VE Day celebrations at Brierfield

Brierfield Care Home in Nelson, Lancashire, invited residents and visitors to a commemoration of VE (Victory in Europe) Day.

The home welcomed a guest speaker from Barrowford Armed Forces, who chatted with residents as they shared wartime memories.

Home Manager Joanne Colclough said:

"Our residents really appreciated and enjoyed doing something special for VE Day, and it proved a sociable and interesting occasion all round as one lady resident unexpectedly caught up with an old friend while another heard stories about a mutual friend who had served with our armed forces visitor all those years ago.

"Staff also enjoyed learning more about our residents' past lives - some of the things they have lived through are hard for us to imagine in modern times, but this sort of event brings the memories flooding back and is beneficial for everyone."
