Special socially-distant VE Day celebration is held at care home

by Danielle Thompson (May 2020)

RESIDENTS and staff at the Glade Residential Care Home in Birkdale celebrated VE Day with a very special socially-distanced garden party.

The party, which was in line with current guidelines, was for residents and staff only and gave everyone an opportunity to get out and enjoy the sunshine to the backdrop of music and great food including a commemorative cake made by the home’s chef Catherine Thompson.

Registered manager Lynsey Mylrea said: “It has naturally been a really difficult time for all of our residents and staff of late. It has been particularly hard for our residents who have been unable to have visits from their families, so for us to be able to celebrate with them what was obviously such a poignant day in this way was really special.”
