Liberation Day at L’Hermitage and Beaumont Villa

Liberation Day is a very special day in the Channel Islands and for our residents and team here at L’Hermitage Care Home and Beaumont Villa in St Peter, Jersey.

It is a day of remembrance of the time during World War Two when German forces occupied Jersey and commemorates the Islands’ freedom from German Occupation after five years. The celebrations are not just about not forgetting the past and thanking those who fought but also about the joy of freedom, plentifulness and family life.

As always, we could not let this special occasion go without marking it with an event so on 9th May this year, we planned to once again celebrate in grand style. Out came the bunting and with lots of enthusiasm we set about decorating our home and preparing for a wonderful day.

Once that day arrived, lots of fun was had by all and our Head Chef didn’t disappoint with a superb and very delicious Afternoon Tea, including all our residents and team’s favourites and some fabulous cakes.

Entertainment was provided by a great local group called Foolish Things who sang a repertoire of songs across the ages and encouraged everyone to join in a good old sing-a-long. This brought back memories for those who were on the Island during the occupation and those who had been transferred off the Island to the mainland.

It was great to open our doors and welcome residents, families and friends to celebrate this occasion with us and we all had a fabulous time.

At L’Hermitage care home we provide residential and nursing care for up to 66 elderly people. Beaumont Villa provides specialist dementia care for up to 24 elderly residents. Located within the grounds of L’Hermitage Gardens Retirement Village, in St Peter on Jersey, our purpose-built homes represent our commitment to delivering outstanding care.
