Sunshine, songs and sausage rolls all played a part in helping our residents and their families celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style with a party at Broughton House Veteran Care Village – the first big event we’ve held since before the pandemic.
More than 50 people enjoyed the occasion, which took place in our new function room and in our delightful garden amid bright sunshine.
It was also the first time our new Veterans’ mess has been open to non-residents.
Our chefs prepared a scrumptious Jubilee buffet which included sausage rolls, pork pies, sandwiches, trifle and Black Forest gateau.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Monton Voices Choir, and Tracey Hilditch from our own wellbeing team. Tracey sang hits from the 1970s and 1980s and led a chorus of Happy Birthday in honour of Broughton House resident Jean Mack, who was celebrating her 90th birthday.
Much-loved Jean served in the Royal Navy and was a volunteer at Broughton House throughout the 1990s.
The Jubilee party also featured a raffle with a range of prizes, including a rugby ball signed by Salford Red Devils players.
A wonderful and memorable occasion was rounded off with the singing of the National Anthem.
As you can see from these photographs, the event was a great success and everyone involved had a super time!
