Correspondent 11th Jun, 2017

THERE will be plenty of fun on offer next Friday, June 16, when Bromsgrove’s Breme Care Home holds its annual open day.

The home on Providence Road will open its doors to the community from 10.30am until 5pm.

There will be refreshments, a performance from a magician at 10.30am and live music from 2pm.

Residents have been busy making decorations and there will be plenty of refreshments.

Breme’s activities leader Helen Barron said: “Our residents love a good celebration and particularly enjoy it when people from their community give up a little of their free time to come and join them, so please come along and create some special memories with us.”

The day also marks the fifth annual Care Home Open Day, when homes nationwide open their doors and welcome people to share a special day with their care teams and local residents.

The theme for this year’s event is friendship.

Meanwhile, residents at Breme Care Home baked up a storm to as part of a celebration of the anniversary of HM The Queen’s Coronation.

To celebrate 64 years since Her Majesty was crowned, which was on June 2, 1953, they held a high-tea party fit for The Queen.

There was bunting and fine china galore, as well as fancy cupcakes, finger sandwiches and scones and cream on tiered stands to enjoy.

Activities leader Helen Barron said: “Our residents adore The Queen, she is such a remarkable lady and we are all so proud of the tremendous work she has carried out across the six decades so we knew we wanted to celebrate her anniversary on the throne, and we did it in perfect style.

“We all felt the patriotic power and many of our residents could remember her coronation back in 1953 so it was a joy to hear all their treasured memories.”
