Caroline and Test Valley Mayor joined residents at the Bupa Knights Grove Care Home for Silver Sunday
Residents and staff at Knights Grove on Thomas Road, North Baddesley, held an afternoon tea dance and invited their families, friends and elderly members of the local community for a fun afternoon.
Silver Sunday is a national day of free fun and activities for older people across the UK and celebrates the value and knowledge that they bring to our communities. The event also aims to tackle the loneliness and isolation felt by many older people by providing social activities to encourage them to get out, try new things and meet new people.
Danni Davies, general manager at Knights Grove, said: “It was a real treat for us to have both Caroline Nokes and Mayor Ian Carr join us on such an important day. They were really eager to get to know the residents and fully support Silver Sunday.
We always enjoy seeing our residents having fun with their friends and families. Having our local MP and Mayor both turn up was just the cherry on the cake.”
