Special garden party held for the Queen's Jubilee
To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we held a celebratory garden party for residents at our Bishopstoke Park development.
The event was hosted in the landscaped grounds of Bishopstoke Park, a 19th century Mount building which is now a vibrant retirement community. The celebration replicated a street party, in which all residents were able to come together to join the rest of the UK to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 75th anniversary on the throne.
The Lollipops - a 1940s-inspired vocal trio - provided entertainment throughout the afternoon, performing classics such as Dancing in the Street, Hit the Road Jack and Twist and Shout. A delicious traditional banqueting platter was also served and included a wide range of popular British classics such as beef & horseradish Yorkshire puddings, sausage rolls and scotch eggs – it proved to be extremely popular with all the attendees.
Gaye Collins, General Manager of Bishopstoke Park, said:
Everyone had a fabulous time singing and dancing to the music and enjoying the fantastic community life here at Bishopstoke Park. It was a great opportunity for people to come together, have fun and celebrate the Queen.
Set in the historic parish of Bishopstoke, Bishopstoke Park offers a dynamic retirement community offering a range of beautiful one- and two-bedroom independent living homes, assisted living apartments and an onsite care home, all complete with state-of-the-art facilities such as a wellness centre, spa, and swimming pool.
