Joyous Jubilee celebrations at Belong Crewe care village took place over the weekend, with customers and families of the not-for-profit dementia specialist marking Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a party of a lifetime.
Amongst an abundance of Union Jack flags, tea and cake, the residents and tenants at the Brookhouse Drive village dressed in their best for a jam-packed bank holiday weekend, featuring right royal garden parties, complete with music from bygone eras, and live entertainment.
Customers were also supported to create their very own signature Jubilee cocktails and had the chance to get crafty by making life-size decorative cut outs of Her Majesty and her beloved corgis. Well-earned cold treats came from a dedicated ice cream van hired for the big party, along with music, dancing and fun as the festivities unfolded.
Jess Butler, experience coordinator at Belong Crewe, said: “We wanted to host the best party ever for everyone to enjoy. Our residents and tenants have loved being involved with the plans, inputting their ideas and sharing their experiences from past jubilees and reminiscing about the Coronation. They’ve loved our Jubilee extravaganza; the activities and entertainment, singing, dancing and making new memories – what a weekend!”
Stacey McCann, chief operating officer at Belong, added: “It’s been a fantastic celebration and to see the happiness in our customers’ faces and the tremendous impact it has had has been wonderful and I’m sure it will be the talk of our villages for some time to come.”
Belong’s celebrations coincide with being chosen to feature in the official publication of Her Majesty The Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Album. Launched on the 5th June, the book commends outstanding individuals and organisations from across the country and the Commonwealth that have had an impact on life in the UK over the past seven decades.
