Residents at Gracewell of Weymouth, the largest care home in Weymouth, have been busy making bunting in preparation for the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Residents have decorated the care home’s main windows at the front of the building to help the local community feel involved in the celebrations.

As part of the historic anniversary, residents will be treated to themed food and cupcakes with various activities set to take place in the home.

Meanwhile, Weymouth town has fully embraced the celebratory spirit, with everything from old bras and knickers to old curtains being used as bunting on the special anniversary.

Speaking of the celebrations, Racheal, Activities Organiser at Gracewell of Weymouth, said:

“We have lots of fun activities planned for this Friday, including a virtual karaoke with a local entertainer Aaron Carter. The residents are really looking forward to it.”

Mr Phillips, a D-Day veteran and resident at Gracewell of Weymouth, said:

“I think it’s lovely what the home is doing. I am looking forward to the different things that they have planned. I will of course be taking a moment for myself to reflect and remember.”
