VE Day celebrations at Standon Hall

The residents of Standon Hall enjoyed an action packed schedule on Friday 8th May as they celebrated the 70th anniversary of VE Day in style.

In the morning, they watched the DVD of ‘60 Glorious Years of the Queen’, which included archive footage from VE Days gone by, as well as listening to wartime music as the morning refreshments were served.

In the afternoon, the Eccleshall Singers arrived to provide live entertainment singing classic tunes from the post-war era. Whilst there, the group also observed a three-minute silence with everyone at the home.

After the performance it was time for an impromptu party for one resident’s 80th birthday, before a celebration tea for all. Everyone agreed it was a lovely, busy day and they were all quite worn out by the time the day drew to a close.

Standon Hall is a quite magnificent manor house, which has been sympathetically converted to provide residential care in the form of fine country living for up to 22 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
