Taking place on Friday 19 June, from 2.30-4.30pm, the free event will be officially opened by Mayor of Test Valley, Iris Anderson.
With the sun expected to shine, Arbory residents, their families and members of the community will be able to have a drink and tuck in to some delicious food, freshly prepared on the barbeque in the home’s beautiful gardens.
Live music from the era will be provided by musical group Memory Lane and there will also be face painting, a tombola, candyfloss cart and cash prizes up for grabs for the best 60’s costume.
Iain Slack, Arbory’s general manager, explains: “We’re delighted that newly elected Mayor Iris Anderson will be joining us for our 60’s event. We hope that local residents will also be able to come along, as it promises to be an afternoon filled with music, laughter and good company.”
“Our events coordinator Julie Cost has done a fantastic job organising the day and everyone’s welcome, the more the merrier!” he added.
Arbory, based on London Road, provides personalised care and support for those with dementia and associated mental health needs. Through its varied activity programme and specialist care the team aims to help each resident to live a full and meaningful life.
Iain added: “Staying connected with the local community and taking part in a wide range of activities and interests is a key part of life at Arbory. Events like this are a fantastic way for our residents, family members and friends to come together in a social setting. And what better place to hold a party than our lovely gardens.”
