We don’t need much of a reason to have a party here at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham, and as its about 4 weeks since they held the last party, they felt the time was right to hols another. What better theme than to have a party based on the songs that made Britain great!
Everyone was invited to the party, as long as they stuck to the dress code of something red, white or blue. With the dining room decked out in Union Jacks in every sport available the party commenced.
The star of the day was entertainer Mr Alan Mason, who is a firm favourite here with the Hallgarth family. He sang songs from the yesteryear and sparked a lot of memories, feet tapping and hands clapping.
Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “A grand afternoon was had by all and Alan took his final bow about four finale songs. Jackie couldn’t believe how many words of the songs she knew.”
