Staff, residents and family members at Mount House & Severn View Care home in Shrewsbury had the Mayor of Shrewsbury Becky Wall in attendance at their ‘Blitz and Glitz’ Gala Dinner on 6th November, 2023.
Following conversations with the homes’ residents about what they would like to do they requested an early evening event, one that they could invite their loved ones to and get ‘glammed up’ just like they did after the war.
Head Chef Charlotte Mulloy created a special 3 course menu and worked with the whole home team to plan an event to take place around bonfire night, with fireworks to represent the end of war celebrations and music of the era in the lead up to Remembrance Day.
Madam Mayor enjoyed the fine dining experience on the top table alongside Resident Ambassador; May McEntee and several of her fellow residents. Guests were served each course by a team of volunteers from present, and past staff members whilst being entertained by vintage 1940’s signer ‘Bertie Blighty’.
General Manager at Mount House, Coral Edwards said: “It was lovely to have Madam Mayor Becky Wall here as our chef and team showcased their talents. The residents were delighted to meet, and spend time talking to the Mayor and sharing their memories of Shrewsbury. We all had a wonderful time and can’t thank the community enough for all their help and donations, all of which added to the Glitz of our prestigious remembrance event.”
