Residents from Hallgarth Care Home in Durham celebrated Dame Vera Lynn aka ‘The Forces Sweetheart’ 100th birthday last week with a very fitting tribute.

Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “Many of our residents aren’t far behind Dame Vera’s 100 year celebrations, and decided they wanted to mark the occasion with some movement and music therapy.

“Residents, relatives and friends were invited to join in the class. We had an afternoon full of feet tapping, hands clapping and pom-pom rustling as everyone sang and danced to the music. Towards the end of the session out came the Union Jack flags which were waved along to Dame Vera’s greatest hits including ‘Wish me Luck’, ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’. Vera would have been very proud.

“Everyone at Hallgarth wished you a very happy birthday Vera.”

Residents from Amelia House Care Home in York have been sampling the menus from eateries close to the home.

The residents have needed very few excuses to make the most of the recent nice weather whilst enjoying the culinary delights on offer from local cafes and pubs.

David Ramage, Home Manager, explained: “The residents here at Amelia House love nothing more than getting out and about. Just because they live in a care home doesn’t mean they can’t do things they enjoy. They’ve enjoyed fish and chips at the Wetherby Whaler and a lovely drink at the Lysander Arms. Now the warmer weather is approaching, I see these outings becoming a regular thing.”
