On Saturday the 21st of April the residents, residents, their relatives and the community celebrated National Care Home Open Day at Longlands.

A member of the community, Lee Lidbury, showcased 100 years of RAF collection for the residents and visitors to enjoy. His keen interest in collecting World War II relics was born after learning more from his great uncle who was in the RAF, as well as during his own time spent as an air cadet. The residents at Longlands certainly did enjoy what Lee had on offer!

Longlands also had Alan Hook, who plays the saxophone in some other OSJCT homes to play for the residents. Home Manager, Vilma Collaku, and Activity Coordinator Angela Lindsay, got down to boogie with the residents.

Later in the afternoon, entertainers, Sparky and Spirit, who often perform for residents in care homes, sang to the crowd whilst everyone enjoyed a selection of freshly baked cakes that was offered with their afternoon tea.

Care home Open Day at Longlands was a well enjoyed, fun afternoon which was welcomed by all!
