Friday 8th May was the anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), marking 70 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe.

The occasion was commemorated with events across our homes with residents and staff paying respect and giving thanks to the many servicemen and women who dedicated their lives during the war.

Residents watched Winston Churchill and the Queen deliver their speech and relived the memories from the day’s surrounding the end of the war. Vera Lynn music was played and rooms and people were decorated in 1940’s style.
