Remembrance Day at Knowles CourtResidents at Knowles Court, nursing and residential care home, in Bradford enjoyed celebrating Remembrance Day.

On the afternoon of the 11th of November Residents held a Remembrance Day memorial service. Home Manager, Sam, Colleagues and Resident Madge all read a poem at the service. Wellbeing Coordinator, Julie, read a verse from the bible and a piece about the Cenotaph and what is represents. 

All Staff and Residents then had a minute’s silence, then played ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ by Vera Lynn, whilst Staff and Residents laid a cross with a poppy onto the Cenotaph. They ended the service by saying the Lords Prayer together. 

Residents enjoyed making poppies for the Remembrance Day display.

Residents, Madge and Sheila, said “It was a lovely service. Thank you, Julie, for organising it.”

Jenny, another Resident, added, “I enjoyed placing the cross onto the Cenotaph.”

Samantha Whinray, Care Home Manager, commented, “Thank you Julie for the service, all the Residents really enjoyed it.”
