Runwood Homes commemorate Remembrance Day.

Residents and staff across Runwood Homes have been paying their respects on Remembrance Day, from decorating, knitting poppies and hosting special events. Remembrance Day honours the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces community, the British and Commonwealth veterans, the Allies that fought alongside us and the civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

Darrell Briggs, a 99 year old resident at Frank Foster House in Theydon Bois, Essex, was more than happy to show off his service medals proudly. Another resident, Margaret Carter, shared her Veterans Lapel medal and certificate which she received for being a veteran who served in the Second World War. Frank Foster House proudly decorated in honour of the occasion, making poppy wreaths, and one resident, Pat, even knitted over 200 poppies. 

                  

                                      

Windmill House commemorated Remembrance Day with relatives and the Windmill House Team. Staff at the home said “It was a very poignant but enjoyable morning. I think you will all agree that the smiles say it all.”

                  

Residents at Leatherland Lodge had a particularly special Remembrance Day, as resident veterans were awarded with a special veteran medal to honour their service. Residents decorated the home beautifully and invited their family members and friends to pay their respects together.

     

Residents at Rowena House recently got involved in an arts and crafts session at the local community craft shop, the Ministry of Crafts. Residents were invited to take part in making a stained glass window art piece for Remembrance Sunday. The shop kindly displayed their artwork in the window for all to see.

Homes such as Lower Meadow and Park View also decorated their homes beautifully to pay their respects.
