Riverside Place mark D-Day with service

Riverside Place DDay

The residents and team at Riverside Place Care Home in Ware marked D-Day and the 80th anniversary with a poignant service, paying tribute to the brave veterans who served during World War II.

Everyone took the opportunity to reminisce and put their memories onto a display, we held a service where we read poems and lit tealights to mark the occasion.

Our chefs prepared a fish and chips lunch and we paid tribute to our very own D-Day veteran Dennis a resident at our home.

One resident commented “those poor boys, giving their lives for us to know freedom.”

Although it was a solemn day it was important to everyone that we marked it so that they could show their respects and honour those who served.
