QAHH celebrates The Diamond Jubilee in style
On Tuesday 5th June residents and staff at The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home honoured the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a day of festivities.
The celebrations kicked off with a fantastic performance from The Melodians Choir in the day room. Residents waved their flags and sang along to classic tunes, culminating in a fine rendition of God Save The Queen.
The rain failed to dampen spirits. Staff – dressed in the 1950’s theme – worked tirelessly, hanging bunting, making crowns, blowing balloons and laying tables, in order to transform the Social and Recreation room into a marvellous indoor street party.
The kitchen produced a delicious buffet complete with coronation chicken sandwiches and two wonderful cakes which Harry, our eldest resident at 102, had the honour of cutting.
No QAHH event is complete without a raffle! The residents won lots of fantastic prizes, generously donated by individuals and local organisations and the draw raised £130 for the Hospital Home.
Our superb pianist kept everyone in the party spirit and the day ended with a right royal sing-a-long with Rule, Britannia and lots of flag waving.
