Pupils bring alive Roar­ing Twen­ties

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

PUPILS from Ab­bots­field School in Hilling­don held a 1920s themed party for res­i­dents of a care home re­cently.

Year 10 pupils vis­ited Sweet­croft care home, in Sweet­croft Lane, to hold the party as part of the Queen’s 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

The school had ap­plied for fund­ing from Unilever ear­lier in the year and af­ter be­ing given the thumbs up they hired 1920s dancers and pro­vided a spe­cial tea.

Res­i­dents also told sto­ries of their mem­o­ries of the Queen’s Corona­tion with tears in their eyes and thanked pupils for bring­ing the Queen’s cel­e­bra­tion to them.

Sam Ali­son, man­ager of Sweet­croft care home, said: “We all thor­oughly en­joy the vis­its from Ab­bots­field School, but we’re even more thank­ful for the Queen’s cel­e­bra­tion party they laid on for the res­i­dents.

“Its nice to know that the school gives up some of their time to come out to the com­mu­nity and in­ter­act with the older gen­er­a­tion”
