Residents at Doddington Court care home enjoyed a social distancing afternoon tea as they celebrated the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Although the coronavirus pandemic meant that they couldn’t have the big VE Day celebrations originally planned, it didn’t stop residents and staff at Sanctuary Retirement Living’s home from celebrating.

They marked the occasion with lots of decorations and flags throughout the service and, to help residents celebrate in style, the in-house catering team created an afternoon tea.

“It was a great opportunity for them mark the occasion in a safe way, and raise a toast to our World War II heroes.
