March 2021: Fun At The Fair

Resident Vera and her late husband Stanley owned Stanley Thurston Family Fun Fair and Sons before passing on the family run business to their son Stanley.

To celebrate Vera's 94th Birthday we organised Vera a fun fair themed party complete with traditional  fairground stalls, candy floss, burgers and mini doughnuts!

Vera and other residents spent the afternoon at the fair where Vera reminisced on her life at the fair, her party even featured in Bedford Newspaper Bedford Today!

Paul Buckle, Peripatetic Home Manager, said: “It was such a lovely afternoon and a great excuse to get all the residents together for a celebration, adhering to all the necessary Covid-19 precautions of course."

"Obviously, spirits have been fairly low within the home with families not being allowed to visit. However with a birthday party and the news that we will be able to accept one visit per resident soon, the mood in the home has definitely lifted."
