Blenheim Court Care Home Goes Above and Beyond with Coronation Festivities

8th May 2023

Blenheim Court Care Home in Liss, Hampshire, celebrated King Charles III's coronation in style with a week of coronation festivities leading up to the big day.

The coronation of King Charles III was a historic event for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms, and Blenheim Court Care Home ensured that their residents were able to enjoy the festivities in a safe and enjoyable way. The day was full of anticipation and excitement, with Union Jack flags being waved and colourful bunting decorating the home and gardens. Despite the British weather not living up to expectations, the residents were determined to show their British spirit, with many braving the elements and taking part in the celebrations outside.

The care home held a fancy-dress competition, decorated the home with balloon displays and bunting, and enjoyed plenty of royalty-themed food and drinks. The celebrations culminated in a hearty BBQ, classic English puddings, and a glass of Pimm's on the weekend of the coronation, followed by afternoon tea and dancing in the home's bistro.

Deputy Manager, Kelly Bessey surprised everyone and sang a ‘It’s got to be perfect’, acapella style and residents and team members joined in.

Home Manager, Samantha Booty, praised the team for their hard work, saying, "Our team and residents really pulled together to make this a memorable event. It's important to us that our residents feel connected to current events, and the coronation was a perfect opportunity to celebrate together."

One of the residents thanked the Blenheim Court team, saying, “It is quite amazing the celebrations you can put on for the residents and we can always rely on Blenheim Court to put on a good show. We thank you all and appreciate it takes the whole team to make an event like this be successful.”

Overall, it was a day for everyone to remember, and Blenheim Court Care Home proved once again that they can always be relied on to put on a good show.
