A LUDLOW care home had a weekend of Remembrance.

Hagley Place held activities over three days.

On Friday there was a service led by Marina Clent, Head of the WI of Clee Hill and Church Warden and then after the service, the Ludlow Air Cadets did a parade, salute and then sat with the residents and talked to them about their time in service.

Then on Saturday the home hosted a successful ‘Indoor Street Party’ with a Live Glenn Miller tribute band and authentic food from the 40’s and a special Remembrance Cake created by Head Chef Zara Griffiths. Residents, staff and the public alike were singing and dancing to the popular tunes from the 40’s

On Remembrance Sunday residents and staff decorated the lounge and invited all of the residents to watch the BBC service together and share their stories.

Claire Harris, General Manager at Hagley Place, said: “We have a number of residents with personal ties to the military and we were proud to have been able to make this a special day for them and all our residents.”

Many of the residents had memories of the Second World War in combat and on the home front.

Michelle Jones, Head of Activities, said: “I am so happy everyone enjoyed the events. It is important to me that everyone feel that this day was honoured with the respect it deserves.”

The home regularly stages events involving the local community.
