Residents and staff got together to watch the races, and also celebrated in a very Royal Ascot fashion by having a glass of fizz, a garden party with food, afternoon tea and taking part in a sweepstake, dressing up in Royal Ascot fashions, making and modelling fancy hats and placing pretend bets.
Jodie Rakhar, general manager at the home, said: “We’ve had a fantastic time celebrating Royal Ascot, it is such a great event to watch and it is wonderful to see the crowds back again.
"We all had a little flutter between ourselves even though none of us has much of a clue about odds or form.”
One resident at the home commented: “I love Royal Ascot and seeing the Queen, the amazing hats and all the fantastic outfits.
"I haven’t got a clue about horse racing, I just choose the colours I like best.
Jodie added: "Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.”
