A right royal knees up – Quorn care home residents celebrate the King’s Coronation in style

Residents at a care home in Quorn enjoyed a royal celebration fit for a king.


Care UK’s Lonsdale Mews, on Farley Way, welcomed families and community friends to mark the King’s Coronation by hosting a special coronation-themed afternoon tea dance.


Guests received the royal treatment, with live entertainment from Kieran Sutcliffe, a Britain’s Got Talent finalist, who performed songs from across the decades throughout the event – getting everyone in the party spirit.


Celebrating in true British style, the team at Lonsdale Mews decorated the home’s garden with knitted coronation bunting and decorations hand made by residents during crafts sessions at the home.


The care team also hosted their very own ‘royal crown-off’ competition, where residents showed off their carefully crafted crowns as they competed for the title of best crown. Families donned their expert judging hats and put their art inspecting skills to the test as they decided on a worthy winner for the best coronation-themed crown.


Everyone was treated to a quintessentially British afternoon tea, complete with a classic Victoria sponge and scones with cream and jam, whipped up by the home’s head chef, and clinked their teacups in honour of King Charles.


Toby Sturgess, Home Manager at Lonsdale Mews, said: “We loved welcoming relatives and community friends into the home to enjoy the royal treatment as we marked this historic occasion.


“The King’s Coronation gave us the perfect opportunity to get together with loved ones and to toast to the new monarch. The coronation of the King is an event that is sure to be remembered for years to come, and here at Lonsdale Mews, we are proud to be a part of the royal festivities.


“It was wonderful to have the Lonsdale Mews family all together for a regally good afternoon – judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces, it was a huge success!!”


Lonsdale Mews offers full-time residential and dementia care, as well as short-term respite. The home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities and includes its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café. The layout of the building is configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.
