Langford View recently welcomed officers from Thames Valley Police to their ‘Blue Light’ coffee morning during which the officers were offered a free bacon sandwich and hot drink.
The idea behind the ‘Blue Light’ event was to invite emergency services employees such as paramedics, police officers and firefighters to the home in thanks for their hard work in Bicester. The home wanted to recognise the people who enter these demanding professions and who support us and keep us safe every day.
The event was a great opportunity to bring people together: it was well attended by residents and their friends and family as well as members of the local community. The officers appeared to enjoy their breakfast and even had time to ‘arrest’ the home manager (she was released soon after with no charges)!
Residents also recently enjoyed meeting and getting to know volunteer firefighters who visited the home and brought their fire engine for residents to see close-up. The firefighters received a warm welcome and residents were fascinated to learn more about their work.
Langford View are planning to hold another ‘Blue Light’ coffee morning in the future, so if you or someone you know works for the emergency services, follow the home on Facebook to keep up to date with the details.
