Celebrations were in full swing at Rangeford Villages for the Queens Platinum Jubilee weekend with residents hanging out the bunting and dusting off their dancing shoes to enjoy a whole host of celebrations.
Award-winning later living specialist, Rangeford Villages, organised a series of Jubilee themed festivities across its sites at Mickle Hill in North Yorkshire and Wadswick Green in Corsham to mark the historical event.
A full programme of entertainment was organised for residents at Mickle Hill including an exhibition of Jubilee themed Arts and Crafts work made by residents and staff, including treasured paintings, wool and needlework, woodwork and pottery. The exhibition will run for five days and will be on display for residents and visitors alike to view.
Throughout the jubilee weekend, residents enjoyed special screenings at the village’s onsite cinema of the popular TV series The Crown, as well as watching the Mickleodeons Choir, Trooping of the Colour, St Paul’s Cathedral Service and a live broadcast of the Jubilee Concert from Buckingham Place. In addition, there was also a Jubilee celebration lunch and festive afternoon tea with vocalist Matt Jones where residents enjoyed a jolly old singalong. The events commenced with an exciting royal themed Treasure Hunt around the village.
Tina Cox, Activities Co-ordinator at Mickle Hill said. “We put together a whole series of activities to make this a truly celebratory occasion. Many of our residents remember the Queen’s coronation, and this is a great opportunity for them to have the chance to get together to share their memories and really enjoy the celebrations together.”
At Wadswick Green in Corsham residents baked cakes and prepared selection of treats which they enjoyed at their very own Jubilee Street Party which included over 100 guests, as well as live music and dancing.
There was also a special onsite Tree Planting Ceremony with a ceremonial plaque to mark the occasion, which involved the villages oldest resident, Captain Roy Travis, aged 96 years old.
Rafael Marques, Village Manager at Wadswick Green commented: “This was a truly momentous, once in a lifetime event and we wanted to do something to mark this special occasion; the street party was a great success and an excellent way for all our residents to come together as a community and celebrate, and the tree planting ceremony was our way of leaving a lasting memory which can be enjoyed by residents for many years to come.”
