all together as a family.
“The residents thoroughly enjoyed listening to the iconic Proms music and reminiscing about the past – making new memories, and recalling the old!”
