Peabody Ve Prescota

Despite the lockdown, many of us recently commemorated VE Day including customers using our Care and Support services.

Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May marked 75 years since the end of World War II in Europe. Like many others, our staff and residents found ways to safely mark this special occasion over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Residents of Prescott House, a care scheme in Sussex, joined staff for afternoon tea in the garden where they enjoyed plenty of cakes. They also had a sing-a-long to some of their favourite war-time tunes. Lisa Peters, Scheme Manager, said: "Although we were observing social distancing, it was lovely to see everyone putting aside their current worries, even if it was for just a  couple of hours."

Meanwhile at Pioneer House, a supported housing scheme in Essex, residents took the opportunity to dress up for the occasion.

While at Avalon House in Grays, Essex (below), customers cooked some special VE Day treats.

We've shown here just a small selection of the activities that took place but we're pleased to say that a good time was had by all!
