Every month at Birch Green we give our central display a new theme, and for February how could we not honour St Valentine’s Day?
Treasured photographs of our residents on their wedding days are nestled amongst a sea of hearts, rose petals and tea light decorations.
The display has prompted a real trip down memory lane, with everyone getting together to share fond memories of their own special day, as well as remembering loved ones who are no longer with us.
One resident was even able to proudly share her parents’ wedding photograph, and what a wonderful Victorian affair their ceremony was!
Another lady wasn’t able to purchase her wedding album at the time and so has always carried a small proof photo from her special day. Gill from our lifestyle team has had the photograph enlarged and framed and it now has pride of place in our resident’s room, which has brought so much joy.
Almost everyone who visits Birch Green stops to look at our beautiful display, commenting on how lovely it is to see some of our ladies and gents dressed up to the nines in their wedding finery.
