Independent living tenants join together for Coronation parties
Our tenants have been getting into the party spirit as they celebrated the King’s Coronation.
We held several parties at our independent living schemes, where tenants enjoyed entertainment fit for the King.
Tenants at Jubilee Court and Amounderness Court watched Northeast Producers Travelling Theatre Company perform One Fine Day, whilst singer Andy Smith belted out some sing-along classics at Stanner Lodge, Hennel House, Lowerhouse and St John’s Court.
The parties were a great way for tenants to get together and meet new people, reducing social isolation.
David and Sylvia told us: “It has been a good day. I really enjoyed singing along to the performers. It is really nice that Progress Housing Group organises this. It is nice to socialise, as otherwise, we would never have seen some people.”
Wilma said: “Where else could you go and get entertainment for such a low cost? It has been really good value for money. The main thing has been the fact that it has got people out of their flats and mixing with people in the communal area.”
Zena said: “I really enjoyed the performance by Northeast Producers. They did a lot and interacted well with us.”
Sam Beattie, Progress Involvement Officer, said: “The Coronation has helped the lift the mood of the nation and it has been heart-warming watching the tenants get into the spirit of things.
“It was also a great way to bring people together, as we invited tenants from nearby communities to join in the celebrations.
“Tenants told us they had a great time, with one saying it had made their day.”
Our Community Involvement Team also supported a party at St Mary’s Community Centre in Leyland, where guests enjoyed a two-course lunch, royal-themed cakes, table magic and a sing-along.
