Solihull Editorial 13th May, 2023   0

EXCITEMENT was in the air at Fountains care home in Shirley where residents and staff have been busy making Coronation-themed decorations and baking up a storm of red, white and blue cakes.

Staff and residents at the home put their heads together and came up with a plan for their celebrations fit for a King.

Over the bank holiday weekend the home held a celebration party with a lovely afternoon tea, along with sparkling refreshments.

Residents families joined in the fun during the day too.

The whole home came together to celebrate our new King and talk about the new era the country is entering.

Rebecca Long, general manager at Fountains said: “We’ve all had such a brilliant time celebrating the Coronation, such a momentous occasion.

“Our staff and residents love the Royals and so they were all so excited to take part.

“It has been a real collaborative process – thinking about how we wanted to celebrate, planning our activities, decorating the home and creating all the party food.

“The live entertainment, was fabulous with the lovely Ian singing some great classics which we all got involved with singing.

“Some of the residents were reminiscing about the Queen’s Coronation and they just about remembered the amazing street party they had then and said this was just as much fun.

“We all wanted to pay our respects to the King and create new memories, it is such an important occasion to mark.”
