Gracewell of Camberley Hosts Special VE Day Street Party

Gracewell  |  May 16, 2018

Residents and team members at Gracewell of Camberley celebrated VE Day in style, hosting a special street party featuring great musical entertainment and delicious food.

The party included traditional food from the 1940s, as well as vintage cars from the era brought by U3A Camberley.

In attendance was the Deputy Mayor of Camberley, Councillor Steve Masterson, and Councillor Jacqui Vosper, as well as children from the local Hawley Hurst Nursery.

The event was held to honour Victory in Europe Day, which marked the anniversary of Germany’s surrender during the Second World War.

The fun-packed day was boosted by glorious sunshine, as team members and residents danced together to the sound of great live music.

The VE Day celebrations are just one example of the wide array of activities that Gracewell of Camberley hosts throughout the year, which enable residents to live active, fulfilling lives. 

The luxury care home offers personalised care to all residents, tailored to a range of individual needs, including nursing care and assisted living.

Mel Barden, Activities Coordinator at Gracewell of Camberley, said: 

“Our special VE Day street party was a great way to honour the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much for our country, and bring residents and the local community together.

“I would like to thank all the team members and volunteers involved, as well as the Deputy Mayor and Councillor Vosper, for making the event such a success.

“Such events give residents the chance to socialise, discuss the past, and enjoy great live entertainment and delicious food – and we look forward to hosting many more such events in future.”
