Heath Lodge recently joined in with celebration of the popular local 1940s weekend. The 1940s weekend is celebrated in the local towns of Sheringham and Holt and was first held 22 years ago as a one-off event but due to its popularity, is now held annually. It’s a celebration of the wartime efforts of allied forces and the remarkable resilience shown by those who dealt with the hardships on the home front.
Heath Lodge had the brilliant Gerry Graham entertain all residents, team members and visitors who participated in the event. Gerry performed music and comedy from the 1940s and entertained his audience with his set ‘Switched on Swing’, which had everybody’s toes tapping!
Everybody was so enthusiastic and loved joining in with the festivities. Lifestyle Manager Storm said ‘not only was it nice to have 1940s themed entertainment, but it was also so lovely to hear stories from our residents about that time in their life. One of our residents told me she was only 8 years old in the 40s! It was a wonderful atmosphere and our residents have requested for Graham to come back to entertain us all again soon. I would like to thank all the staff members in all departments who jumped in to help to make it such a success.’
