BROMSGROVE residents were out in force flying their union jacks high to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

On Thursday (April 21)the town’s people marked the milestone with singing dancing and reminiscing about Her Majesty’s coronation.

Breme Care Home, on Providence Road, marked the birthday with an abundance of decorations, nostalgic music and a street party which was all topped off with a cake made by the residents to celebrate the occasion.

Activities leader, Helen Barron, said: “The residents had a wonderful day. it was really lovely.

“They vividly remembered back to the street parties which took place for the Queen’s coronation.

“The whole street would be closed and everybody would have a huge party with entertainments and music.”

Resident Doreen Wyers said: “It was the best I have been to in a long, long time.

“It was such a lovely day.”

Heathbrook House Nursing Home, on Worcester Rd, were graced with the presence of the Queen herself, at least in cardboard form, with a life size cut which took pride of place during their celebrations.

Staff and residents at St Johns Court also got in the spirit and donned their best attire on Thursday to join the Queen on her special day.

Lickey End Playgroup also baked up a storm for the Queen’s birthday with special cakes alongside the themed decorations.
