Highmarket House care home in Banbury is opening its doors to the local community for a special celebration to mark the upcoming royal wedding.
On Saturday 19th May from 11am, Care UK’s Highmarket House on North Bar Place is inviting local people for a ‘right royal knees up’ and to raise a glass to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The home will be adorned with union jack bunting and residents will have their British flags at the ready for a live screening of the wedding. The care team has also organised a special ‘street party’ in the home’s garden. There will also be live entertainment from comedy ventriloquist Paul Dumas at 2.30pm. Visitors and residents will also be joined by youngsters from Bicester Children’s Home to celebrate Harry and Meghan’s special day.
Dawn Covill, home manager at Highmarket House, said: “Celebrating Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day is not only a wonderful opportunity to bring the community together, but it’s also a great reminiscence activity for residents – particularly for those living with dementia. Many of the residents love to talk about the Queen and her life, so celebrating the marriage of her youngest grandson is a great talking point for us here at Highmarket House.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the bunting out once again for a day of celebrations, and we hope the local community will join us in raising a glass to the royal couple!”
