A Royal Celebration
We had lots of fun celebrating the Queen's birthday here at Westgate.
We celebrated Carers Week with a delicious buffet to show our appreciation for all their hard work.
Barchester wanted to show their appeciation for all staff who worked so hard during this pandemic, so they sent out thank you cards and wristbands to everyone.
VE Afternoon at Westgate House
Team members and residents enjoyed an afternoon tea on VE Day, fun-filled activities and refreshments. Residents spent time reminiscing about their time in the army and waved flags remembering that special day.
One of the residents was in the woman’s land army and timber corporation. Today she is one of Westgate House's prestige residents. These medals were presented to her for her services in WW2.
