The bunting is up, the special festive hats have been created and the baking has begun. AEM services across the region are all set to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next week.
The Beechwood service in Nottingham has been getting creative. Many of the service users have got involved in jubilee crafts over the last few weeks. They have learned how to make crowns, produce their own bunting and have been baking cakes. They will be gathering together too for a special tea party next week to celebrate.
For weeks service users at the Mundy Street day centre in Heanor have been learning all about the royal family in the lead up to the jubilee. As part of the project, they have created their own bunting as well as a wall display (pictured) about the royals. Next week they’ll be holding a party in the centre for service users.
Over at Iedale service in Retford the decorations are in place and plans have been made for a barbeque. At nearby South Lodge an afternoon tea party has been arranged for service users in their gardens. Meanwhile, the Carlton Road service in Worksop is also preparing celebrations and have a party planned during the jubilee weekend.
The Sherwood Centre at Mansfield Woodhouse is also hosting an afternoon tea party for its service users and their parents. And special outdoor celebrations have been organised for service users at the Fairview and Lynton services.
Pupils at Sutherland House School have a little longer to wait for their jubilee celebrations as they will take place when they return to school after the half term holidays.
