ROYAL Star & Garter has celebrated all things American at its care home in Surbiton.

Residents enjoyed a three-day America Day party, singing songs by US legends including Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, tucking into iconic meals and dressing up.

The Home in Upper Brighton Road was decorated with bunting, a giant poster of the Statue of Liberty, and the Star-Spangled Banner.

At lunch, veterans tucked into a Feast of America, which included quintessential dishes such as Cobb Salad, sticky bourbon barbeque chicken, loaded hot dogs and Cajun chicken burgers. Desserts included pancakes and New York cheesecake.

The party took place over three days from Tuesday 29 September to Thursday 1 October, allowing all residents in the Home’s three floors to take part and enjoy while observing social distancing.

It was organised by the Home’s Activities team.

WWII veteran Amy said:

“The decorations were amazing, the staff put in so much effort. The food was delicious and we had good fun singing and dancing to Ol’ Blue Eyes and the King.”

In August, residents at the Surbiton Home enjoyed a Caribbean party. 

Royal Star & Garter provides loving compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia.
