Residents of Cottingham Care Home Mark Remembrance Ray with the Royal British Legion

The residents of Magnolia House care home in Cottingham had a reflective and respectful Armistice Day, when they were visited by volunteers from the Royal British Legion.

The home, on Hull Road, was given a personal Remembrance service by the local Cottingham Royal British Legion. The Last Post was played, and a two-minute silence was held to allow the residents to honour lost loved ones from the Forces.

The event was held at the home, so that staff and residents who could not attend the Legion’s main service would not miss out on the community’s remembrance proceedings.

Lindsay Altoft, manager at Magnolia House, said: “It was very kind of the Royal British Legion to come to visit us here. We know how important Remembrance Day is to our residents and how much the service means to them.

“We would like to say thank you to the Royal British Legion volunteers for making it such a special event for us.”

Geoff, a resident at Magnolia House, said: “It has been a very nice morning and it is important we remember these events.”
