Wonderful VE Day celebrations across Herefordshire Care Homes today. The 75th anniversary of the momentous occasion when we marked the end of the war in Europe. We talked a lot today about those times. We drank tea, ate delicious cakes and of course sang our hearts out to Dame Vera Lynn. The residents spoke about certain similarities to the situation we find ourselves in today. Out of the darkness, light shines through, just as it did then and like it is doing now . We are all safe and well, and we will get through this. We fought then, and we fight now. Our current situation is far from ideal, but with the usual stoicism and resilience our residents continue to battle on. We’ll get there, let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can all be together again .
