Residents and the team at Oak Manor Care Home were joined by friends and family to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III over the past week.
A momentous event in our history, the Coronation of King Charles III and his wife, Camilla, as king and queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. It took place on Saturday 6th May at Westminster Abbey and many of our homes organised celebrations to mark this occasion.
It started off on the special day itself with a delicious afternoon tea after watching the Coronation ceremony on the television. The afternoon tea was extra special as the menu was designed by our residents, all supported by our Head Chef Jocelyn.
We spent a relatively quiet Sunday, listening to music, taking walks in the garden and having tea and cake with loved ones. Our Head Chef Jocelyn made the most magnificent cake to mark the occasion, which was cut by one of our residents.
The rest of the week has been non-stop entertainment. We welcomed back The Singing Gardener. We welcomed KJ and the Catt, who came in to perform their show, ‘A Right Royal Knees Up’. Everyone had the best time with Suzie Q, who sang Coronation themed songs, as well as some of our residents’ favourites.
The celebrations were crowned off with an opportunity to cuddle the lovely teddies specially handmade by Pauline. Everyone had the best time, and our festivities were a wonderful and fitting tribute to the new King and his wife.
