The staff and residents of Hampton Grove care home in Peterborough had a truly royal time marking the date of The Queen’s 96th birthday on 21st April. We were delighted to welcome Queen Elizabeth II (albeit in cardboard) to join us as we held our ‘right royal tea party’ in her honour. Having her watch over the occasion made the whole day even more special!
Head chef and the hospitality team whipped up a tasty selection of freshly-baked biscuits, pastries and cakes for the occasion, all washed down with pots of tea. Residents took part in a variety of royal–themed events including watching old newsreels and catching up on the official photography from today and over the years.
We all agree she looks as beautiful now as she did in her younger years.
Krzysztof Krzysztofiak, General Manager at Hampton Grove said: “Our residents love a party and they love the Queen so they all enjoyed the tea and cakes and reminiscing about her reign and the many birthday celebrations they have attended in her honour. The Queen is an amazing lady who has been through so much lately so it was a wonderful way to remember her and pay our respects.”
