We were delighted that friends and family, of all generations, could join us to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.
Our residents had a fantastic time! Our amazing staff really went to town on the decorations and activities, to make it a memorable occasion for everyone.
Lasting memories made at Barton Lodge
Our residents loved getting fully involved in the preparations for the King’s Coronation day. We all sat down to make decorations together, including beautiful flowers, paper chains and a God Save the King poster. We also created some lovely wall art to decorate our home, using sponges to paint flowers in the traditional British colours, red, white and blue.
The ladies had a pampering session to get ready for the big day, having their nails painted in patriotic colours.
On the day, we all got together to watch the Coronation, our residents, family and friends were treated to a lavish afternoon tea. The tables were decorated with Union Jack table cloths and the cake stands were topped with beautifully knitted crowns. There was a delicious array of sweet treats, with scones topped with cream and jam, cupcakes, chocolate eclairs and so much more!
Our wonderful volunteer, Tracy, made a sensational Coronation-themed red, white and blue tiered cake, complete with cupcakes topped with the special Coronation emblem. For us all to enjoy while watching the Coronation, it was delicious!
Our residents also enjoyed a traditional British lunch of fish and chips or Coronation quiche and were delighted to have their photos taken with King Charles III and Queen Camilla (cardboard cutouts) to mark the occasion.
Special memories at Woodley Grange
Our staff at Woodley Grange did us proud with a spectacular balloon arch, with red, white and blue balloons. As well as matching Union Jack banners, bunting, plates, cups, napkins, table cloth and flower garlands.
Our residents shared a lovely feast with their friends and family, with delicious sandwiches, quiche and sweet treats.
To make lasting memories, the residents had lots of fun taking selfies, with props and Union Jack hats. Our youngest guests enjoyed having a go at playing croquet and hook a duck out on our lovely lawn. We had great entertainment and a Pimms trolley that everyone loved!
We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate King Charles III Coronation! We had a wonderful time and hope you did too! Also a special thank you to our wonderful staff who went above and beyond to mark the occasion.
