Musical entertainment with a 'remembrance' theme was held on Monday 12th November, with lots of lovely songs from the 1920-1940s, which were sung by Sheena and a special last post from Alan on the trumpet.
The Oak Grange Choir put on a wonderful performance during our remembrance gathering service on 9th November for all our families and friends – it was very moving. Two Oak Grange residents have lived through two world wars, and they were part of the wreath-laying ceremony, laying poppy wreaths on our table of remembrance to the sound of the last post.
We sang 'I Vow to Thee My Country', 'God Save the Queen', 'Amazing Grace' 'Jerusalem' and a medley of songs connected to wartime, and all of our visitors were presented with a homemade poppy from residents. We then finished with a sherry toast.
It ws a lovely, reflective afternoon to mark such an important date.
