Residents At Wilsmere House Celebrate Indian Day

Staff and residents at Wilsmere House got the flags out and celebrated Indian Independence Day in style by hosting a ranch inspired party Indian traditional dancing and Indian food on 15th August 2021.

Many residents have visited India and some have family living there so Indian Independence Day was a great excuse to reminisce about previous trips and go on virtual tours to favourite places such as New Delhi, Kolkata etc. Residents enjoyed movies from the Bollywood as well as dancing to playlists including Bollywood songs. Our home was decorated with themed flags and bunting and we all enjoyed watching Indian cultural ceremonies.
