Fun in the sun at Sandringham for Red House ResidentsIn preparation for the Queen’s Jubilee, four Residents at HC-One’s The Red House residential, nursing and dementia care home, in Huntingdon, went on a trip to Sandringham House and Gardens.

Leo, Bridget, Ann and Daphne, were accompanied by Colleagues Catherine, Simon, Chantelle and Claire on the visit and had such a lovely time enjoying a walk around the beautiful gardens in the sunshine. 

Afterwards the group went on a tour of Sandringham House and the Residents were absolutely thrilled at being in the Queen’s home, and being able to see lots of pictures, paintings and so many other historical items dating right back through the Royal Family. 

After the tour, the made their way back through the gardens towards the picnic area where all sat down and enjoyed a lovely, packed lunch and a well-deserved drink before a visit to the souvenir shop and then back on the journey home. 

A lovely time was had by all, with everyone particularly enjoying the tour of the Queen’s house. One of the Residents said, “It was the best day we've had in a long time. We would like to thank the staff for taking us.”

Katie Coulson, Care Home Manager, remarked, “How fantastic to be waving off our Residents today. Much needed trip to Sandringham to visit the Queen’s grounds, prior to the Jubilee weekend.”
