Glenvale Park has been open for 6 weeks and over that time we have hosted open days and welcomed entertainers, we have become acquainted with our fabulous hairdresser, and we’ve even had a visit from the local fire service, it has certainly not been dull.
We have had a fantastic few weeks, settling in, getting to know each other and making new friends, it’s been lovely, and the jubilee weekend has been the icing on the cake.
There was so much going on, on TV we watched as the Queen had tea with Paddington, Prince Louis won the hearts of a nation at the Trooping of the Colour and the sky above Buckingham Palace was illuminated with a giant corgi and a pot of tea. History has been made and we were all a part of it.
We have been planning this weekend for a while. It has been very special, the majority of us remember the coronation, and I don’t think that any of us dreamed that 70 years later we’d be planning a platinum jubilee party.
Our weekend celebrations were fabulous; not only did we follow the live coverage on TV, but we also hosted our own jubilee barbeque. Glenvale Park was decorated beautifully, decked out in red, white, and blue, photographs of the Queen adorned the walls, and the scene was set for a huge celebration. Our families joined us for an afternoon of fantastic food and entertainment. There was singing, there was dancing, and the atmosphere was electric, almost magical. Everyone was in such high spirits, it was reminiscent of the coronation, only the food was more plentiful.
We have had a truly wonderful few weeks, any concerns that I might have battled with before moving into Glenvale have well and truly vanished, I couldn’t think of a better place or a nicer group of people to celebrate such an auspicious occasion with.
Queen Elizabeth has achieved something that no previous British monarch has, and we are delighted that we were able to celebrate the occasion in style, surrounded by our friends, and our loved ones, it was a weekend that we shall never forget.
