V E Day 8th May 2020

The ladies of the Hermitage marked the 75th anniversary of V E Day in style. Flags were flying as the ladies made decorations, red, white and blue pompoms to hang up. They made poppies (red and purple) to go in a window display for people walking past the home to see. Maintenance Man Ian Gould and Projects and Maintenance Manager Samantha Hurst decorated the gardens with flags, poppy displays and wooden soldiers (Tommy’s) to set the stage for entertainer Eleanor to come along and sing our favourite wartime songs. Which seemed to be a hit with the houses nearby as they were leaning out of their upstairs windows waving and singalong with us! The ladies had a special tea with delicious sandwiches, fabulous finger licking foods with sticky and sweet cupcakes. The ladies enjoyed playing games ’place the cigar on Churchill’ and ‘Find the square hiding Churchill’s hat’.
