Celebrating VE Day with music and reminiscence at Lukestone Care Home

Saturday 8 May marked the 76th anniversary of Victory In Europe and the celebration is close to our residents’ hearts at Lukestone Care Home.

To honour the date, we decided to hold a day of celebration, which began with the national two-minute silence at 11 am. This allowed our staff and residents to reflect and think, remembering the lives lost and sacrifices made in wartime. We also created a VE display of photographs and historical information.

We were delighted to welcome singer Jasmine to our Home and our residents and staff waved their union jacks whilst listening to her performance, part of which included Winston Churchill’s speech from 1945. Some also took to the dance floor for a spin!

The wartime music touched many of our residents, especially the finishing song, Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again‘.

The afternoon continued with soft wartime music playing in the background while we hosted an afternoon tea of scones, cream and jam, a fruity flag traybake and many different delicious snacks.

As we sat around the table, we shared experiences of the war days. It was the perfect ending to celebrate such a victorious day in the history of Europe.
