St George’s Day indoor street party at Teesside care home

AN INDOOR street party marked St George’s Day at a Teesside care home.

 

Bunting, Union Jack flags and hats, decorated cakes and a sing-along all helped celebrate the patron saint of England at The Beeches Care Home, on Green Lane, Stockton-on-Tees.

 

Residents took part in an arts and crafts session to create the English flag bunting. They also used icing sugar and other toppings to decorate themed cupcakes.

A buffet of sandwiches, crisps and hot drinks was also laid out for the occasion.

 

Singing along to classics from Dame Vera Lynn, Doris Day, The Beatles and ABBA got everyone into a party mood. A group rendition of “Que Sera Sera” had both staff and residents singing at the top of their voices.

 

Resident Sheila Bradley said: “You’ve outdone yourself with this street party. I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s been such a lovely afternoon.”

 

Lena Evenden, who also lives at the home, added: “It’s been so nice to sit and have a chat with a cup of tea and also have a sing-along.”

 

And fellow resident Marian Knightly said: “I have enjoyed this afternoon. It’s been a nice change. I would definitely join in again when we hold the next street party.”

 

Jess Roth, activities coordinator at The Beeches Care Home, said: “It was lovely to see all the residents smiling and singing along, as well as chatting to other residents they wouldn’t necessarily see on a day to day basis.

 

“It has been a really enjoyable afternoon seeing everyone so happy. It’s really made my day.”
